Conclusion: What you've got here is a note-taking machine. You're able to use the Notes app in so many different ways that we're surprised an iteration of this device hasn't been called the HTC Scribbler.
Conclusion: The HTC EVO View 4G for Sprint adds a fast 4G connection to the HTC Flyer, an already capable tablet with excellent pen input options. But unless you really want the pen experience, Android tablets running Google's Honeycomb OS are a better choice.
Pros: Fast 4G coverage. Sleek, classy design. Solid performance. Clear, bright screen. Excellent pen input. Sense UI improves on Gingerbread OS. HTC's extra apps are solid.
Cons: Sprint's 4G coverage is still spotty. Outdated, non-tablet-specific version of Android. Google Talk video chat isn't supported in Gingerbread. Slow browser performance. Cluttered default layout. Cameras are only mediocre.
Excerpt: What is being reviewed? Today I will be reviewing the HTC EVO View 4G on Sprint, which is the 3G/4G capable tablet of the WiFi-only HTC Flyer. The EVO View 4G is identical to the Flyer, except it comes with 3G/4G support on Sprint’s WiMAX network. As a disclaimer, it is necessary to know that
Excerpt: Today I will be reviewing the HTC EVO View 4G on Sprint, which is the 3G/4G capable tablet of the WiFi-only HTC Flyer. The EVO View 4G is identical to the Flyer, except it comes with 3G/4G support on Sprint’s WiMAX network.
Excerpt: The EVO View 4G is a version of the Flyer made for Sprint. In that sense, it dumps the GSM radio for the CDMA one, while also adding WiMAX connectivity. Rest of the specs remain the same and include things like two cameras (5-megapixel on the back and 1.3-megapixel on the front), 1.5GHz single-core...
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: HTC EVO View 4G is Sprint’s first 4G Android tablet shipping with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and not 3.0 Honeycomb. Nonetheless the 7 inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen display tablet packs 1.5GHz processor, 5.0 megapixel auto-focus camera with HD-capable video camcorder and a forward-facing 1.3 megapixel...
Pros: Great materials and design, High-quality display, Battery life is more than adequate, Sense 3.0 almost makes up for the lack of Android 3.0, HTC Scribe is a cool feature, WiMAX support
Cons: No Honeycomb yet, Lackluster camera performance, Scribe pen is yet another accessory to carry around
Conclusion: The HTC EVO View 4G on Sprint is a nice, small tablet. For some, it could be the ideal tool for their use case. For others, it will be too small, or too heavy, or not running the right version of Android.
Conclusion: We'll reiterate what we said in our HTC Flyer review. Is it an oversized phone (minus voice) or a really cool tablet? The HTC Flyer is both. It runs the phone version of Android OS and honestly looks like some of HTC's higher end Android smartphones, just bigger.
