HTC Says Early Flyer Sales Are Good


Despite the HTC Flyer not being an Android 3.0 tablet, HTC says early sales are doing quite good for themselves. The industry was worried that – due to pricing and no adoption of Google’s tablet-specific operating system – the Flyer wouldn’t take off. Despite fear-mongering from certain industry players, HTC believes that the tablet market is still young and there is still a ton of room for growth for any company not named “Apple”.

They also apparently mentioned wanting to do something with NFC in the future, but offered no details. We aren’t so surprised by that considering how major carriers in Europe and the United States are treating the technology – they want it to blow up (in a good way) and will lend their hand in helping that become a reality.

We can’t imagine competing OEMs aren’t thinking the same. HTC has plans to sell the HTC Flyer in the United States as the HTC EVO View 4G, and T-Mobile has also been rumored to carry the device. [Electronista]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I really think that they are either lying or their sales projections were set too low to begin with thus so far so good. As good as the device can be, I just think it is way too expensive.

  2.  The flyer is not for me…i need a 10.2″ tablet

  3. Give me 10″ Galaxy Tab :D
    (still love ya though HTC)

  4. Flyer = Business device/physical notebook replacement
    All other Android Tablets = 10″ Android smartphones with a slightly different OS that can’t make calls.

  5.  Im calling bullshit.

  6.  Its on sale? lol this needs to be $399 for a 32GB with the Magic Pen
