The HTC Flyer will go on sale in Europe on May 9, HTC chief Florian Seiche confirmed today. The exec took the stage at the HTC Sensation event today and, just prior to the smartphone being unveiled, confirmed the release date for the 7-inch slate announced at MWC 2011 in February.

No official word on pricing, but in the past week we’ve seen the Flyer listed for £599.99 at online stores in the UK. Functionality includes the HTC Scribe stylus, a digital pen which can be used to annotate webpages and make handwritten notes to sync with Evernote.
