HTC EVO View 4G

HTC adds MyTouch 4G Slide and Evo View 4G to unlock tool

HTC won some major brownie point with the modder community when it released an official bootloader unlock tool this fall, though the selection of phones that could be unlocked was a bit small. Today the available devices expand by two, with the addition of T-Mobile's MyTouch 4G Slide and the Flyer's mobile broadband variant, the Evo View 4G. It's still a pretty small selection against HTC's entire lineup, but the more options, the better.

HTC Flyer Receives Honeycomb Upgrade [Leak]

Several weeks ago we were holding the HTC Flyer for the first time, a brand new tablet running a unique version of HTC's Sense user interface on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, all in a mid-sized tablet form factor with a special "Scribe" stylus for on-screen writing. We got to look at this device as the HTC Flyer (a Wi-fi version of the tablet) and the HTC EVO View, a WiMAX-capable black instead of white plastic casing version. Now what we've got coming down the underground pipeline is a Honeycomb upgrade for the full tablet experience!

HTC EVO View Hands-On and Unboxing

We've got our hands on a brand new EVO View tablet, aka the black version of the HTC Flyer we've already gotten a peek at - and it's got a black stylus as well! What you're going to see here is a very similar situation to that lovely white and silver tablet, this one with the same stylus situation, ability to draw on the screen, screenshots on a tap, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a lovely version of Sense over the top. HTC's got a winner here, I can tell already, the black makes the whole situation all the better.

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?
