HTC Android tablet priced up for Blighty's shoppers

HTC = Humungous Tablet Cost

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Smartphone maker HTC's entry into the media tablet arena, the Flyer, will arrive in the UK imminently, according to Carphone Warehouse.

The retailer has beguin taking advance orders for the fondleslab - though its website also says the Flyer has flown in and is in stock.

No surprise this - HTC UK is launching the tablet formally tomorrow, we hear.

Either way, it'll costs you £600, which strikes us a lot to ask for a 7in tablet that only runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Heck, you can buy the similarly specced Samsung Galaxy Tab for half that, if you shop around.

The Flyer's USP is its stylus - no longer a common feature of smartphones, let alone tablets. But HTC reckons whipping out the pen is more natural that prodding and stroking with your fingers. ®
