The HTC Flyer is a new portable 7-inch WiFi-only Android tablet. Exclusively available from Best Buy, the official shipping day of the tablet will be on May 22, at a price of $500.
One of the main selling point of HTC Thunderbolt (when it was first announced) was supposed to be its ability to support Skype video calls. But now, as the device is too near to its release, Verizon has mentioned that Skype wouldn’t be ready in time for its launch.
Released officially earlier this week, the HTC Flyer is an Android tablet which won’t be arriving with Google’s tablet dedicated Android OS 3.0, Honeycomb. According to the leaked Amazon product page, which is apparently still live, the HTC Flyer will retail for a pricey €669 or $900 USD.
Though we are not sure regarding the authenticity of this news yet it was exciting enough for us to leave a mention of the same. HTC’s EVO Shift 4G has just now leaked into the market with a release date of 9th January. Missing the holiday season by such a small time period does not make any sense to me but I guess HTC somehow didn’t want to get lost in the holiday bubble.
