Amazon’s Kindle Fire certainly lit one underneath the tablet market. Tablets everywhere are thinking about dropping down in price now to try and push more units and the HTC Flyer seems to be one of the first. It was rumored that the price would drop but the 7 inch tablet running Android 2.3 Gingerbread can now be ordered off Best Buy’s page and you can probably badger an in-store employee to get one for that price as well.

The good news is a Honeycomb update is in the works and we have even seen a couple of unofficial leaks for it in the past weeks. That should certainly make this a little more appealing option. Or if you don’t want to wait for HTC, you can always update it yourself.
