Though Best Buy recently pulled their HTC Flyer from their online store, the “Now” network’s EVO View 4G – essentially the same device – has an Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) update available for download. It will be pushed to devices tomorrow, but can be easily downloaded and updated today. Honeycomb brings some much needed features to the EVO View 4G, and the most noticeable being the new “Notifications” menu.

Honeycomb is really the bridge from Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) to 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Features from both combine to make Google’s new OS, and only the strongest survived. My personal favorite is the new “Recent Applications” menu icon; if would have been a shame if it was left out.

EVO View 4G owners won’t look back on their previous OS, as Honeycomb is meant to be much more tablet friendly. For those of you wanting this update right now, navigate through “Settings > System Updates > HTC Software Update > Check Now” on your device; it should start right up. Those of you have gone through with the update, let us know if it requires a data wipe – that could really help out the community when preparing to update.

  1. I am in AZ time. I have been checking for the update and it was not available until 2:00 AM. Just a little after 2:00 AM, download is available and I started Downloading. More after the update completes

  2. I accepted the update almost two weeks ago and have had to hard reset
    twice in the last two weeks because my password screen keyboard is
    unresponsive, or does not appear. In addition, a few other things I
    don’t care fore is the loss of the screen carousel, and the screen real
    estate. I wish I could go back to GB 🙁
