Update: HTC has filed a trademark for the term “HTC EVO View 4G,” furthering the speculation an EVO View will be at CTIA. However, under the “Goods and Services” section, the filing does not contain the word “tablet,” but it does list “Mobile phones, smartphones, cellular phones, portable computers” along with other phrases.
If the HTC EVO View 4G is the HTC Flyer, it will be Sprint’s first 4G tablet. We’ll know soon enough as CTIA opens up on March 22.

Sprint has something big lined up for CTIA, but aside from a teaser promising Sprint will pull “back the curtain with the latest wireless innovation” at the wireless tradeshow, details are scarce.
The innovative HTC Flyer debuted at Mobile World Congress last month and stands out from the Android Honeycomb tablet pack thanks to its active N-trig stylus support.
In addition to an active pen with palm rejection, the 7-inch Flyer will sport an aluminum unibody build and weigh just under a pound. It will feature a 1.5GHz processor, 7-inch capacitive TFT display with a 1024 x 600 resolution and 1GB of RAM.
If the CDMA rumor is true, it will support 3G in addition to the confirmed b/g/n 802.11 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. Finally, the Flyer will have the standard 5 megapixel rear-facing and 1.3 megapixel-front facing digital cameras, internal GPS, ambient light sensor, g-sensor, and digital compass, in addition to Flash support.
TabletPCReview sister site Brighthand has more details on the rumored Sprint smartphones, including the Samsung Nexus S 4G and EVO 3D. Both Brighthand and TabletPCReview will be in Orlando for CTIA and Sprint’s press conference, where we will also collaborate for the Mobile Life event, featuring a panel discussion on the latest trends in smartphones and tablets, and the Brighthand Mobile Film Fest.
