HTC Flyer with Wi-Fi only appears in Germany

Summary: Netbook News reports the 7-inch Android-bearing HTC Flyer is on sale at Cyberport for €499 ($686). This price includes VAT (19%) so the US price would be in line with the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

SHARE:

There is a shortage of Android tablets with Wi-Fi only but one of them is now available for pre-orders (what exactly does that mean, anyway?) in Germany. The HTC Flyer was introduced at the MWC this month and is compelling to me for its 7-inch screen that accepts both touch and pen input. Netbook News reports the Flyer is on sale at Cyberport for €499 ($686). This price includes VAT (19%) so the US price would be in line with the Samsung Galaxy Tab. There is no firm date when the HTC Flyer will go on sale in the US.

    I'd have to get a pretty good hands-on before I would buy this one. Otherwise, I would pay the same for the Galaxy Tab and use it as wi-fi only, but with the option to activate the 3G. That said, the pen idea is pretty need, and may be worth giving up 3G if it really works well.
