HTC Flyer: boss "feeling good" about slate sales

Interview with Reuters sees head of HTC Europe talk up future plans.

HTC’s European chief Florian Seiche has said he’s confident about the success of the newly-released HTC Flyer, and that he thinks tablets will boom over the coming years in ways we can only imagine.

Asked by Reuters about the Flyer, Seiche said, “It's early days but we feel very good about it.” Seiche added, “"I really believe that the tablet market is really going to be a big market in the future and this is just the start. In five years' time, schools will have tablets probably instead of physical notebooks. I think that's going to be such a massive wave of additional penetration in society. I think we can't even guess the potential."

HTC is said to already be priming two more tablets for releases this summer, each rocking a Flyer-beating 10-inch screen. Hopefully Android Honeycomb will come along for the ride. The Flyer is currently limited to the smartphone-centric Android Gingerbread.

Seiche also said that HTC remains committed to Windows Phone 7, saying Microsoft’s deal with Nokia means the platform will help it gain more mainstream attention. What’s more, he promised that HTC would have a phone packing in NFC in the next 12 months.
