T-Mobile to Sell HTC Flyer, Other Android Phones This Month
The HTC Flyer has been available exclusively on Best Buy since April this year, and the device is about to fly towards T-Mobile, too. According to the carrier’s “Coming soon to T-Mobile” page, the HTC Flyer will land on T-Mobile some time within this month, along with several other Android devices.
T-Mobile will most likely bundle the HTC Flyer with the network’s unlimited data connectivity plan, which the carrier just recently unveiled. No details of the pricing have been revealed yet.
The Android world and the tablets market have shown keen attention to the HTC Flyer because of one of its unique features: the HTC Scribe Digital Pen, a digital stylus meant to work with the Flyer’s capacitive touchscreen. (Android Authority has an earlier post containing more details and a review of the HTC Flyer.)
Best Buy sells the HTC Flyer bundled with the Scribe Digital Pen for US$500. The HTC Flyer is also coming to 3 UK for GBP25 (US$40) with a two-year contract that comes with up to 15 GB of data access.
The 7-inch tablet is said to be currently the fastest of its kind in the market because of its high-end hardware: 1.5-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile processor, 1 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, WSVGA capacitive touchscreen, and Wi-Fi/3G/Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity. Although the HTC Flyer comes packed with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it is possible that the Flyer will soon upgrade to Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the Android version optimized for 7-inch and 8.9-inch displays.
Apart from the HTC Flyer, T-Mobile also announced that several other Android devices are heading its way this July: Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, LG Optimus 3D, and HTC Sensation.
T-Mobile is surely bringing a lot of Android choices this month. Which of these is going to be your new Android device?
