HTC EVO View 4G gets updated to Honeycomb
It is official, folks! The HTC EVO View 4G is finally getting a taste of Honeycomb, and an OTA software update is about to go live in the forthcoming hours. The 217 megabyte update brings the tablet's Android version to 3.2.1 and brings a number of improvements and fixes along the way.

The HTC EVO View 4G is, of course, Sprint's version of the HTC Flyer – a 7-inch Android tablet that the carrier launched back in June. Currently, its price is hovering close to the $200 mark, with the potential to go lower, so once its Honeycomb update is out, grabbing one might not be such a bad deal after all.
