Some HTC Flyers are flying out of Best Buys on May 20

Summary:The sneaky big box retailer fooled us with a press release announcing the HTC Flyer will be launched on Sunday (May 22) when some stores are already moving units out the door -- today.

Despite announcing in a press release earlier today that the HTC Flyer will be exclusively launched in all Best Buy stores this Sunday, May 22, the big box retailer has decided to beat its own release date to the punch.

According to an anonymous source at Engadget, the stores that already have the Wi-Fi-only HTC Flyer tablets in stock are under instruction to move units out the door immediately. So go to, figure out which store has the slate right now, and get your Flyer before May 22.
