Pre-orders for the HTC Flyer are available in the UK; coming in April
Always coming to the game ready and able, online retail Clove is now accepting pre-orders for the HTC Flyer which happens to carry an exorbitant price point of £600 ($970). If you can somehow scrounge the cash for it, you can guarantee yourself to be one of the first in your town to own this Android powered tablet. Naturally, the cost might turn off some people, but considering that the 7” tablet is packing a 1.5GHz processor and 32GB of storage, it can still prove to be a tolerable investment for early adopters; then again, it might not.
As it stands right now, the first shipments are expected arrive some time in mid-April, however, things can change obviously between now and then.

Are u kidding me?????
even if it has 1.5ghz, price is still exorbitantly high.......
i will definitely prefer xoom, as it looks like a true tablet and has a bigger screen
still, i will wait to hear the official price

There is a value-added tax component to the U.K. pricing that would not be present in the U.S. pricing.
I am wondering why HTC chose to release the Flyer in the U.K. first (as opposed to anywhere else)?

maybe they though the american pubic was too busy on XOOM/iPad to actually think about it so they deiced to use a temporally less competitive market while they work on the US market campaign.... but we may never tell

there is nothing to work on
this is an 1 year outdated product like their phoenes with single core
and when dual cores come they wont be able to compete with tegra
the only good thing about htc is unibody
fail in technology
fail in pricing

I think HTC is not getting the new tech news letters or something and probably think their single core processor is the latest break through "dual core? what are you saying you from the future or something?" says HTC lol
