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]
Sprint and Verizon have slashed pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, with both carriers now asking $199.99 for the 7-inch tablet. The extra discounting makes the CDMA networks the cheapest in the US for picking up the Galaxy Tab; T-Mobile USA is asking $249.99, while AT&T offers the Tab agreement-free for $549.99. The move could well be a push to clear out Galaxy Tab stock ahead of the new range of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets that are expected over the coming weeks and months. Samsung is yet to confirm whether the Galaxy Tab will get Honeycomb or remain on Android 2.2 Froyo as it launched with. That hasn't stopped the third-party hacking community from attempting to do what Samsung seems reluctant to attempt; xda-developers already have a rudimentary Honeycomb ROM for the CDMA version of the Galaxy Tab [via The Unlockr]. However it's still lacking in most of the day-to-day functionality most users would require.
