HTC Flyer stylus sold separately, $80 at Best Buy
Various sites are reporting that the stylus for the HTC Flyer will cost $80, but there's no official word from HTC.
One of the coolest features about the upcoming
As first reported by DroidLife, Best Buy currently has the HTC Digital Pen for the Flyer listed at $79.99, on top of the $499.99 for the tablet itself. Though this may be Best Buy's price, HTC told CNET that it has not announced pricing for the stylus but did confirm that it will be sold as a separate accessory to the Flyer, as well as the upcoming for Sprint.
This news is upsetting to say the least. The HTC Flyer has a wonderful design and high-quality build, but it's not even running the latest Android 3.0 Honeycomb software nor does it have a dual-core processor. The whole allure of the Flyer is the Scribe pen and to make it an optional accessory, and an expensive one at that, does not bode well for the tablet. Not when you consider the competition and see tablets, like the Wi-Fi version of the 32GB , costing less and offering more.
That's just my 2 cents, though. What do you think?
