Best Buy Launches $499 Presale Of Wi-Fi HTC Flyer Tablet

The tablet market couldn't be any hotter if it tried, and while HTC has focused largely on smartphones over the years, the company's still diving into those crowded tablet waters with the launch of the Flyer. The Wi-Fi only version of the tablet has been talked about for months, but there's been no real clear indication of how much it'd cost Americans and when it would be available here.

Now, we know. Thanks to a Best Buy page on the device, we're told that the Flyer will cost $499 and will ship this week. Of course, it'll only ship with Android 2.3 (and a healthy dose of Sense), and if it's the Wi-Fi only model you crave, BB will be the only place to get it -- at least at first.


The pre-sales begin today at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile standalone stores, but are you really willing to plop down that much cash on a non-Honeycomb tablet? We're guessing it won't be an easy decision.

I think I would rather wait for honeycomb to mature a bit or at least for them to update this tablet to honeycomb. Plus at the $499 cost point a 10 inch model would be more reasonable.

eee pad 121 is $500 more but i bet you gonna have more fun than only android 2.3 os and asus says they gonna make more apps for the because if the HTC flyer gonna do the same than my HTC evo is not worth it for me, i like the color white is my favorite color but thats why i went to best buy to buy the HTC evo because was the only store with white evo

I still think the asus TF101 is the best option out right now for android tablets and it is now a must to have a tablet os on a tablet.

HTC generally makes good stuff, but I'm a bit disappointed in this tablet. The fact that it's lacking Honeycomb is a downer for now. At least this can change with a firmware update....
