“HTC EVO View 4G” trademark spotted; might not be a tablet after all
When we recently wrote about a possible device by the name of HTC EVO View making its debut at CTIA, we believed it would turn out to be the HTC Flyer tablet with a couple of bells and whistles added to it by Sprint. On the other hand, a couple of filings for the HTC EVO View 4G trademark have been submitted by the Taiwanese manufacturer not long ago and are making us think twice about what the handheld may exactly be.

After reading both submissions we found out that neither of them mentions the mysterious HTC EVO View 4G to be a tablet at all. Going through the filing for the HTC Flyer clearly defines the device to be a tablet while the EVO View 4G is classified as a portable computer for some reason. Still, this isn't enough of an evidence to entirely write out the possibility of seeing a tweaked HTC Flyer at CTIA after all. Hold on tight as we will know for sure in two weeks' time.

How knows, the Evo View 4G could actually be a WP7 device.

That's always possible, but highly unlikely. I think the marketing folks at Sprint are sharp enough not to confuse the brand identity of the Evo line by offering both Android and WP7 phones under that name.

Question is, is this the successor to the HTC EVO or the HTC Shift?
Honestly, I think it's going to look similar to the HTC Shift while sporting Android. Which I think is going to be a terrible idea.

Not sure what you mean by this. The EVO View is rumored to be a tablet, not a phone. Did you even read the article?

the only reason to buy this is because it supports wimax, made by HTC (Best Manufacture), Portable, Capacitive Stylus, and the 1.5 Ghz Processor :) . the bad is it will run 2.3 gingerbread but will be updated to 3.0, weak battery, and its expensive.
