Whoever might have thought the 7 incher HTC Flyer would be a side player in the great tablet battle, against Samsung, Apple and LG is in for a shock! The Flyer tablet has already notched up orders of the tune of about a million units. This when the Taiwan based company is yet to reveal any specific launch schedule. In fact, we don’t even know for sure what the tablet is going to cost though early pointers indicate its going to be around $600, which if true will make the Flyer cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the 3G enabled iPad 2.
So while orders to the tune of a million units are definitely not something that can be ignored, what remains to be seen is whether there will be many more million orders that would make up the HTC Flyer story. And we all know, its only solid performance along with a viable eco-system that can let the Flyers win millions of hearts.
