Best Buy lands WiFi HTC Flyer launch exclusive

Best Buy and HTC announced at CTIA this week that Best Buy stores would have the exclusive pre-order rights on the WiFi HTC Flyer Android tablet. The little tablet will go on sale "this spring" according to both firms. I wish they would just tell us when the tablet would land. The tablet will run Android and use the HTC Sense UI over the top.

The Flyer might be an interesting little tablet with a weight claimed to be less than that of the average paperback book. That would make the Flyer very portable. If the buyer pays the extra for the optional Scribe digital pen, they will be able to write or draw on any on-screen content for notes and doodles. The pen can also be used to write notes using applications like Evernote.

Key HTC Flyer features include both WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. The tablet has a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 768. It also features dual integrated mics, the Android OS and support for Flash 10.1. HTC doesn't mention what version of Android the tablet will run. It has a 5MP rear camera with flash and a 1.3MP front camera. The tablet has 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded with microSD cards. Power comes from a 4000mAh battery.
