Upcoming Sprint EVO View 4G could be a WiMAX-compatible HTC Flyer
After the wildly successful EVO 4G smartphone for Sprint, HTC could very well be taking the next step up and trying its luck with an EVO 4G tablet.
This week, HTC has filed a trademark for the name EVO View 4G, which is now confirmed to be an upcoming tablet for Sprint. Exactly what tablet, however, is currently unknown, but chances are reasonable that it could be the much anticipated HTC Flyer but with WiMAX capabilities, according to Electronista.
HTC has yet to officially announce any cell phone carriers that could be tied to the Flyer, but given the company’s success with Sprint, a subsidized Flyer with a 2-year data plan is a huge possibility. Otherwise, a non-subsidized Flyer could be as much as $600 if previous rumors hold true.
The HTC Flyer will be a 7-inch, 1024x600 resolution screen with a single-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, front and rear facing cameras, and a version of Android Froyo with HTC’s custom Sense UI.
All eyes will be on Sprint later this month at the CTIA convention in Florida as we expect news about the mysterious HTC EVO View 4G. Whether it be the WiMAX-enabled Flyer or a new tablet altogether, the announcement should be exciting either way.
