Best Buy To Launch HTC Flyer On May 22

HTC's first ever Android tablet, the HTC Flyer has piqued a lot of interest with its compatibility with a digital stylus. The tablet has been available for pre-orders, but has not gotten an official release date until today. Best Buy just announced that the HTC Flyer will be ready to ship by this Sunday, May 22nd.

The HTC Flyer features a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with 1024 x 700 resolution. However, it ships with Android 2.4 Gingerbread instead of the Honeycomb tablet OS, and it runs on a single-core 1.5GHz processor. The backside has a 5-megapixel camera, but lacks LED flash, and it supports WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and microSD. It comes in both a WiFi-only and 3G version.

The version slated for Best Buy is the WiFi-only version, which comes with 16GB of internal storage and will cost $500. The optional stylus is believed to cost an additional $80. There is no information yet on when the 3G version will be available.
