HTC Flyer’s digitizer pen may be a $80 accessory

flyerpen - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

The HTC Flyer is an upcoming Android tablet that stands out by having a much more advanced pen support than the capacitive styli you’re normally stuck with on tablets. The active digitizer pen is likely to have more in common with a pen tablet than a stylus, which means it’ll be very accurate. Now it seems that the pen may actually be a $80 accessory rather than an included accessory, as Best Buy lists it as such. This also fits the description for the Flyer on a Norwegian webshop, which lists only battery and “cables” as included accessories. It may just be a spare pen that’s listed though, but at $80 it’s a rather expensive replacement pen- suggesting that there’s quite a bit of tech in the pen itself. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
