So I have been considering the HTC Flyer for a while because I was one few people that enjoyed the previous tablet/stylus era. But like everyone else I was pissed at the $80 stylus.

Today I was checking out the Best Buy website and I can't find the pen anymore. In fact the entire accessory tab is gone when you view the Flyer.

Maybe I am missing it, but I know I found it last week and now it seems to be gone. Do you think Best Buy/HTC actually listened to the public outcry and learned from the Xoom sales debacle and has decided to include the pen. (Or maybe they are just thinking about it, because the pen still isn't listed as being included either.)

Stylus NOT Included in BB Package
I too have been checking on the Flyer for several weeks, went ahead and prepurchased it and picked it up May 22. The HTC pen was not there, checked back with BB and all they could say was $69 and it's yours. Been playing with it for several hours and I may yet return it as I can not see the worth. I have the Dell Streak 7 that my son wants, is the Flyer worth the big $. 12 days to return or not?

Return it if you don't see the benefit of the pen. For the money there are a lot of other tablets out there in or below the price range without pen integration.

I personally would not keep the Flyer without the pen integration.

Pen back @ BB site
Here it is

So the pen is back up, and I must say I love the pen for writing, although school doesn't roll back up until June 6th I'm doodling more than I should be haha... I admit 80 USD is steep in my opinion and Expansys seems to be the best route right now...

Word is other N-trig pens will work that might be priced lower. I could be wrong and haven't tested this but, Supposedly the Fujitsu stylistic q550 pen will work. It's $29.99 at CDW part number FPCPN36AP. At least thats the part on the Q550 sales page for accessories. If this is the case, no more $80 pens.

I have a HTC stylus and another one given to me by my dad. If anyone wants it I will let it go for $50 plus $6 for shipping.
