HTC Flyer ships in Europe on May 9

The HTC Flyer tablet will arrive in European stores on May 9, finally narrowing down the May release in pre-orders in the UK. What isn't yet known, however, is when the seven-inch Android device will be upgraded from Android 2.4 to the tablet-optimized Android 3.0 that competing devices are running on. As for pricing, earlier leaks for the UK had the unlocked 3G, 32GB version priced at a tax-inclusive 600, or the equivalent of $982.

In Germany, the same device cost a very similar 669 Euros ($904).

The Flyer otherwise gets a single-core, 1.5GHz Snapdragon chip, two cameras, a microSDHC memory card slot and a 4,000mAh battery.

A North American release for the Flyer shouldn't be too far behind the European one and will include both the Wi-Fi version at Best Buy and the Evo View 4G for Sprint.
