Three offers HTC Flyer on contract

It has been priced for the SIM-free market, but so far, none of the networks have priced up the HTC Flyer for contract. Until now that is.

The Three network is first out of the blocks, confirming pricing ahead of the UK launch. That launch date was supposed to have been 9 May, but it seems to have slipped once more. It's soon though, very soon. When it does land, nip down to your local Three store if £25 per month and £169 upfront sounds good. But note that the deal is over two years, which is a long time in the world of mobile devices. The SIM-free price of just under £500 (from various online sellers) might be more your thing if you like to upgrade more regularly. That deal includes 15GB of data a month, which is certainly a generous allowance.

As you might already know, the HTC Flyer offers seven inches of screen space, as well as the option to use as a digital notebook with a stylus. There's also a video download service called HTC Watch, which should eat into that 15GB allowance quite significantly, as well as a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, up to 32GB of storage, a five-megapixel camera for snaps, a 1.3-megapixel camera for video calling and all the connectivity you would expect of a modern day mobile device. Only Android Gingerbread for the OS though – here's hoping for a Honeycomb update sometime soon.

Go see Three if you want the deal, they are likely to be taking pre-orders instore as well as online. Check out our hands-on preview here.
