HTC reveals size of pricetag for HTC Flyer tablet

HTC may have gained a huge deal of publicity with its upcoming HTC Flyer tablet, the fact remains that consumers are still in the dark about certain details pertaining to the device. Granted, everybody knows that the Flyer will come equipped with a seven-inch capacitive touchscreen, a single-core Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1.5GHz and 32GB of NAND flash memory, but HTC has yet to reveal just how badly the Flyer will hurt one's wallet when the tablet is finally released for retail. And the good news is that consumers no longer have to wait for that information anymore.

According to our sources, the HTC Flyer is expected to retail for the handsome sum of US$669 (approx S$853), which makes it one of the more costlier tablets to enter the market in 2011. However, we should point out that the large pricetag was to be expected: after all, HTC had already confirmed in our previous article that the Flyer is not going to be an affordable tablet due to various features such as its design, processor and more importantly, the unique stylus which none of the competition has yet to offer.

However, it appears that there might be some good news in store for consumers who are planning to get their hands on a new Flyer when it officially reaches our shores. After all, most tablets are usually sold at a discounted price as part of a data subscription bundle, so here's hoping that whichever telco that manages to secure distribution rights for the device will be able to offer an attractive pricetag for the entire data bundle.
