HTC EVO View 4G Honeycomb

One advantage that the HTC EVO View 4G has over its generic Flyer counterpart is the fact that it can run on Sprint's 3G/4G network when you're out and about and absolutely need to look up a random tidbit of information on Wikipedia. Now it looks like the EVO View 4G may sport another feature that the Flyer won't, at least not initially: Honeycomb. According to a page on Sprint's website, the EVO View 4G will sport "Android 3.0 just for tablets" when it launches later this summer. However, it's also worth noting that HTC's site says that the EVO View 4G will be running Android 2.3, not 3.0.

Although the EVO View 4G boasts compatibility with Sprint's WiMAX network and HTC's Scribe technology, it might become even more attractive if it were to launch with the newest, tablet-specific version of Android. Which OS do you all think that the EVO View 4G will launch with? Would you still be interested in it if it included Gingerbread rather than Honeycomb?

UPDATE: Sprint has now updated the "This just in" page, replacing the "Android 3.0 just for tablets" bullet point with a new, much more vague one that reads "Latest version of Android." When asked exactly which version of Android the EVO View will come to market with, a Sprint spokesperson had this to say: "Our plan is to offer Honeycomb, it's just a matter of when. It's too early to determine whether or not Honeycomb will be available at launch."

Tony Abiama
Tony Abiama No need for a tab really. Smartphone does the job. After personally using a rooted Nook Color running Gingerbread I can honestly say that I will be ditching it as soon as I get an Evo 3D

George Espinosa
George Espinosa I love my iPad! Actually, I purchased an iPad just to see if I would like it and knowing I have an iPhone 4, I wanted to see if it's worth it. If I didn't like it and found it useless, then I would return it... The funny thing is that I actually use my iPad more than I do my iPhone 4 at home, work and if I'm out and about. Internet is a lot better and pretty much a lot of things are better. Much easier than carrying a laptop...thats for sure. Again, this is just my opinion on tablets.
Zach Cline
Zach Cline Ben tablets ARE computers. I don't get why some of you are so hung up on your freaking laptops. They aren't that great . And tablets do everything they can and are only going to get more advanced.
Zach Cline
Zach Cline They are stopping production in june.
Elis Diaz
Elis Diaz I was thinking about the Xoom, but I just read about a rumor that they are going to stop production in June; it would suck if the SD card slot isn't working before that happens. Hopefully it's not true.
Michael Singer
Michael Singer Did HTC include a battery with this tablet? Just wondering...
Shad Wanless
Shad Wanless Holding off, it would be silly to buy now. Everytime I turn the corner there is a brand new out
Benjamin Padilla
Benjamin Padilla @Zach. HOW are tablets better then computers and smart phones? When I want to be productive, I pull out my laptop. When I want to consume media like listen to music, play games, and take pictures on a small device, I use my 4 inch Galaxy S phone. A tablet is an awkward mixture of both.

August White Never been a fan of HTC Sense so I would say no. But the HP Touchpad does look enticing.

Tony Dear III
Tony Dear III I don't get the point of having a tablet other than to show it off when you have a smart phone especially. They are really cool but highly unecessary. That's my opinion. But I'd sure take one for free:)
