HTC Flyer hits US Cellular October 7 with unique pricing

updated 08:20 pm EDT, Thu October 6, 2011

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.
