According to The Taiwan Economic News, the initial production order for the upcoming HTC Flyer Android-based tablet has exceeded one million units since its announcement at the Mobile World Congress last month. The seven-inch tablet has a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of internal memory and 32GB of flash memory with an on-board SD card. It also features On-Live gaming support as well as HTC’s pre-installed video downloading software, HTC Watch.
The HTC Flyer is set to debut next month for a price of around $600, which is less expensive than Samsung’s popular Galaxy Tab but more expensive than the base model of the Apple iPad 2. This puts the HTC Flyer in a nice mid-range point pricewise, and HTC expects the tablet to be a strong seller at least through August, based on this initial order. This plus two more HTC tablets coming this year means a continuing competitiveness in the tablet market for many months to come.
