HTC Flyer Orders Touch One-Million Mark; $600 Tag Makes the Tablet Affordable than Samsung Galaxy Tab (Videos Inside)

March 8, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have been telling you about HTC’s Flyer tablet and the manner in which the device would place itself in a noteworthy position in the tablet horizon. Various manufacturers have been readying or have already introduced their tablet PCs, triggering a tablet war of sorts. HTC Flyer is one battle-ready device and the latest we hear hints at the popularity that it could command in the short term.

Demand seems to be one major driving force for the HTC Flyer, and from what we get to know, HTC has ordered one million units and these units are to be ready for August 2011.

Now, that indeed sounds awesome. The introductory order of one million units can augur well for HTC fans, as they are in for some amazing stuff coming their way.

Remember, HTC had earlier some time ago outed an ad (posted below) which rhymed words such as ‘everyone can make it their own’. The one million units ordered might make that possible.

The tablet, which would arrive with an around-$600 price tag, may be a worthy competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Tab in terms of affordability. As you know the Samsung Galaxy Tab comes for $650-$900.

Running Android 2.3 OS, the seven-inch HTC Flyer tablet is something that HTC wants ‘the whole family’ to own. With a resolution of 1024×600 pixels, the HTC Flyer would sporting the unique HTC Sense User Interface and will be spruced up with a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor from the Snapdragon family.

The Flyer will boast of 1 GB RAM and 32 GB storage space and that can be expanded using SD cards. A rear camera of 5 megapixel and a 1.3 MP front camera are something you would want to try the moment you lay your hands on the device. Further, the HTC Scribe technology will allow user to draw and write over web pages and photos.

The one-million order makes us believe this device will rule. An August release and the around-$600 price tag are what we are looking at now. Join us as we weigh the advantages of the device over the Samsung Galaxy Tab – and may be the Apple iPad 2 too.
