HTC EVO View 4G Unboxing and Hands-on

HTC EVO View 4G Unboxing and Hands-on
A few weeks ago we took a look at the Wi-Fi only HTC Flyer, but today we present to you the HTC EVO View 4G, the Wi-Max variant that will be available in Sprint stores starting on June 24th.  Despite the name change, the two devices are nearly identical with a few major differences.  For starters, the EVO View 4G has a different black and red color scheme that keeps it in line with the rest of the EVO family of devices.  More importantly it brings cellular data into the mix with support for Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks.

The HTC  EVO View 4G is a 7” Android 2.3 tablet (Honeycomb is said to be on the way, but HTC was not provided the code in time for the View and no timetable has been given) that features a 1280x600 display, 5MP rear and 1.3MP front cameras and HTC Scribe technology.  The latter allows the EVO View 4G to be used much like a pen and paper, albeit with some other goodies thrown in the mix.  Other features include a 4000mAh battery, 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and 8GB of internal memory with microSD expansion.

Initially we like the look and feel of the HTC EVO View 4G. It is constructed out of aluminum and high quality plastic which give it a top notch feel.  The device is rather heavy at 15oz (the original Galaxy Tab is 13.4) but with the premium materials that is to be expected.  The 7” screen is very vivid with an excellent viewing angle which makes the new Sense 3.0 interface sparkle. Stay tuned for our full review of the HTC EVO View 4G soon!
