HTC applies for ‘EVO View 4G’ trademark; confirms WiMAX Flyer tablet for Sprint?

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s rumor — which claimed Sprint would be unveiling a trio of high-end devices at CTIA — Taiwanese electronics manufacturer HTC has applied for a trademark patent on the name “EVO View 4G.” The name has been thrown around over the past few days, and it is wildly assumed that the device is Sprint’s iteration of the HTC Flyer tablet with a WiMAX radio. CTIA is just a few short weeks away, so if you’re a Sprint customer craving a high-end tablet, you’re going to have some choices to make. Do you go for the stylus-toting, single-core, Android 2.4 View 4G, or do you wait for a dual-core device rocking Honeycomb? More →

Google TV updated with Netflix, dual view, and voice enabled Android app

Things have been fairly quiet in Google TV-land since the service launched back in October, that is until today. Google has announced an automatic, over-the-air update being pushed out to GTV owners. The update includes: an updated Netflix app with more streaming titles and the ability to add DVDs to your mailing queue, an enhanced “dual view” that will allow a movable, re-sizable picture-in-picture window to be displayed, a voice-actions enabled remote control application for Android smartphones, and more movie sources. The company reports that users should begin seeing this update roll out to their devices “throughout the week,” and that the Google TV Remote app is “available today” but “all features may not work until your device has received the update.” Hit the jump to see a quick video demo of the mobile app. More →

HTC Merge appears, disappears from Verizon’s website

If you’re a Verizon Wireless customer with an affinity for QWERTY-keyboards, Android, and HTC, listen up. The HTC Merge, an Android 2.2 handset that is anything but a secret, briefly appeared on Big Red’s website today. The 360-degree view module, which is a treatment all Verizon phones get, was briefly live on the company’s website. The gang over a Android Central managed to grab a video of the hot little number before it was vanquished back into obscurity.

Facebook updates photos; high resolution images, new viewer, easier uploads

Social networking site Facebook has updated their site’s ability to store high resolution photos as well as view, tag, and upload images. The improvements will allow users to upload high resolution candids that are 2048 pixels on the largest edge; previously 720 pixels was the limit. The site will also launch a new photo viewer that opens over the main Facebook page; allowing users to browse whole albums without having to jump to a new page. “With our new uploader, you will be able to tag multiple photos in the same album all at once, as well as tag photos of the same person with a lot less effort,” writes Facebook. The new, improved uploader will be Flash based. According to Facebook, the high resolution photo uploads are available today (although not for us) and the other new features should be rolling out shortly. More →
