HTC Flyer up for Best Buy orders April 25

Best Buy wrapped up Friday by detailing more of its launch plans for the HTC Flyer with Wi-Fi. Pre-orders will start on April 25 and will see the 16GB tablet cost $499. The release date was kept vague and only promised a release in the spring.

The Flyer is one of the few single-core tablets shipping this spring and has a 1.5GHz Snapdragon at its heart, but HTC has promised a unique angle through strong support for an included pen. Owners get apps to hand-draw notes and artwork without having to abandon more intuitive finger touch. The customized version of Sense UI can detect the difference between intentional finger presses and a palm resting on the screen while drawing.

Although it uses Android 2.3, Sense is heavily optimized for the seven-inch, 1024x600 display. HTC has also given it both a rear five-megapixel camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. Movie viewing is a side feature with HTC's own Watch movie store providing downloads.
