HTC EVO View 4G - the WiMAX-toting version of the HTC Flyer will indeed arrive running Android 3.0 Honeycomb out of the box. According to a mention on the Sprint "coming soon" page, the 7-inch slate has "Android 3.0 just for tablets." There's also "redesigned HTC Sense"; HTC plans to skin Honeycomb just as it has done with Gingerbread, so the UI of the Flyer won't resemble other Android 3.0 tablets like Motorola's XOOM. That includes the rotating 3D carousel homescreen and of course modifications to suit the Flyer's digital stylus. Previous rumors had suggested that Google might be blocking Android 2.x to 3.x upgrades for tablets, but HTC has since re-confirmed that it intends to release an update to Honeycomb for those early releases of the Flyer which arrive with Gingerbread. That could be any time in Q2, though there has been talk of the first units dropping this month. [via NetbookNews]

we reported that the HTC Flyer would be exclusive to Best Buy? Well that exclusivity isn't as exclusive as we were led to believe. Kinda. First there was Sprint selling a WiMax version of the Flyer known as the HTC Evo View 4G. And now, according to a few leaked T-Mobile Ads, the Flyer looks to be in the Get More network's product line and could be coming in the summer.
HTC EVO View 4G tablet today during their special event at CTIA 2011. The tablet appears to be the CDMA/WiMAX U.S. version of the HTC Flyer. We first caught a glimpse of the HTC Flyer back at MWC last month, however, that version wasn't quite ready for a hands-on. The HTC EVO View 4G, on the other hand, is ready for some action.
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:

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]
here. Whether the image of the Pyramid was a render, or a real image we will let you decide. Today we have something much more convincing that the HTC Pyramid is real, is on it's way, and looks beautiful. Check out this picture that was just leaked showing it next to its HTC Desire HD sibling.
incoming Android device expected to make its debut at CTIA 2011 next month. Two filings - here and here - lock down the name, though of course don't give us any further details about the device itself. It had been speculated that the EVO View 4G would be a tablet, perhaps even a CDMA version of the HTC Flyer, though there's no specific mention of tablets in the "goods and services" description. However, you could extrapolate from the "portable computers" section, perhaps, so the Flyer may still make a Sprint appearance. Most interesting, though, is the 4G element, with the device certain to have Sprint's WiMAX built in. Considering the HTC EVO 4G is nine months old and still retails for $199.99 with a new agreement, it's about time we had another potential flagship to take its place. [via Good and EVO]
