As expected, Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for the HTC Flyer Android tablet. I heard anecdotal evidence that some customers had placed pre-orders for the tablet last week, but the order page didn’t officially go live on the Best Buy web site until this weekend.
Best Buy is charging $499.99 for the tablet and estimates that it should arrive after May 22nd.
The HTC Flyer features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragton processor, 16GB of storage, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a microSD card slot.
The tablet runs Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense software on top.
While the HTC Flyer has a capacitive touchscreen display and responds to fingertip input, the tablet also supports pen input with the included stylus and features special software called HTC Scribe which lets you draw notes in many apps, or use stylus gestures for navigation.
