HTC Flyer gets unique capacitive pen,

The HTC Flyer Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) tablet has had its companion Digital Pen priced at Best Buy, for $80. Sold separately, the device joins a leather pouch ($35) specially designed to accommodate both the Flyer and the pen. Both the Digital Pen and the leather pouch can also be purchased in a bundle for $109. All the accessories are listed as shipping in 1-2 weeks.

The Digital Pen is supported by purpose designed apps that allow users to hand-draw notes and images. HTC's software can also detect the difference between a deliberate touch, and a user resting their palm on the screen to use the pen interface.

The HTC Flyer itself is also on pre-order at Best Buy for $499. It centers on a 7-inch capacitive 1024x600 touchscreen and is powered by a single-core, second generation 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It also incorporates HTC's customized Sense 3.0 UI. 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP provide connectivity.

Other specs include 16GB of onboard memory expandable through a microSD slot. The front-facing camera is 1.3-megapixels, while the rear is 5.0-megapixels. Codec support includes AAC, AMR, OGG, M4A, MP3, WMA, WAV, 3GP, 3G2, MP4, WMV, AVI and XVID.

Like its accessories, the Flyer should be shipping in 1-2 weeks. [via Android Central]

    Why can't the iPad's pens be sharp?

    Have you checked out Wacom's bamboo pen for the iPad? It looks like an overgrown kids Crayola wax marker. Can not imagine doing anything not looking like finger-painting with it. Besides it's not pressure sensitive, just contact / no contact.

    Apple should make the iPad 3 a valid tool for artists as well, and gain some traction from it's long forgotten content creator supporters. Certainly would pay a premium for a device for artists.

    Also, the pen would double as a natural input device, like on the Newton but with 21st century technology so it would not suck at handwriting recognition.
