HTC Flyer is available across Europe now, with magic pen
HTC’s long-awaited tablet called the Flyer is available across Europe from today. It will be available across a number of carriers, some of which are giving the device for as low as 129 pounds (~$209) with a contract. Price of a Flyer without contract will be 480 pounds (~$781) for the Wi-Fi only version and 600 pounds (~$977) for the Wi-Fi + 3G version. Great news is that the magic pen that made such a fuss around making the tablet more interactive will come with the package. That means the Europeans won’t have to pay extra for the pen, unlike the US where Best Buy plans to sale the magic pen for $80.
The HTC Flyer is the Taiwan mobile giant’s first attempt at tablets, and it sure added some differentiating features to the toy. Probably the most interesting of those is the stylus or magic pen (as HTC calls it) input method. You seem to be able to make a note on literally anything including notepad, calendars, webpages etc. and share or save them easily. It also has a unibody design like the latest high-end HTC smartphones and powered by presently industry’s fastest ARM processor with a 1.5GHz single core clocking speed.
