HTC Flyer now comes with free Scribe Pen in U.S.

Previously sold separately for $80, the Digital Pen stylus is now sold alongside the tablet at no additional costs

We gave a lot of flak on the release of the HTC Flyer here in the U.S., primarily because the hyped stylus pen was sold separately from the tablet. To add insult to injury, the pen retailed for a ridiculous $80 plus tax in Best Buy stores.

Fortunately, the electronics retailer has come to its senses and is now bundling every Wi-Fi HTC Flyer with a free stylus pen. Therefore, $500 will get the user both the tablet and Digital Pen, whereas it would have cost $580 beforehand for both. The stylus has been coming standard with the Flyer ever since its launch for the European market.

As the tablet market grows more and more aggressive, the pricing of the tablet is becoming ever more significant. Companies would need to do what they can to keep the price attractive and below the more ideal $500 price point.

The 7-inch HTC Flyer comes with a single-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 1024x600 resolution screen, front and rear cameras and Android 2.3.3. Check out our full review of the tablet here.
