HTC EVO View 4G Android Tablet (Sprint): HTC Flyer Plus Released in June 24th, 2011, the HTC EVO View 4g came under Sprint flag. HTC said, “The EVO View 4G can do things most tablets can only dream of.” Great! But, is it true? I’m not going to answer this question. I just want to share my little note about the HTC EVO View 4G (Sprint), though this note might be containing an answer for such question. Notes on the HTC EVO View 4G (Sprint) First of all, in general, the EVO View 4G (Sprint) is a great 7-inch tablet with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and dual cameras (5-megapixels rear facing and 1.3-megapixels front-facing). If you have already known the HTC Flyer, you’ll find it quite similar to the HTC EVO View 4G (Sprint), regardless of 4G support and any others. Secondly, the HTC EVO View 4G (Sprint) is sized at 7.5 x 4.7 x 0.5 inches (196 x 112 x 13 mm) of dimension, and 12.8 ounces (425 g) of weight. It is the same dimension as that of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (Sprint) (7.5 x 4.7 x 0.5 inches), but a little heavier (13.6 ounces). I think, lighter is better. But if we talk of design, I personally prefer that of the HTC EVO View, especially the back side of it. I do like its dark gray aluminum with rubberized bumpers and its design. Thirdly, camera. In a nutshell, I just want to say, “Average.” Of course, it’s not bad. The 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and 5 megapixel rear facing camera are quite enough. However, I still maintain my opinion: average. Fourthly, the EVO View’s 7-inch (1024 x 600) display is great, really. Here, I agree with what HTC said, “The EVO View 4G can fit places most other tablets can't.” Fifthly, performance. Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with the latest version of HTC Sense, plus 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor means awesome! Indeed! It’s true that it would be better with dual core 1 GHz processor. But as a matter of fact, the 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon is great. Sixthly, battery life. It’s a long life battery, really. You can take into consideration the well known engadget.com’s test result of which they said, “Fantastic, and long enough, at that, to make us rethink our notions about 4G devices having middling endurance. Just to give you a day in the life, we left the house at about 7:30AM with a fully charged battery, and spent the ensuing 12 hours checking email and weather updates, glancing at Twitter and Facebook notifications, watching the occasional clip, and sinking an embarrassing amount of time into Angry Birds Rio.” Last but not least, the HTC EVO View 4G is equipped with a stylus (sold separately) using HTC Scribe Technology, combined with Evernote and Timemark. As HTC said, “…Evernote, a leading notes application and service, you'll have the ability to capture and make notes--on Web pages, e-books, PDF documents, and more--in an easy and natural way. … Timemark to capture the audio of a meeting at the same time as written notes.” Ok, for more information about the HTC EVO View 4G (Sprint), you can take the following details into consideration.
