High flyer

If the silver lining has a cloud, then it’s the price. At £599, the 32GB Wi-Fi/3G version is £20 more than the equivalent Apple iPad, which itself is hardly a bargain. The 16GB Wi-Fi model at £480 is £100 more than the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, and that has a 10.1in screen. Gulp.

HTC Flyer

A quality performer with a price to match

Verdict

In a nutshell, very good but very expensive sums up the Flyer. HTC clearly thinks it can now charge a premium for its devices and adapter cables – a policy I take issue with no matter what the brand or logo. Still, if you have the money you won’t be disappointed. If you don’t have the money wait for a few months until the 10in HTC Puccini tablet arrives – I’m betting the price of the Flyer will float gently earthwards then. ®
