T-Mobile to launch HTC Flyer in early July?
One feature that is unique to the Flyer is the HTC Scribe Technology which is a pen-type stylus that allows the user to write on a capacitive screen. Besides taking notes on anything that can be seen on the display, the user can highlight text, draw captions on pictures or even take notes during a meeting or presentation. And if you can't read your own handwriting, the Flyer has software that will take you back to the specific point in time when you created the undecipherable notes and allow you to listen to a tape recording of the actual words so that you can figure out what you were trying to write. And with the 7 inch screen, the HTC Flyer can be taken anywhere where note taking is a necessity.
The current speculation is that the HTC Flyer will get launched by T-Mobile in early July. Right now, the tablet can be pre-ordered at Best Buy. The big box retailer has a $499 price listed for the device. With the HTC Sense UI on board, the HTC Flyer will compete with fellow 7 inch tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the BlackBerry PlayBook.
Scott Anderson, head of merchandising for Best Buy Mobile, said, "We are excited to be the only national store where you can pre-order and purchase the Wi-Fi version of the HTC Flyer. There is a tremendous amount of excitement and curiosity about tablets in our stores and adding the HTC Flyer to the mix will drive even more interest."
