Production process said to be delayed

HTC's Flyer tablet is allegedly set to arrive in small volumes for US customers as early as late March or early April, sources have told DigiTimes. Taiwan-based touchscreen suppliers suggest limited numbers of displays will start to be produced in March, while larger volumes are expected to begin production in May.

The company reportedly encountered difficulties with its initial production processes for the upcoming tablet, leaving mass production to be delayed for over a month. The sources did not cite a specific reason for the production problems.

HTC initially promised the Flyer to launch in April for UK customers, while Best Buy confirmed plans to launch a Wi-Fi edition but declined to commit to a time frame for availability. The device is also being reworked in the US market as the Evo View 4G, which supports WiMAX connectivity from Sprint, though it remains unclear if the latest information is referring to both devices.
