Poll - Will You Pay the $600 Best Buy Price for the HTC Flyer?
So at this point it is official and Best Buy will be charging extra for the digital stylus, which will push the price beyond $600 including tax and shipping. So are you willing to pay this price for the HTC Flyer? Letís hear the forumís opinion.
My Vote is No.

I'm toying with the idea of buying a Fujitsu Lifebook T580 stylus to see if it works with the Flyer. Fujitsu sells it for like $22, and reportedly it uses the same N-Trig DuoSense technology as the Flyer. I'm a little hung up on the fact that it appears to only have one button instead of two, so I may not do it.
I'm still on the fence as to whether to abandon my pre-order and spend the $50 gift card on a video game or something.

According to BB for Business, Superior Communications makes the Flyer Scribe pen. Superior Communications site has this description w/sku:
37034BBR - Scribe Stylus Pen, Silver, Includes One AAAA Battery, HTC Branded
o Digital pen to ink on photos, notes and screen captures
o Allows you to share favorites with your social networks
o Allows for maximum use of your HTC tablet
1. Refer to manufacturer instructions for proper use.
Isn't an OEM an original equipment manufacturer? I always thought OEM products (software, etcetera) are packaged with the main item. Am I incorrect?

So, I'm uncertain as to whether I'd pay additionally for the Flyer AND Scribe pen . . . I think I'll wait to see what's in the Flyer box . . . Perhaps BB will have a Flyer instore that I can experiment with prior to opening my own box.
Why is only BB for Business selling the pen? Could it be that the Flyer's marketers think only business users will use the pen? If so, it's a very wrong marketing assumption. As a college professor of writing, I would have a huge use for the pen.
And just maybe someone else will also sell the pen. I would very much prefer to purchase the pen somewhere other than BB; options are always better than nonchoices (is that a word?). Competition tends to lower prices . . .

lucky for me i dont have that prob, im buying from a danish internet store and it will come with the pen, really cant see why BB dont sell the pen in the box also, and i thing 80 dollars for the pen is way out of line, but in the end i would probably have bought it anyway, if it wasnt in the box tho...

I look forwrd to it as well, but I had to cancel mine as well since I won't know if I will be here or in another country
And VZWRocks, aong with reasons stated above, I also said AT THIS POINT it is COMPARABLE
HTC already said HC is coming, and I haven't seen where they don't deliver on their promise on things like that
