Price Of HTC Flyer Tablet PC Drops To £314

PC World has cut the price of the HTC Flyer from £479 to £314, a price that includes delivery and is achieved using the voucher code at checkout TABLET5.

The tablet comes with (opens in new tab) some impressive technology like a 1.5GHz single core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 7-inch 1024x600 pixel capacitive touchscreen and integrated stereo speakers with SRS WOW HD virtual surround sound.

The rest of the specification reads as follows; a built-in GPS antenna, a five megapixel rear camera and front faicng 1.3 megapixel one, Wi-Fi, HDMI connectivity, USB, microSD, G-sensor, digital compass and Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread.

The Taiwanese hardware manufacturer also added a few of its own unique features like a the HTC Sense user interface and a digital scribe pen called the HTC Scribe which allows users to write directly on the screen.

Why did HTC cut the price of the Flyer now? Well the abrupt exit of the TouchPad and the subsequent fire sale has caused others to follow suit, albeit on a smaller scale.

The Playbook and the XOOM for example have both dropped around their price by around a third so it is not surprising that HTC did the same.
