The Amazon Kindle Fire has started price war. Since its priced at $199, other similar tablets have to drop prices to stay afloat. Blackberry playbook has already dropped pricing starting at $300. Now HTC flyer is down to $299 from $499, a $200 price drop on Bestbuy. Here is how they compare:
|Processor||Dual Core 1GHz||1.5 GHz|
|Size||7 inches||7 inches|
Touch with IPS
|OS||Android (customised)||Android 2.3|
Overall the HTC Flyer looks like a better bet with GPS, 2 cameras, 16GB and expandable memory all fur just a $100 more. Besides it also has full fledged Android rather than restricted customised Android in the Fire.
Note: Both don’t have 3G. If you need 3G connectivity, look elsewhere.
