Looking forward to getting your hands on HTC's Flyer tablet? So are we. It looks like a Wi-Fi-only version of the slate will be on the way to the UK sooner rather than later, after it popped up for pre-orders on German site CyberPort.
The site is selling the device for €499 (£425), which as Unwired View notes, is a big discount on the €669 (£570) that Amazon's German site is planning to sell the 3G version of the Flyer.
These being pre-order prices, they may change of course. If CyberPort's price is accurate, though, it hints that the Flyer's Wi-Fi-only model may come in around the £425 mark when it launches in the UK.
The Flyer is HTC's first tablet, with a 1.4GHz single-core processor and a 7-inch screen with 1,024x768-pixel resolution. It comes with a stylus to jab the screen with and scribble notes, although traditional finger-touching works fine as well.
Its one possible shortcoming is it's expected to ship with Android 2.4 Gingerbread, rather than the tablet-focused Android 3.0 Honeycomb software. The Flyer will get an upgrade to the new OS, hopefully sooner rather than later, although we thought HTC has done a good job with a tablet version of its Sense interface.
Interested in the HTC Flyer? How big a deal is the lack of Honeycomb out of the box, and will you be opting for the Wi-Fi model, or the 3G one? Let us know your thoughts by posting a comment.
