The 7-in. (18 cm) HTC Flyer tablet makes a great choice for any hardworking father looking to leverage a little technology to help him get things done more efficiently. The $500 wi-fi model is a Best Buy exclusive and features HTC's ultra-intuitive Sense interface atop Google's Android software.
The Flyer's powerful processor keeps everything humming along smoothly, but the real story is HTC's $80 Scribe digital-pen accessory.
Dad can use it in conjunction with the Flyer's Notes app to handwrite musings right on the tablet's screen. The app will even record audio files during meetings and time-sync them with scribblings as they happen, then attach everything to the meeting's calendar event for later reference.
