The more budget-friendly and basic HTC Wildfire S has a 3.2-inch display and a 5-megapixel camera. After the $100 mail-in rebate, it will cost you $79.99. We first reviewed it for T-Mobile.

The HTC Flyer (also known as the HTC Evo View 4G for Sprint) is a 7-incher powered by a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and 32GB of onboard memory. It also comes with the optional Scribe pen, which is sold separately. The tablet, which also runs Gingerbread, is available for $399.99 after that same $100 mail-in rebate, plus a two-year service agreement and $54.99 data plan.
