Wi-Fi HTC Flyer Tablet only available at Best Buy on May 22 for $500

The phone-maker's entrant into the tablet market finally arrives in the US this Sunday, though it only has Wi-Fi connectivity and the stylus is sold separately.

If you are looking for a Wi-Fi- only HTC Flyer tablet, then head to a Best Buy near you as it will be exclusively launching the tablet this Sunday for $500, (This includes all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores, as well as BestBuy.com.)

The Flyer has a 7" (1024 x 600) display, aluminum body, 1.5GHz Qualcomm chip, 16 GB of internal memory and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera. It uses a version of the HTC Sense UI on top of Android Gingerbread (2.3), which will eventually be upgraded to Honeycomb according to the HTC. But perhaps it is better known for what it doesn't include: the $80 HTC Scribe stylus, which, unlike the Flyer bundle sold elsewhere in the world, will be sold separately here.

No word yet on when the 3G/4G version will hit stateside even though it is already available in Europe. Sprint will also be carrying the same tablet though under the EVO View brand and it includes the stylus, according to Engadget.

Let us know how you like the Flyer.
