  1. The HTC Flyer has gone up for pre-order at Carphone Warehouse, with the retailer announcing that the 3G version of the tablet will be available for £600. That works out to about $980 on the other side of the Atlantic. HTC will likely adjust pricing once it launches stateside to remain competitive, but for a for a 7-inch screened, single core device, running Android 2.4 instead of the tablet-optimized Honeycomb it still feels rather expensive. By comparison, the Apple iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G is priced between £500 and £659 in the U.K., depending on storage capacity.

    How is this even suppose to be competitive with other tablets? I was thinking this would be priced around $300 but $1000 is just plain ridicules. The Asus EEE Pad Transformer beats this table in every way for only $400. In addition it also has Honeycomb. I cant see HTC selling many tablets at this price.

    I really like HTC's hardware, but yea £500-£600 that's to steep for me. Hopefully the actual release price will be a lot lower or there will be some good deals with a contract.
  4. I have always liked HTC but wow this is pricey. I don't like them that much...
