Presales of the HTC Flyer start today at Best Buy, according to a press release from the retailer. It will retail for $499, the same price as the 16 GB WiFi iPad 2.

The WiFi version of the tablet is exclusive to Best Buy, though a Sprint WiMax version is expected this summer as the HTC EVO View. The Flyer is a single-core,16GB, seven-inch tablet, that has a stylus using HTC Scribe technology.

It also integrates with the popular note-taking app Evernote.

As of 10 a.m. Monday morning, Best Buy’s site for the Flyer still said to “check back soon” for information on the tablet.

Will you consider buying the Flyer? Or do you have your eye on something else?
