Best Buy UK slashes price of HTC Flyer, making room for HTC Puccini?

The HTC Flyer may not be running Honeycomb or have a dual-core processor, but it’s certainly one of the most unique Android tablets currently on the market.  The only real flaw we found with the HTC Flyer was its price. In the US the WiFi HTC Flyer is priced at $499. Prices in Europe were even more ridiculous. But if the price was the only thing keeping you away, we have some good news.  Best Buy UK has dropped the price of the Flyer from £480 to £329 (that’s roughly a $245 price drop).

We don’t know why Best Buy has decided to slash the price of HTC’s first Android tablet, but we have a feeling Best Buy and HTC are trying to shed some extra inventory before the launch of the HTC Puccini, which could launch with the original price of the HTC Flyer.

There’s currently no indication that the price of the HTC Flyer will be reduced here in the US, but would any of you buy the HTC Flyer if Best Buy dropped the price by $100-$150 dollars?
