Of course, this is the off-contract price for the 3G version of the tablet. The HTC Flyer is set to offer a 7-inch screen, 1.5GHz single-core processor, two cameras, 1024MB of RAM and 32GB built-in storage among other goodies.
It's officially announced that the tab will be powered by Gingerbread at launch, but a Honeycomb update is anticipated to refresh the Flyer experience at some point in the future. Moreover, it utilizes the unique Scribe technology that allows you to use a digital pen to draw and write (among other things) on the tablet's screen.
It seems the 3G version of the HTC Flyer is to cost around $980 in most parts of the world, as a report coming from Germany mentioned similar price. It's officially confirmed that the tablet will be a Best Buy exclusive in the US.
