This week HTC unveiled it’s first two smartphones with a dedicated Facebook button and its first tablet, which will access HTC’s planned movie-download service and a planned cloud-base gaming service.

The three Android-based products will be available in the U.S. The two smartphones will be available exclusively through AT&T sometime “later this year,” and the tablet is due in the second quarter globally and in the U.S., the company said.

The new Android-equipped 14.82-ounce tablet features 1,02 by 600 7-inch touchscreen, aluminum unibody, 1.5GHz processor, Flash 10 and HTML 5 for web browsing, and fingertip and pen interaction with the screen.

Other key features include 5MP camera/camcorder with 720p HD video capture and autofocus, front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video chatting, 32MB memory, GPS, MicroSD slot, MicroUSB port, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ and stereo Bluetooth 3.0.

Unfortunatelt, the Flyer does not use the Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS optimized by Google specifically for tablets but uses a tablet-optimized version of HTC’s Sense smartphone user interface on top of the new Android 2.4 OS version. It will be upgraded to Android Honeycomb in the second quarter.

The UI features a 3D homescreen and a carousel of widgets to put the user’s most important content and information front-and-center.

The tablet also features new HTC Scribe technology, a digital-ink technology that lets consumers use a stylus to handwrite notes in script, sign contracts, draw pictures, or write on a web page or photo. A related feature called Timemark lets users integrate notes taken at a meeting with audio of a recorded meeting. When a user taps on a word in the written notes, the audio of that portion of the meeting is replayed.

    There are other options out there; Windows 8 tablets such as the Surface, Ativ Tab and VivoTab Smart are starting to creep out, plus the BlackBerry PlayBook is still somehow on sale – but Android Jelly Bean is currently the main OS rival to the iPad 3 and iPad mini.
