HTC Flyer scheduled to retail in May, pre-order price of £600
The HTC Flyer is the company's latest 7-inch Android tablet device which was showcased at Mobile World Congress in February this year. According to news sources, the tablet is scheduled to retail in May and available for pre-order now.
The HTC Flyer looks to be a slightly different breed of tablet devices on the market – it isn't using Android 3.0 or has a 10-inch display.
UK reseller Clove Technology has started accepting pre-orders of the HTC Flyer tablet and the price tag is 600 UK pounds, which is slightly higher than most tablet devices. Clove Technology has expressed that the HTC Flyer will be retailing mid April while another reseller, Carphone Warehouse has said that the tablet will be selling in May. At press time, there has not been any official word on when exactly the HTC Flyer will be on shelves.
The HTC Flyer sports a 7-inch display (1024×600), which is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Instead of dual-core processors, it is equipped with 1.5GHz single-core processor. One unique feature of the HTC Flyer is it comes with an optional "magic pen" that lets users draw, paint, write, highlight and even retouch pictures.
