HTC Flyer up for pre-order in Germany, Galaxy Tab 10.1 coming to Europe in March

The HTC Flyer tablet took a special spot in our hearts with its unique HTC Sense skinned Android experience and active stylus support. Well, this kind of unique experience will cost you nearly $690 (500 euro), a hefty price for the small 7-inch tablet. If you don't mind the price tag, German online retailer Cyberport is now ready to take your pre-orders. Interestingly, the Flyer, which is expected with Android Froyo, is listed to run Android 2.4 Gingerbread. Whatever the initial version is, HTC promised to upgrade the 7-inch slate to Honeycomb some time in the future.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 might not be as innovative as the HTC Flyer, but with its 10.1 inches of screen estate it will catch the eye. The Tab 10.1 will arrive in March for Vodafone Portugal and we expect to see it in other marketse around that time or even earlier. The price? Well, folks over in Portugal will have to dish the whopping $970 (700 euro) for the tablet. In neighbouring Spain, the tablet will run at $480 (350 euro), but to get this price you'll have to sign a contract. Nothing surprising knowing the price of the Motorola XOOM, right?

I wonder how long it will be before the Flyer is available in the U.S.? And then related to U.S. availability, how long before the price drops to the $400 un-subsidized territory? 500 Euros is early adopter pricing.

Samsung sold a couple of million of their 7" tablets. More are on the way. It would seem that more than a few don't share your assessment.
