The HTC Flyer was always headed to T-Mobile USA, but it’s taken a long while for the Taiwanese company’s first tablet to actually make it to the magenta carrier. We’ve been hearing that this would happen ever since March.
Regardless, it’s here. Ten months later, but hey, if you’re a T-Mobile customer, you can now get an HTC Flyer that supports TMo’s ’4G’ bands. That is if you aren’t a T-Mobile business customer, in which case you’ve been able to get a Flyer for a while now, since the carrier decided to offer it exclusively to that channel first.
Anyway, the HTC Flyer for T-Mobile is strangely only available from HTC itself. If you hop over to the manufacturer’s website, you’ll be able to hit the magic Add to Cart button. That is if you have $299.99 to spare. That amount gets you a Flyer with contract. Upgrade pricing (with contract extension) is a bit extreme though at $454.99, but if the steep price isn’t an issue, you’ll be happy to know that you can do that too.
The HTC Flyer has a 7-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, a 1.5 GHz single-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with 720p HD video recording, a 1.3 MP secondary front-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, HSPA, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
