Sprint has just finished unveiling the HTC EVO View seven-inch Android tablet, releasing full product details and a ton of information on the device during a CTIA showcase event. Known as the HTC Flyer at the Mobile World Congress (where TabletPCReview had hands-on time with the device), the newly christened View has been officially shown off to American consumers and media.
There are several features of the View that stood out during Sprint’s presentation and in the accompanying press releases. Sprint and HTC seem most excited about the EVO View’s digital pen compatibility, which has become the View’s main marketing point.
When combined with a digital pen (sold separately), the View gains considerably extensive, potentially unique capabilities as a note taking or drawing device. The EVO View comes with HTC Scribe Technology, which will provide the interface for digital pen use.
Sprint also highlighted the 4G capabilities the View will have on the Sprint WiMAX network, with download speeds of more than 10 Mbps, and the relatively high quality 5 MP rear-facing camera, which will shoot HD video in 720p.
