The HTC Flyer on Thursday got an official release date from Best Buy — eager customers can pick up the new 7-inch tablet in stores on May 22.

The Flyer, a single-core 1.5 GHz tablet with a stylus, weighs 14.8 ounces (.93 pounds) and has front and rear-facing cameras.

The tablet will cost $499, though the stylus, which is a unique feature of the tablet, may be sold separately for $80. (The product page on Best Buy’s site listing that price has disappeared.)

The stylus did ship with the pen in Britain, where it cost £599.99, or about $960.
