HTC Flyer Hits UK Pre-Order Status: Cheap Android Tablet?

Like many people out there the team here at OSM are very big HTC fans, previously we have enjoyed bringing you news about other products from the Taiwanese giant like the HTC Evo 3D and the Evo View 4G Tablet.

One of the other devices we have been following closely is the HTC Flyer, we have posted on all stages of this tablets journey, from rumors to leaks and official release, the latest news we have to bring you regards the HTC Flyers UK pre-order status.

According to Engadget this latest tablet can be yours for a mere £600, this device packs a whole host of features which include 32GB on board storage, 3G and Wi-Fi compatibility, 7inch 1024×600 display which is all powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm chip.

Although the Flyer will cost roughly £21 more than its Apple rival it should make a good alternative for anyone that planned to get the iPad 2 but had trouble with the ordering process. Although the offering from HTC may be smaller than the iPad 2 the guys over at Techradar.com think this Android tablet’s success may rely on its Flash Video support.
