HTC Flyer heading to T-Mobile USA?
We recently reported  that HTC's 7 inch Android tablet would be coming this summer to Sprint as the HTC EVO View 4G. But that apparently did not rule out another carrier from offering the tablet under the original name, and without the 4G connectivity to WiMAX that will available on the EVO View 4G.

In fact, some promotional material suggests that T-Mobile will be offering the HTC Flyer. But which division of T-Mobile will get HTC's first tablet? Pocketnow suggests that it will T-Mobile USA because one of the pictures leaked shows a You Tube channel which only the Stateside division of the carrier has.

If The HTC Flyer airs its way to T-Mobile USA, it will join the upcoming LG G-Slate and the Samsung Galaxy Tab on the mobile operator's roster. Both the Flyer and the Galaxy Tab have a 7 inch screen while the G-Slate offers an 8.9 inch display. With 3 tablets to choose from, how can HTC grab the attention of potential buyers? The HTC "Scribe" could make the difference. That is the technology that allows an HTC Flyer user to write on the screen using a special pen that will work on a capacitive screen. Will that be enough to steer customers to the HTC device?

The promotional material that was leaked did not reveal any thing resembling a launch date, but did reveal that T-Mobile plans on offering a contest where the winner will receive a trip to Europe. That choice of destination also suggests that it will be the USA division of T-Mobile that will be offering the HTC Flyer.

Damn these tablets are getting more and more appealing to me @_@ I'd love to have this one. I'd probably scribble away during class though and not even take notes >.>;;

T-Mobile is getting better at its tablet & phone selection. T-Mo Owns the Android, WP7, Black Berry, And Symbian but yet they have a sinking boat :( im going to miss them and their unlimited Data plans.

Please enlighten me with how T-Mobile is a sinking ship or that they are failing? I keep hearing this and no one will give me a reason as to why they think that :/ Just because AT&T might be buying them doesn't mean they are failing. It happens all the time companies buy other companies. People sell their companies or branches of their companies as a way of getting a guaranteed amount of money rather then to keep running their business and hope they make that much. It's just a way for the company that owns T-Mobile to get a guaranteed return of money and an 8% share in their former competitors company.

Their in BIG Debt! If the merge doesn't happen, they are eventually going to sink. Also if they do merge unlimited data plans are gone and so are all its 3G Devices.
