HTC Flyer spotted on Amazon for €669

The online retail giant gives possible release price of HTC’s latest tablet

The HTC Flyer was officially revealed earlier last week at the Mobile World Conference with impressive specifications and gaming features. Unfortunately, HTC neglected to announce a price for their upcoming Android tablet.

Luckily for us, Amazon.de is now listing €669 for the HTC Flyer, or about $910. Although 900 US dollars is a lot for a tablet, Android Police reports that this is the pre-order price with the tax already included. Therefore, if this listed price is accurate, it gives us a good gauge on how much the HTC Flyer may cost once released in the States. In fact, if priced at around $700 to $800, it will put the Flyer in the same ballpark as the $800 Motorola Xoom.

The 7-inch HTC Flyer will be available Q2 2011 with Android 2.4, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and OnLive connectivity for U.S. customers.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
