HTC Flyer tablet $299 at Best Buy starting in October

HTC Flyer tablet $299 at Best Buy starting in October

Best Buy and HTC must have had a sit-down recently regarding the Flyer tablet that's been out for some months, because come October 1st, the price of this tablet will be reduced by $200 from its original price of $499.99 to its lowest price ever, $299.99. It's time to drop those tablet prices, ladies and gentlemen, and it's not just because the Amazon Kindle Fire is scaring the cheese out of the competition (not verified, but quite possible). Low sales and the ever-deepening pool of tablets out there certainly has had an impact on the price of tablets across the board, as evidenced here in the Flyer and the now sold-out TouchPad from HP.

HTC Flyer tablet a 7-inch Pegatron rush-job for Q1 2011?

HTC Flyer tablet a 7-inch Pegatron rush-job for Q1 2011?

More chatter around HTC's new tablet, the HTC Flyer, has emerged, with a new Economic Daily News report suggesting that the company has worked with Pegatron to rush the first model out by the end of Q1 2011. According to the report, the 7-inch slate will run Android 2.3 as well as a new version of HTC Sense, and be followed by two Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets later in the year. That fits in with previous talk - which pegged the two follow-up slates as arriving in June 2011, at least one of which potentially having 4G LTE connectivity - and certainly paves the way for the Flyer to make its debut at MWC 2011 next week.

HTC Flyer tablet spec leak: single-core Snapdragon?

HTC Flyer tablet spec leak: single-core Snapdragon?

Specifications and a render of the HTC Flyer have supposedly leaked, ahead of the 7-inch tablet's expected sales debut in March. According to Amobil, the Flyer will have a 1024 x 600 resolution display - putting it on a par with the Galaxy Tab and run Qualcomm's 1GHz MSM8255 processor as found in the Desire HD.

That would make it a single-core chip, rather than the dual-core processors like the Tegra 2 found in rival slates. Still, the Adreno 205 graphics would apparently be good enough to make an HDMI output worthwhile, and there's supposedly twin cameras: a 1.3-megapixel webcam for video calls over Skype, and a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and face-recognition.

HTC: Flyer first of several tablets; NFC phone in pipeline

HTC has confirmed that the Flyer is the first of several new tablets, partially corroborating long-standing rumors that had previously suggested three models would be unveiled in the first half of 2011. Speaking to Reuters, HTC Europe head Florian Seiche suggested Flyer sales had been within the company's expectations; "it's early days but we feel very good about it" the exec said, though failed to give any numbers. Meanwhile, Seiche dismissed suggestions that Microsoft's partnership with Nokia might negatively impact HTC's Windows Phone plans, or indeed drive the company away from the platform.

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

Perhaps it's Friday paranoia talking, but it does seem like the US carriers (and retailers, for that matter) want to kill the chances of every tablet other than the iPad. News that the "Scribe" active stylus for the HTC Flyer will be an $80 accessory for the WiFi-only version Best Buy will sell (and, presumably, the HTC EVO View 4G headed to Sprint) has whipped the rug out from under the tablet's stubby Android feet, making it either a very expensive - $580 for WiFi tablet and pen - proposition or merely a 7-inch slate not even running Honeycomb.

HTC Flyer palm-rejection wins tableteer approval [Video]

As the tablet ecosystem hurriedly juggles to face the new iPad 2 threat, attention turns to slates with differentiating features to see if they've got what's needed to stand their own against the Apple juggernaut. The HTC Flyer's stylus input option may not have met with universal approval at its MWC 2011 launch, but it looks like those keen on digital inking may well have a solid experience with the 7-incher. Carrypad tested out one of the most important features, palm-rejection, to see if the Flyer could hold up to proper pen use.
