HTC EVO View 4G, the CDMA/WiMAX version of the HTC Flyer revealed last month. Described by CEO Dan Hesse as "not faux-g, 4G", the tablet will have a 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, 1.5GHz single-core Snapdragon processor and front and rear cameras (5-megapixels on the back, 1.3-megapixels on the front). There's also a mobile hotspot app that will be able to share the tablet's 4G connection with up to eight WiFi-connected devices, for an extra $29.99 per month on top of your voice and data package, along with DLNA support for streaming media to nearby HDTVs and other devices. On top of Android 2.4 Gingerbread is HTC's Sense UI, complete with integration with Evernote so that the EVO View 4G's digital stylus can be used to take handwritten notes and sync them into the cloud. The HTC EVO View 4G will be one of 22 4G devices Sprint is promising to have in its line-up by this summer. The carrier is yet to confirm pricing, but the tablet will arrive this summer with 32GB of storage. [gallery] HTC EVO View 4G fact sheet:

Pyramid in its box ahead of the Android 2.4 Gingerbread smartphone's official debut at CTIA 2011 this week; first we saw the back, with the unibody-style chassis and 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and now it's the front that's been spotted. Up close to an HTC Desire HD in GSMArena's picture, the Pyramid appears to have a higher-resolution display, going by the narrower menu bar. That would fit in with rumors of a qHD display, like the Motorola ATRIX 4G, running at 960 x 540 rather than the more common WVGA 800 x 480. We've been asking for higher-resolution Android devices for ages now, so if so this could be a welcome change from HTC. Inside we're expecting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM and the usual bevy of connectivity, along with the latest version of Sense. [via SlashGear]
HTC EVO View 4G tablet and HTC EVO 3D smartphone have been previewed on the company's own site, with a little promotional URL fiddling revealing pre-interest pages for both devices. No official specifications have been given, but we already know plenty about these two models. The HTC EVO View 4G is Sprint's version of the HTC Flyer, with a 1.5GHz single-core processor, 7-inch display and a special active stylus for handwriting recognition. It will also include 4G WiMAX connectivity, and has a new black casing rather than the GSM version's white finish. As for the HTC EVO 3D, that's expected to have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and be capable of showing 3D images on a glasses-free display. Full specs here. [via Engadget]
incoming Sidekick 4G, the first handset in the popular messaging line to use Android as its OS. The T-Mobile Sidekick 4G will be priced at $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate on a qualifying plan with unlimited data, assuming you're content with a two-year agreement. Alternatively, T-Mobile will be offering the slider smartphone for $149.99 with a qualifying plan including data (such as the Web – 200MB plan) on a two-year agreement. Handy for those who don't expect to use so much data during the lifetime of the device, but a little more expensive up-front. We'll be checking out the Sidekick 4G at CTIA 2011 this week, to see how well it follows in the footsteps of its popular predecessors. No word on exact release dates at this stage.

T-Mobile G-Slate by LG, which will drop at $529.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. A two-year voice and data plan will be mandatory to get that subsidized price on the 8.9-inch slate, however. That's unlike the other Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet we've seen, the Motorola XOOM, which only requires a data plan. Still, the G-Slate can record 3D HD video using its dual camera array, and will come with Need for Speed SHIFT HD and other apps preloaded. No official word on the exact release date, but last we heard T-Mobile was readying the G-Slate for a debut on April 20. We'll be checking it - and the G2x - out at CTIA this week. Press Release:
T-Mobile G-Slate with Google by LG: Powered by Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), the G-Slate delivers a premium mobile entertainment experience with a brilliant 8.9-inch, 3D-capable, multitouch HD display and the ability to record 3D and full HD video. With the new G-Slate, customers can access their favorite TV shows, magazines, games and more with pre-installed applications such as T-Mobile TV, Need for Speed SHIFT HD and Zinio eReader. The T-Mobile G-Slate will cost $529.99 after $100 mail-in-rebate card with a qualifying mobile broadband plan on two-year agreement, voice line and enrollment in EasyPay.
