Remember the HTC Flyer tablet we first got our hands-on at MWC 2011 back in February? Well, we’ve had several reports of release dates for Europe, but now we have official word on when the tablet will begin pre-sales here in the States. Best Buy had scored an exclusive launch of the HTC Flyer WiFi version and now they confirm pre-orders to start on April 25th.
The HTC Flyer is a neat little 7-inch tablet that’s unique in that it features HTC Scribe technology, which allows it to be used with a stylus in addition to touch. This is an optional feature but will come in handy for note taking and sketching on the device. The tablet will not come out of the box with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but will get the update once Google releases it to HTC.
Other features of the tablet include a 5-megapixel back camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera, and 16GB internal storage that can be expanded with microSD cards. The screen resolution is 1024 x 600 and will be running HTC Sense on top of Android. However, it is powered by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm single core processor. Best Buy will be retailing the device for $499.
