HTC Flyer tablet to hit Best Buy on Sunday

Best Buy has confirmed that it will begin selling the HTC Flyer Android tablet on May 22nd. The date had sort of leaked a while ago, but now it’s official. This Sunday Best Buy will be the only retailer in the US selling HTC’s 7 inch tablet.

The Best Buy version sill ship without a digital pen, but the tablet does have an N-Trig digitizer and you’ll be able to buy the pen as an optional accessory if you want to use the tablet’s handwriting and drawing features. The tablet also has a capacitive touchscreen with support for finger input.

The HTC Flyer has a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 1024 x 600 pixel display, and runs Google Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.0 software. It’s available for pre-order for $499.99.

The tablet is already available in parts of Europe, where it ships with the digital pen and a much higher price tag.
