Yesterday, when HTC announced the Flyer – its very first Android tablet – the company didn’t say how much the device would cost. Well, it looks like it will be quite expensive (but that’s not exactly a surprise).
Amazon Germany’s website says the HTC Flyer will cost €669 (about $900). Of course, that’s a pre-order price, so the tablet should be a bit cheaper when launched.
We still don’t know when exactly the Flyer will hit the shelves – HTC says it plans to release it in Q2, and that could mean as late as June. There’s also no word on what operators will offer the tablet subsidized, but I assume there will be some big ones to do it, not only in Europe and Asia, but also in the US.
The HTC Flyer runs Android 2.4 Gingerbread and features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels multi-touch display, HSPA+ (no phone functionality, though), Wi-Fi, OnLive cloud gaming, 5MP photo camera, 1.3MP video calling camera, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board memory, 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor, and MicroSD card.
