Unfortunately, you won't get any £50 free gift voucher, as is the case at Currys. This is by far the cheapest 3G tablet on the market, and the fact that you can add a 32GB microSD card for around £24 to double the onboard capacity to 64GB makes it a superb deal.

In comparison, Apple sells the 64GB iPad 2 3G for a jawdropping £659, two-and-a-half times the price of this device.

The Flyer runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but Android's next iteration, Ice Cream Sandwich, has already been confirmed for the tablet.

Even if it doesn't make calls like the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the HTC Flyer 3G can be configured to run on VoIP clients such as Skype or VoIPBuster to make and receive voice calls.
