HTC announced their upcoming Android tablet, the HTC Flyer, at MWC today and it was sporting some pretty decent specs while others left you wondering “why?”.

OnLive Inc, for those of you who haven’t heard about them, is a company that offers instant gaming of major game titles to your TV, PC or Mac.

The Android app turns this into a spectator sport.
