HTC Flyer Now Available At Best Buy

Back on the 1st we mentioned that HTC’s new Flyer, a 7-inch Sense UI, 1.5 GHz tablet was available for pre-order.  Well, as of now you can head on over to Best Buy’s site as the device is now officially available for purchase.  This is the WiFi (b/g/n) version running Gingerbread 2.3.  You can also purchase an HTC Scribe digital pen ($80) which is a stylus-like device that allows you to take notes, highlight, color, draw and pretty much interact with any text whatsoever that you encounter.  Hopefully we’ll receive word soon as to whether or not the device will get Android 3.0 or 3.1, making it the first device on the market to sport Honeycomb while being skinned. Hit the source link for Best Buy’s page if you’re ready to empty your wallet.  The device will run you $499.  Let us know what you think in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
