Best Buy now bundling free Scribe pen with Flyer

Best Buy has now begun bundling the HTC Scribe pen accessory for the HTC Flyer without a premium. Initially, the pen was sold separately for $80 and now it's included in the 16GB Wi-Fi tablet's $500 price tag. Other markets, such as Europe, included the pen with the tablet from the start, though the overall average price was higher.

No reason for the freebie is given, though it may have something to do with the tablet's sales record and the maker's and retailer's attempts to jumpstart it. Whether this is a limited-time promotion isn't known, but unlikely.

The Flyer has a 7-inch touchscreen and the pen allows users to take handwritten notes or navigate quickly through the menus. There is otherwise Android 2.3 onboard, Bluetooth 3.0. and both front- and rear-facing cameras. HTC Sense is overlaid the Android software to optimize it for the larger screen.
