We’ve been tracking this since Three announced it was to carry the device back in February. The 7″ tablet, which has a 5 megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, also includes the clever HTC Scribe technology.
One thing that has confused us slightly is the price. The prices we spotted earlier stated that it was £169 up-front and that £25 per month on a 24 month contract (see our picture here), however the website now seems to show the same deal for £30.99 per month.
HTC Flyer – available now on Three.
HTC’s first tablet, the pocketable HTC Flyer, is available online now and in Three stores tomorrow.
The HTC Flyer has a 7”, 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, making e-reading, watching movies and browsing the web a pleasure, and its slimline size makes it convenient to use while out and about, checking maps, buying apps or downloading music. The slate also boasts a tablet version of the company’s Sense User Interface for Android.
Book reading is even more fun on the HTC Flyer with its clever highlighting and annotation features using the magic pen. The pen can also be used to take notes on the fly, which are then accessible from other devices, via Evernote.
David Kerrigan, head of mobile broadband at Three commented, “Three is the mobile network that carries the most UK data traffic so it’s important that we offer the best connected devices. HTC smartphones are well loved by our customers, so we are pleased to be offering the HTC Flyer from today.”
