The news comes from one of Three’s catalogues, which clearly lists the deal despite it currently not being visible online. While the package might sound tempting, there’s no word on whether it includes the smartpen which HTC has touted as such a major feature. Yesterday it said it would be charging £47.99 for the accessory to those who want the Flyer SIM-free.

There’s no denying that this deal is decent value, but the question is whether the HTC Flyer is really worth nabbing when a slew of Android Honeycomb-loaded tabs are about to flood the market.

Are you planning on buying a Flyer? Or does HTC’s lack of bleeding edge Android software put you off? Let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
