Best Buy to Offer the HTC Flyer for Only $299


HTC Flyer is the first ever Android powered tablet manufactured by HTC and is a very good tablet. The only reason it doesn’t receive much attention is likely due to its price tag. The Wi-Fi version is available for 9 at BestBuy, which is a bit steep for a 7-Inch tablet. I admit that the HTC Flyer is a very nice piece of hardware and a lot of people are interested in it, but it still remains a tad out of budget. Well, guess what? I’ve got some good news for all those people who have been holding off their purchase of a HTC Flyer. BestBuy is planning to give the HTC Flyer a huge price cut, from 9 to 9. They say “good things come to those who wait,” and for those who’ve waited, you just saved yourselves 0.

From Oct. 1st, the HTC Flyer will be available for only 9, which I think is a very good move by BestBuy. Also, the Flyer will be receiving the Android 3.x update pretty soon, which makes this an even better purchase. The HTC flyer was also one of the recent tablets to receive unlocked bootloader support from HTC. I think this is going to be the best price you’ll see for the HTC Flyer so grab it while it’s hot. Let us know if you pick one up!

Growing Up Geek: Ben Drawbaugh

Welcome to Growing Up Geek, an ongoing feature where we take a look back at our youth and tell stories of growing up to be the nerds that we are. Today, we have our very own Contributing HD Editor, Ben Drawbaugh.

Unlike many adults I knew growing up, I don’t think being a kid is easy. Maybe it is for some, but growing up geek in the small hick town of Clewiston, Florida means you learn you’re a geek the hard way. This story of struggle turned out great, though, and now I wear that geek badge proudly as it’s no doubt the secret to my success in almost every facet of my life.

Welcome to You@YouTube: What do you want to know?

Today we’re kicking off a series of posts and videos around what it’s like working at YouTube. The goal is to show you what happens behind your screen, and will talk about things we think you might want to know about like job opportunities, interesting folks working and visiting here, projects we’re testing out, our gnome overlords and more.

I could write pages about working here—the amazing people I get to work with, the fun benefits, the transparent communication, and most importantly being part of company that’s working to change our world through video. But hearing about it from me alone won’t do it justice, so here’s a teaser from some of the YouTubers here at HQ on a new channel called Life at YouTube. This will give you an insider look at what life at YouTube is like, with videos ranging from the heartfelt to the ridiculous.

So over to you, fellow YouTubers. What would you like to hear about from inside YouTube? After all this is about you—I work here already.

Asus Eee PC 1025 treads a Cedar Trail through the FCC

Attracted by all that Cedar Trail gossip about 10-hour battery life and weeks of standby time? Then you’ll be pleased to see that Asus’s Eee PC 1025C and higher-end 1025CE models have received their nods from the FCC. Both pack the latest 32nm Atom processor under their 10.1-inch hoods, along with an HDMI-out, Kensington lock and flush trackpad. The CE additionally serves up a USB 3.0 port, 4x zoom on its webcam and a metallic finish. NetbookNews got some hands-on time with these babies at Computex and reported prices of 9 and 9 for the C and CE respectively — whet your appetite at the More Coverage link.

Virgin Mobile Officially Announces LG Optimus Slider, Launch Next Month


Recently we saw the LG Optimus Slider with Virgin Mobile branding on BestBuy’s website, and we told you that it would be out soon. Guess what? Today’s the day, but instead of BestBuy launching the device, it has debuted on Virgin Mobile and will hit their stores on Oct. 31 — or if you want it first — on their website Oct. 17. The Optimus Slider will be sold for 9.99 without contract, which is great for people looking for a decent handset sans the contract. It comes with a 3.2 inch touchscreen display, Android 2.3, 3.2 MP camera, Bluetooth 3.0 and it comes preloaded with Virgin Mobile Live 2.0 Social networking application.

Anyone out there planning to grab this later next month from Virgin Mobile? I am sure it’s a good device, especially for students/teenagers, because it’s cheap and comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, which is good for messaging. Tell us your thoughts in the comment box after the break.

Dell Launches Dell Streak Pro for Japanese Market


Dell offers a small line of Android phones consisting of phones like the Mini 3i, Aero and Venue. Now Dell has officially announced a new Android powered phone known as the Dell Streak Pro but unfortunately the device is only exclusive to Japan, where it will be launched by Softbank. Dell faced some disappointing sales in the US and European markets due to devices like Streak 5 and Streak 7, so now they are testing their luck in the Asian market and it may work out for them considering the Streak Pro is looking like a beast to me. The device is powerful enough to face any monster device like SGSII or Sensation, as it comes with a 1.5 GHz Dual-core Qualcomm processor, 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display with qHD resolution of 960×540, 8MP camera with a 1.3 MP front facing camera along with some other goodies under the hood.

Well, I am kind of sad that this device is only limited to Japan but I’m hoping it will also hit the U.S. and European markets eventually. Anyway, Japan is seeing a bunch of great devices as of late and it won’t be long until we start seeing our own batch of breakout devices. Would you guys like to get your hands on Japan’s latest offerings or is it all about the Nexus Prime for you? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
