US Cellular HTC Flyer Variant Gets Update: It’s Honeycomb

The original HTC Flyer received the Honeycomb update in December, 7 months ago. Now to demonstrate the damage carriers can cause, US Cellular has just released the same update for their variant of the Flyer. When Ice Cream Sandwich is on most tablets, and Jelly Bean has been out for weeks, these lucky Flyer owners get Honeycomb.

Not only is it such an old upgrade, but it isn’t even available as an OTA. You have to download a tool from HTC’s website (hit the source link!). And if you’re a Mac user, forget about it. You guys will have to go to a US Cellular store for them to apply your update. The whole matter is honestly just sad. But it’s better than nothing.
