HTC EVO View 4G Review

Welcome to a review of a tablet we essentially had a pretty good look at already, but have come to understand in a slightly better way now that it's got a new handsome color set on its outer bits. Head back to the review of the HTC Flyer EURO then see the review of the HTC Flyer WiFi for a full understanding of what we're about to deal with here, then behold the greatest color scheme of them all: black and red. The difference between those models and this one is the internet connection capabilities. While that, the difference in the colors of metal and plastic, and some app additions and subtractions may be the only changes between here and there, an epiphany of usefulness has come over your humble reviewer - have a look below to see how this is your note-taking champion and the bigger version of the EVO you've always wanted.

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

Perhaps it's Friday paranoia talking, but it does seem like the US carriers (and retailers, for that matter) want to kill the chances of every tablet other than the iPad. News that the "Scribe" active stylus for the HTC Flyer will be an $80 accessory for the WiFi-only version Best Buy will sell (and, presumably, the HTC EVO View 4G headed to Sprint) has whipped the rug out from under the tablet's stubby Android feet, making it either a very expensive - $580 for WiFi tablet and pen - proposition or merely a 7-inch slate not even running Honeycomb.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: April 7th, 2011

Welcome to Android Morning - that's where we are today. Of course, if you like, you could look at a few video games while you're at it, as we've been dipping our fingers into those circuits this morning as well. First let us speak of Google, a group that's just purchased a content farm - no, server space - no, how about almost half of a German solar power plant? Yes indeed! What'll you do next, Google, get involved at a government level? I hope so!

HTC EVO View 4G to hit Sprint with Honeycomb pre-loaded

HTC EVO View 4G to hit Sprint with Honeycomb pre-loaded

Sprint will release its version of the HTC Flyer, the HTC EVO View 4G announced at CTIA 2011 last month, running Android 3.0 Honeycomb out of the box, unlike the initial GSM units. While HTC showed the Flyer running a heavily modified version of Gingerbread at the slate's debut in February, and said that early units would run the smartphone OS until a Honeycomb update could be released, a minor mention on Sprint's "coming soon" page seemingly confirms it will get the tablet-centric OS from the off.

EVO View 4G Hands-On

EVO View 4G Hands-On

This year at CTIA 2011 we've gotten extremely close to the EVO View 4G. Like so close that we're basically married now. We saw this device earlier this year at Mobile World Congress 2011 as the HTC Flyer but we did not get to get nearly as close as we'd have liked, but then again, it wasn't quite ready for the spotlight in its then-unfinished form. Here we have a device that's much closer to what you'll be purchasing in the store - a competitively sized and functioning tablet that'll go in direct competition with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 we got the opportunity to check out earlier today.

The glasses-free dual-core Android smartphone and the WiMAX-enabled HTC Flyer each get a shiny new sign-up page for more release information.
