HTC also touched a bit on release details for the HTC Flyer tablet, which will be launched in Europe this May.
Set to roll out on May 9, the unlocked, carrier-free HTC Flyer is priced at £599.99 ($981). Naturally, that seems like a rather high price to pay for a 7-inch tablet - especially one that is shipping with Gingerbread and getting a Honeycomb update later.
If the HTC Flyer does in fact make its way to the United States, we'll very likely see a big drop in the price stateside - if it is made available as an unlocked device. Don't forget that it's rumored to be headed to T-Mobile USA, which would make it seem cheaper with a subsidized price, but there will be a data plan attached.
Otherwise, U.S. consumers will just have to wait around for the HTC Evo View 4G tablet when that debuts with Sprint this summer.
