htc: evo view + flyer tablets

the ‘evo view’ 4G tablet by htc



two tablet options by htc, the 4G-ready ‘evo view‘ and the wifi-only ‘flyer’, offer the customized features of the company’s ‘sense’ user interface in a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 touchscreen tablet.

on a 1.2GHz snapdragon dual core processor, both devices run ‘htc sense’: the ‘evo view’ over android 2.3 (gingerbread) and ‘flyer’ on android 2.4 (to be updated to honeycomb this spring). the seven homescreens are navigated as a continuous carousel, rather than a series of panels, and the unlocking screen enables users to include up to four custom icons that can be dragged into a target to automatically load an application as the system reopens.

dual cameras include a 5-megapixel rear camera with HD-ready video recording at 720pixels and a 1.3-megapixel forward-facing camera. dual microphones and dual speakers add additional multimedia and communication functionality.

the device itself features two sets of navigation buttons, for both portrait and landscape configurations. with a largely aluminum body, the tablet weighs 14.88 ounces (422g), measuring 7.7 x 4.4 x 0.5 inches (195.4 x 112.5 x 13.2 mm).

sold separately, the ‘htc scribe’ digital pen provides another way of interacting with either the ‘evo view’ or the ‘flyer’. designed to interface with evernote, the device permits users to sign documents and make and save notes on webpages, pdf files, and e-books.

4G-ready and serviced through sprint, the ‘htc evo view’ mobile hotspot capabilities support up to eight wifi devices simultaneously. the android marketplace, blockbuster on demand, and sprint applications come standard to the tablet, while htc’s ‘flyer’ model features exclusively the android market.

the ‘evo view’ is expected to be available in summer of 2011, with the ‘flyer’ available through best buy as early as this spring.
