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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
