Instead, HTC has slapped its Sense custom user interface, seen on the company’s smart phones, over the top of Android 2.4 Gingerbread. For those keeping track of version numbers, Android 2.4 and Android 2.3 are both known as ‘Gingerbread’, since these two versions of the operating system are almost identical. Android 3.0 Honeycomb is a version specifically designed for tablets, rather than for smart phones. Sticking to the older version of Android has given HTC the time to customise the interface significantly. We haven’t seen the Flyer’s user interface in action yet, but HTC told us that it’s tweaked all of its apps to take advantage of the tablet’s extra screen space. For example, the email app will have two panels, showing your inbox and an email at the same time. HTC is one of the only companies that’s done a great job of skinning Android. Its Sense user interface has been making geeky phone software better-looking and easier to use ever since it first appeared on the Hero. Consequently, we’re cautiously optimistic about HTC’s software efforts on the Flyer. We also loved the Samsung Galaxy Tab, even though it only ran Android 2.2, so there’s hope for the Flyer too. But — and this is a big but — the Galaxy Tab came out about five months ago, before Honeycomb was even out. At the time, we were thrilled to embrace a more pocket-friendly, Android alternative to the iPad. But even Google has said that Android wasn’t well suited to tablets before Honeycomb emerged. Even if HTC’s Sense skin overcomes the fact that Android 2.4 isn’t optimised for tablets, we think it’ll be hard for any self-respecting geek to break the piggy bank open for a gadget that’s not cutting-edge. You may disagree, though. After all, HTC has proven with its phones that it can do a great job of designing a user interface. You may not particularly care which version of Android your tablet runs either. Also, HTC has promised that the Flyer will get an update to Honeycomb eventually. Being stuck on Gingerbread doesn’t mean the Flyer is likely to miss out on many features. You’ll still have access to the Android Market, which is full of apps and games to install on your robot friend. Android apps tend to be less elegant than the apps available for the iPad, and there are fewer of them. But, on the plus side, some of them offer wilder features — like augmented reality — and they tend to be very cheap or even free. The Android browser is also a treat, because it renders Web pages quickly and accurately. It supports Flash Player too, which means you won’t miss out on online videos, and you won’t have to rely on the separate YouTube app. Even if you have no interest in the latest cute cat videos from Japan, having Flash support in the browser is fantastic just for moving around the many sites that use it for menus and navigation.

Other Windows Phones with landscape QWERTY keyboards currently on the market are — how can I put this nicely? — not nearly as solid. The display is covered with scratch-resistant glass, the plastics that surround it are nice and solid, the battery cover is sleek brushed aluminum and the rest of the back cover is rubberized to assist grip. The 184-gram Arrive might be a bit on the hefty side for some users, but I love it. I can’t stand phones that feel cheap and plasticky, and the Arrive most certainly does not feel cheap or plasticky. It’s definitely on the thicker side, although it is thinner than older HTC devices with the same form factor. The slide-out QWERTY keypad adds the majority of the girth, of course, but it’s more than worth it; more on that later. In terms of appearance, the Arrive looks like an HTC HD7 from the front, with stylish silver mesh above and below the WVGA touchscreen to cover the ear speaker and the microphone. It also has a similar darkened chrome bezel surrounding the front of the case. Thankfully, however, the Arrive feels nothing like the HD7. T-Mobile’s supersized phone is a great handset that we thoroughly enjoyed when we reviewed it, but it is far from HTC’s most solid device — thanks to a light plasticky feel and a flimsy, paper-thin battery cover. Beyond that, you have the power/lock button on the top of the phone next to a 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a volume rocker and a microUSB port on the left side, and a dedicated camera button on the right side of the phone. The slider mechanism on the Arrive is very solid, though it’s a bit odd until you get used to it. When the display is slid all the way open, the mechanics of the slider pivot and result in the viewing angle you see in the images, which is not adjustable. The simple fact of the matter is that some will like it and some won’t — and I don’t. I would far prefer to keep the display parallel with the keypad because it suits my typing style better. It’s a smartphone, not a laptop, and you type with your thumbs, not with all 10 fingers. With the screen pitched forward like it is, the display points down toward my chest when I type instead of pointing straight at my face. It’s odd, but it’s hardly a deal-breaker for me. First things first… the display. While it might not bear a sexy name like “Super AMOLED” or “Super LCD,” the display on the Arrive is fantastic. The screen is obviously one of the most important components of a cell phone, and it pains me that some otherwise terrific devices are ruined by less-than-stellar screens.

However, Dell’s decided to have a go at the convertible again with the Inspiron Duo and answer the question of whether people should buy a netbook or tablet with, “have both”. To drum up interest, Dell has used a brand-new method for the conversion process. Rather than having to swivel the screen 180-degrees before folding it flat against the keyboard, the Inspiron Duo has a far easier and cooler method: the screen spins in the bezel. Converting from netbook to tablet takes a couple of seconds, with strong magnets quickly locking the screen into place at both ends of the rotation. It works amazingly well and looks so different that if you do it in public you’ll garner interested glances for sure. This system means that the 10.1in screen is fitted into a fairly wide bezel, making the Inspiron Duo roughly the same size as an 11.3in laptop. This really works in the laptop’s favour, as there’s more room underneath for a keyboard. With larger keys compared to other 10.1in netbooks, the Inspiron Duo is surprisingly easy and comfortable to type on. We found that we could get up a good speed without making any errors. All of the Chiclet-style keys are in the right place, too, bar the backslash, which sits underneath the Backspace key, although this doesn’t take long to get used to. Controlling the mouse is simple due to the responsive touchpad, which is sunk into metal-effect wrist wrest above two easy-to-reach buttons. While metal-effect may sound a bit rubbish, if we’re being honest, Dell has pulled it off brilliantly. Overall, the finish is fantastic and this is one netbook that both sticks out and looks more like a very expensive high-end laptop. The model we reviewed was the standard black version, bought from Dell in the US, but our images are of a bright-red sample machine that was in the building.
