Pre-Order Your Wi-Fi HTC Flyer Today

5

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?

  1. I most certainly want to. I think the pen would make the tablet much more productive. But the whole, “We don’t have Honeycomb yet because we need Sense” turns me off. And I think the size is right…The lack of dual core is a turn off too. I’d like to see bench marks. Especially with the rumor of Levono’s tablet.

    • The Levono tablet definitely has a lot of potential. It’s great to see so many companies trying to differentiate themselves by thinking outside the box.

  2. I would pre-order if I knew that the pen interface was excellent. Once I get the opportunity to try it out though i’ll hopefully be selling my ipad 2 for one. Though, i’m waiting for the HTC View 4g from Sprint.

  3. Pre-ordered this morning. Looks like I was the first one to pre-order it. I don’t see it flying off the shelves at $499 either. But it should be useful enough for me at work that I can justify paying that price.
