    Hi Flyer fans! I'm seriously looking at the Flyer, but wanted to know what you like about it vs. a 10 inch dual core tablet running Honeycomb.

    Reason I'm asking is that I'm tempted to buy a Lenovo K1 tablet that's about the same price as the Flyer when you include the Stylus. But the Flyer looks really interesting.

    I have a Evo 4G and love Sense but is the smaller screen hinder you or is it a benefit especially when it come to protability? Also is the processer good enough when running games or other graphic intensive apps?

    Also what is the storage limit with the SD card slot. I've heard it can handle a 32gb card but I've also heard that it maxes out at 16gb.....

    Based on video, Flash and game performance, the Flyer beats the four dual core devices I have had recently or own now: A500, DX2, Thrive and Droid 3.

    Flyer also charges via USB, which is great for travel. Try the Flyer out. Nothing so far beats it for price and performance ratio.

    Added: I have a $45 32gb Sandisk in mine and works fine.

    I have no complaints on the speed of mine. It's very responsive. Then again, after nabbing this during Best Buy's $99 pricing debacle, I have no complaints about anything it does!

    We used to have the Galaxy Tab 10.1 before my wife destroyed the screen (I'm still fuming), and while I prefer the larger screen, it was still quite laggy. Whether that was due to HC or Tegra 2, I'm not sure. Like Rush said, the Flyer is fast. If you can handle the smaller size it's great. The problem is, Sammy and others are coming out with smaller tabs and the price is likely to be not much higher than the Flyer (unless you got it for $99 like we did). In addition, Nvidia has announced Tegra 3 (quad core) tablets may be out by the end of the year, or Q1 2012 so now probably isn't the best time to get a tab.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I took the plunge and bought a Flyer and am enjoying it quite a bit. Still playing around with it but the Speed and size doesn't seem to be an issue and is quite responsive. Gotten a few compliments about it at work (very cool is usually the response).

    Still a bit undecided on whether to keep it yet, especially with the holidays coming up.
