HTC Flyer and LG Optimus Pad on sale now at Carphone Warehouse

The first Android tablet challengers from HTC and LG are available now at Carphone Warehouse, as Google’s challenge to the iPad’s supremacy steps up a notch.

Carphone is selling the Flyer from £25 per month on 24-month contract deal, plus an upfront charge of £129.99.

The Optimus Pad is also available from £25 per month, with a headline charge of £299.99.

In case you’ve been living under a rock in the tech netherworld, the Flyer features a seven-inch LCD screen, a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

It’s also home to a rear mounted five-megapixel snapper, a secondary 1.3-megapixel camera at the front for video calling and stylus support for note-taking.

Somewhat disappointingly, however, it’ll only run Android 2.3 out the box – the version of Android devised for smartphones rather than the tablet optimised Honeycomb version.

The Optimus Pad by contrast packs Honeycomb from the get-go, an 8.9-inch screen, dual core Tegra 2 processor. It’s real USP though is 3D video playback and recording in HD via dual five-megapixel stereoscopic snappers mounted on the rear.
