HTC Flyer sees price drop to $299 Best Buy has dropped the price of the HTC Flyer to $299 from its launch price of $499, effective tomorrow.
While the tablet was popular for the 7-inch demographic, it was clearly overpriced considering the market leader iPad 2, at 9.7-inches, sells for the same price.

The Flyer runs on Android 2.3.3 (upgradeable to Honeycomb eventually), has a 1.5 GHz single-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, a 5MP camera and a 1.3MP front-side camera.

Additionally, the tablet has a Sense 3.0 UI and a special stylus for easier typing.

The price cut is likely due to the launch of the Amazon Kindle Fire, which will retail for $199 and is expected to quickly become the leader in the 7-inch space.
