    HTC Flyer lands at Best Buy on May 22nd for $500, Magic Pen sold separately -- Engadget

    do they need more cash so urgently?

    Similar spec, put together with galaxy tab side by side in bestbuy

    $500 vs $350.

    I think HTC is insane

    I really like the idea of using the pen. But they are pricing this device at $500 WITHOUT PEN!!! ***? And I think the pen price is like $100+, i read it from engadget I think.

    Sorry but I will pass. I will wait for someone come out with under $400 7inch device with pen usable like Flyer.

    The pen is $80 by itself.

    The Flyer will come boxed *with* a pen if you buy it at any of the other retailers.

    It is only Best Buy that is trying to shaft the early purchasers by selling it full price *without* the pen included.

    Whether it is worth it or not, dunno. If you really like taking notes…

    The Flyer is the most over-hyped tablet since the Galaxy Tab. Android 2.x, really? And the thing looks even more like a giant phone than any of the other "me too" slabs. The only thing this has going for it is the pen input, which appeals to a certain niche but certainly won't be a grand slam with consumers.

    No thanks.

    Well, they are certainly looking for niche market. And I believe they said it will be upgraded to Honeycomb in the future.

    Didn't Veer is marketing for niche market? If there's people who wants very small smartphone, I am sure there's people who absolutely have to have pen input for tablet.

    I agreed though, it won't be grand slam with consumers, not because it comes with Android 2.x, but the price is just too high.

    What are they thinking? It is 7".

    For $399, you can have the 10" Asus Transformer that has an option to be a netbook.

    For the same price you can have the full-sized 10" iPad 2.

    It sounds like HTC hired the pricing guy Motorola used to set the Xoom at $599.

    The Flyer had ever spec it needed but one, price. At $299, it would have been a hit.

    Best Buy will never have to worry about this running out of stock either. Yet again, there will be another tablet failure.
