HTC EVO View 4G Back to Android 2.3 Gingerbread

We've been sent a message by HTC asking us to update our notes here about the HTC EVO View 4G. Apparently when we reported yesterday that Sprint's HTC EVO View 4G was to ship with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, they'd jumped the gun on their website, which is where the whole world looks for solid info. Now consider this: what does Gingerbread mean for the world of Android phones? HTC EVO View 4G will certainly be upgraded to Android 3.0 Honeycomb soon after it's released, but does this mean the Gingerbread wave is finally upon us?

What I speak of is of course a combination of the fact that Google doesn't release its source code all at once, instead choosing a hero device with which they can wow the world, then moving on to the lowly peasants who all get it at the same time. You're aware of the Nexus S, I'm sure, but did you know that there was another candidate in the Xperia PLAY?

Have a look at a story by the name of Playstation phone confirmed as former Gingerbread hero phone and consider this: with so few phones on the market this moment with Gingerbread and now both the Nexus S and Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY out there, does the HTC EVO View 4G with Gingerbread, again, show itself as a sign of the Gingpocalypse?

    I don’t believe any of these 7″ tabs will ever get Honeycomb officially. In this case the UI are so drastically different they would run into all sorts of issues. I believe this and the Galaxy Tabs will be stuck on Gingerbread….that is if the Galaxy Tab gets to Gingerbread.
