Android Gingerbread HTC Flyer Commands Hefty Price at Carphone Warehouse

If you are in the market to pick up an Android tablet in the United Kingdom and have been thinking about snapping up the Android Gingerbread sporting HTC Flyer, it looks like you may have to dig deep into your pocket.

According to an article over on Pocket-lint, the HTC Flyer will be offered by the Carphone Warehouse and will command a higher price tag than the Apple iPad 2 and the Android 3.0 Honeycomb packing Motorola Xoom, coming in at a hefty £600.

We recently reported that the HTC Flyer tablet would also be offered by PC world and Dixons, but as yet they haven’t offered any pricing on the Android device, while the Clove does have the HTC Flyer up for pre-order at that same £600 price tag.

That 600 quid price tag seems a tad steep to me, but perhaps when other UK retailers offer the Android tablet it will get subsidised, otherwise I can’t see many handing over that price in today’s UK hard hitting economy, but I could be wrong.

As for an actual release date for the HTC Flyer, there still isn’t one other than sometime in May. So is anyone interested in picking up the Flyer at that hefty asking price?

    Priced way too high!!!

    HTC got my interest when they first announced the HTC Flyer. HOWEVER, my purchase will not take place unless the Flyer is ompetively priced with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7". I'd prefer the Flyer – but will only purchase it if it is somewhat competitively priced here in the USA – and soon. The Galaxy Tab WiFi is selling retail at $350 and is very close in specs to the Flyer. I cannot cost justify paying another wireless monthly contract in addition to my Samsung Fascinate phone. The WiFi only version is perfect for my needs.

    So HTC – your challenge is to bring the HTC Flyer to the USA and price it under $400.
