HTCs entry into the tablet space – the HTC Flyer – is now available to buy from Carphone Warehouse for £599.99. The Flyer first announced back at MWC2011 is similar in size to the Samsung Galaxy Tab (reviewed early February) – its a 7 inch capacitive touch-sensitive device with 1024 X 600 resolution screen, but packs a 1.5GHz processor 1GB Ram, 32GB Storage, and supports pen input via HTC Scribe.

I’d expect this price to drop soon as other retailers pick the Flyer up, plus there is a WiFi only model coming soon too. Also its currently only running Android Gingerbread (2.3) although an update to Honeycomb (3.0) has been promised, probably sometime this summer.
