A report from Digitimes is claiming that HTC will only order one million HTC Flyers for production from now until August. This is in stark contrast to the 40 million iPad 2 units Apple is aiming for by the end of this year.

The low production numbers could signify modest expectations from HTC regarding expected sales of its new Android tablet.

Official prices have yet to be announced, but previous rumors of a $600 price tag are still possible. This would put the Flyer at a lower price point than the Galaxy Tab and Xoom, but higher than the supposed $500 iPad 2.

The 7-inch HTC Flyer at release will be using HTC’s Sense UI running on a version of Froyo. An update to Honeycomb should be possible sometime after the release of the tablet this spring.
