HTC is announcing a tablet computer, the "Flyer," which will go on sale in the second quarter. It's intended to be a high-end device, with an aluminum housing, a 7-inch diagonal touch-screen, a 1.5 gigahertz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 32 gigabytes of RAM and HSPA+ wireless capability.

It's launching with Android 2.4 but will be upgradeable to the upcoming "Honeycomb" version of Android optimized for tablets.

HTC designed a new version of its Sense interface for the larger screen of a tablet, with a carousel for navigating icons and widgets.

The Flyer also comes with a stylus for taking notes on the device.

The Flyer also has a 5-megapixel camera plus a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for videoconferencing.

The price of the Flyer and bundled services such as OnLive will be announced later.
