Pre-Order Your Wi-Fi HTC Flyer Today

If you have been waiting to get your hands on the new HTC Flyer tablet, you can get one step closer today, as Best Buy has opened their pre-ordering for the unit.

A quote from the press release on pricing and details:

Best Buy today announced the Wi-Fi HTC Flyer™ will be available for pre-sale beginning April 25 in all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile standalone stores. Best Buy is exclusively launching the highly-anticipated Wi-Fi only version of the HTC Flyer tablet later this spring. It will retail for $499.

$499.00 seems a bit steep for a non-honeycomb device, even with the added functionality of stylus writing and drawing. If the price point was $150 lower, I think this unit would fly off the shelves. It will be interesting to see what the response is going to be. Anyone planning on pre-ordering the Flyer?
