Video takes a look at the HTC Flyer
The HTC Flyer is a 7 inch tablet from the Taiwan based company that looks to be more of a stop-gap device put together by HTC before a bigger, more competitive model is released. We have seen this game plan before from Samsung whose Galaxy Tab unit created only a small ripple in the Android pool while the Korean based manufacturer now takes a more competitive shot at the tablet market with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The HTC Flyer will be powered by Gingerbread which will be upgraded to Android 3.0 in the future. The tablet comes with the new HTC Scribe technology. Using a stylus-esque pen, the user can draw or take notes. The Flyer is powered by a 1.5GHz single-core processor and offers a 1.3MP front-facing camera and a 5MP camera on the back. On board is 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage; a microSD slot is available to expand storage capacity.

We recently reported that the Wi-Fi only version of the HTC Flyer is available for pre-order in Germany through retailer Cyberport for the equivalent of $500USD. Another report had Amazon Germany offering the 3G HSPA model going for the equivalent of $904 USD. Either way, if the device makes it Stateside at these prices, it will run into some tough competition from the higher spec'd Motorola XOOM which is priced at $799.99 for the 3G/4G model and $539 for the Wi-Fi version from Sam's Club as we told you today.
