HTC Flyer UK release date officially set as May 9th

Flyer tablet to launch within a matter of weeks

HTC has officially confirmed that its first attempt at a tablet device, the HTC Flyer, will hit stores across Europe on May 9th.

Revealed just days after the 7-inch Flyer appeared for pre-order via the Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy with a hefty £599.99 price tag, HTC’s Florient Seiche has announced the tablet device will hit the UK within a matter of weeks.

Sporting a 7-inch form factor and 1.2GHz single core processor, the Flyer’s innards are to be boosted by the inclusion of 32GB of internal storage, full Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities and Google’s Android 2.4 operating system capable of supporting Adobe Flash 10.2 video content. The attempted iPad rival will also land with a 5-megapixel rear mounted camera, 1.3-meg forward-facing snapper and the HTC Scribe Pen stylus.

Confirming the Flyer’s release date at yesterday’s HTC London event the company went on to unveil its new flagship smartphone, a 4-3-inch, 1.2GHz dual-core processor touting device to be known as the HTC Sensation. Featuring a new 3.0 version of HTC’s Sense UI the Sensation will launch next month with an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p Full-HD video recording.

Will the Flyer be able to challenge the iPad atop the tablet market? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
