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.

EVO View 4G Hands-On

EVO View 4G Hands-On

This year at CTIA 2011 we've gotten extremely close to the EVO View 4G. Like so close that we're basically married now. We saw this device earlier this year at Mobile World Congress 2011 as the HTC Flyer but we did not get to get nearly as close as we'd have liked, but then again, it wasn't quite ready for the spotlight in its then-unfinished form.

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.

HTC's Flyer promises to bring another new angle to the Android tablet marketplace, with its stylus input and HTC's focus on note-taking and content creation. A 7-inch slate in a slick unibody aluminum and matte-finish plastic, HTC aren't allowing us to hold the prototypes at the MWC 2011 reveal, but from what we've seen we're already impressed. Check out our first impressions after the cut.
