HTC Flyer coming April, available to pre-order at Clove « Clove Technology’s Blog

While there are certainly tablets on the way that are more anticipated than the Flyer, HTC's 7" slate is coming nonetheless - and now we know when. It will launch "mid April," according to UK site Clove, which is now taking pre-orders for the tablet. Accessories that will be available for purchase along with your flyer include a spare digital stylus (£40), a Micro USB to HDMI cable (£24), and a car charger (£17).

Previous rumors suggested the stylus-toting tablet would set one back $600 in the US, and the £500 price point Clove has set totals out to £600 after VAT, so take what you will from that. For a single-core Android tablet running Gingerbread, we aren't convinced that this will be a huge hit for HTC, but at least we have word of a 10" Honeycomb tablet that will be arriving from the Taiwanese manufacturer later this year.

Will's typical, run-of-the-mill story is that of 'classically-trained actor turned Android smartphone and tablet writer.' If you catch him quoting Shakespeare, it's not because he misses it, but because he desperately wants his Masters in drama to count towards something.

    This is bound to flop. After Samsungs' debacle with their 7" version of the same thing (Non-Honeycomb, single core), it's obvious anyone who wants to buy a Non-Ipad tablet wants a dual-core honeycomb tablet for a better than iPad2 price of $500. Anything higher is bound to suffer sales wise.
