HTC Flyer hits US Cellular October 7 with unique pricing

HTC Flyer costs 399 to 599 based on data

US Cellular chose Thursday to committed to the launch for its version of the HTC Flyer, but with a unique price scheme. The seven-inch Android tablet will be rare in the US in having a European-style price based on the data plan. Buyers will pay as much as $600 if they get a lightweight $15, 200MB monthly plan, but stepping up to the $55 5GB plan drops the price down to $400.

Both plans don't need a contract. US Cellular hasn't said if it will sell the Flyer without a data plan.

The carrier's version of the Flyer primarily adds built-in EVDO-based 3G to HTC's core formula. Its centerpiece is a 1024x600 display that can take both multi-touch and stylus input from the optional Scribe pen. Everyone has access to a 1.5GHz, single-core Snapdragon processor, a rear five-megapixel camera, a front 1.3-megapixel camera, and 32GB of built-in space on top of the microSDHC card slot.

US Cellular's edition is the only other 3G-aware Flyer in the US outside of the Evo View 4G on Sprint, which costs the same despite the 4G but starts with a minimum $35 plan.
