Sprint’s HTC EVO View 4G could land on June 24th — the same day the EVO 3D is set to make its debut — according to an advertisement obtained by Engadget. The 7-inch tablet is nearly identical to the HTC Flyer we recently reviewed, save for its 4G WiMAX radio. It packs a 1.5GHz processor, HTC’s Sense user interface, a 1.3-megapixel forward facing camera, 32GB of storage, 3G/4G hotspot capabilities, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 4,000 mAh battery in a sturdy aluminum uni-body package. If you want to push the tablet’s capabilities a bit further and take advantage of the View 4G’s HTC Scribe feature, which allows you to take notes on the display, you’ll need to drop an additional $80 for a special stylus. Sprint has yet to reveal pricing for the EVO View 4G, but the Wi-Fi-only Flyer goes for $499.99 without a contract, so we expect to see it priced somewhere below that when purchased with a contract.

We already brought you a photo-centric hands-on of Sprint’s brand-spankin-new HTC EVO View 4G tablet, but we thought we would get a little closer to the sexy slab with a hands-on video. The 7-inch tablet reminds us a bit of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, however the View 4G does run Google’s Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) mobile operating system. HTC also added its solid Sense user interface to the View that makes the whole experience a bit more enjoyable — the 1.5GHz processor purring under the hood helps too. Throw in an innovative stylus, the HTC Scribe, and you have a pretty compelling package. Hit the jump for a video walk-through of the hardware and UI.
HTC announced the HTC Flyer last month during MWC in Barcelona, and now Sprint announced it will launch a version of its own in the U.S. called the EVO View 4G. We had some time to check out the tablet first-hand during the CTIA Wireless show on Tuesday, and have a few hands-on thoughts to bring you. For one, the Flyer feels sturdy and well built; more so than the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. You can think of it as an over-sized and heavier EVO 4G, but with a little more processing power. Its screen is bright and easy to view, but it did appear to attract a lot of fingerprints. Read on for some of our initial impressions from our hands-on time with the EVO View 4G and definitely check out our photo gallery!
On Tuesday at the CTIA Wireless tradeshow in Orlando, Florida, Sprint announced that it will carry a 4G WiMAX version of the HTC Flyer tablet, dubbed the EVO View 4G. The EVO View 4G has a 7-inch 1024 x 600-pixel capacitive touchscreen display, an aluminum uni-body design and a 4,000 mAh battery. It comes with a few unique software features developed by HTC, including HTC Scribe — a note taking application that can be used with an optional pen — and HTC’s Sense user interface on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Other features include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling, an HDMI-out port and DLNA support for wireless sharing of multimedia content to other DLNA-certified devices. Sprint has not yet provided launch details or pricing for the EVO View 4G. Hit the jump for the full press release and stay tuned for our hands-on. More →
U.S. wireless carrier Sprint was noticeably absent from both CES and MWC, but if this latest rumor comes to fruition, we think we know why. According to Engadget, the nation’s third largest wireless carrier plans to unveil no less than three high-end devices at CTIA Wireless in Orlando this month. What’s on the menu? The Samsung Nexus S 4G, a standard Nexus S with a WiMAX radio; the EVO 3D, HTC’s spin on the very successful EVO 4G with a 3D screen; and the EVO View, a CDMA version of the HTC Flyer tablet. The rumor is backed up by several Wi-Fi alliance filings from Samsung and HTC, but no concrete evidence has surfaced just yet. The CTIA Wireless conference runs from March 22nd to the 24th, and we’re sure as we get closer to that date, more information will make itself available. More →
