HTC Flyer available from Carphone Warehouse

Mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse has opened up pre-ordering of the very first tablet from HTC, where the Android based Flyer will cost £599.99 SIM free and unlocked.

The HTC Flyer has a 7-inch 1024x600 TFT touch screen, with a 1.5GHz processor and a 5 megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage and runs from Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 with the HTC Sense v2.1 overlay to that very OS.

HTC's Flyer also has a stylus that can be used on the touch screen, in a feature known as HTC Scribe, which allows for writing to take place on the display for note taking and the editing of pictures too.

Three announced around the time the HTC tablet was launched at Mobile World Congress they will be carrying the Flyer, although no prices have been unveiled or tariff details yet. To date, they are the only network to make public their intentions on supporting the device.

One Mobile Ring has recently taken delivery of the Flyer, where we've produced an initial thoughts review from the contributors of OMR here, along with publishing a hands-on walkthrough in pictures here and a video from MWC here.
