HTC Flyer now shipping in Europe

The 7-inch HTC Flyer Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) tablet is now on sale in Europe. The device is shipping in two models, one a 16GB Wi-Fi only and a 32GB Wi-Fi plus 3G version. The tablet is shipping with the Magic Pen, unlike Best Buy in the US, which will be selling the stylus as an $80 extra.

Although limited by running Android 2.3, when many other newly shipping tablets are equipped with Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), the tablet offers the ability work with a stylus as well as through capacitive touch input. Another potential drawback is that the tablet is shipping with a single-core Snapdragon processor, but it is clocked at a fast 1.5GHz.

It also ulitizes HTC's customized Sense 3.0 UI, while 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP provide connectivity. The included onboard memory is expandable through a microSD slot. The front 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.

The 16GB version of the HTC Flyer will soon be shipping in the States for $499.
