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.
