Along with the official announcement of the HTC EVO 3D handset, Sprint has just gone live with another – the HTC EVO View 4G, which is Sprint’s version of the HTC Flyer tablet that we’ve told you about before.
The EVO View 4G will be a 7-inch device, and will be available to buy sometime this Summer, again no solid date as with the HTC EVO 3D. The specs are fairly interesting though, and the device will certainly pose a question as to whether or not it can compete with the likes of the iPad 2, Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1.
We say this, as the HTC EVO View 4G won’t possess a dual-core processor like the tablets we mentioned above. Instead it will come with a super speedy 1.5Ghz processor, which will obviously make this the fastest single core tablet on the market. Other specs include a 5 megapixel rear camera coupled with a 1.3MP front camera for video chats.
You’ll also get 1GB of RAM, 4G support via Sprint’s WiMAX network, 32GB built-in memory and support for more via MicroSD, and also HTC’s new Scribe technology using the included stylus pen. No mention about which version of Android this will be running yet though. The pictures appear to show Froyo, but we’re guessing HTC will be put under a lot of pressure to have this running Gingerbread by the time Summer approaches.
What are your thoughts on the HTC EVO View 4G? Is it a good enough tablet for you, compared with the dual-core competition that has already been announced? We’re looking forward to seeing just how quick this 1.5Ghz processor is. Stay tuned for further analysis. You can view the official press release from Sprint here.
