HTC EVO View 4G Snapdragon 1.5GHz 1GB 32GB 7-inch Touchscreen Android 2.3 Tablet Getting Started Guide AC power adapter (Input: AC 100-240V 50/60 Hz 0.6A; Output: DC 9V 1.67A) USB cable
Bringing the best of HTC's EVO experience to a sleek, easy-to-carry tablet design, the EVO View 4G for Sprint combines a media player, e-reader, and portable computing device into a slim package with a brightly colorful 7-inch multi-touch display. And with Android 2.3 (a.k.a., Gingerbread), the newest version of HTC Sense, and a 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the EVO View 4G can do things most tablets can only dream of.
The EVO View 4G can fit places most other tablets can't (view larger).
5-MP rear camera with HD 720p
video capture (view larger).
It runs on Sprint's expanding 4G network, offering download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, the tablet can still connect to 3G data services in areas not currently served by Sprint's 4G network (learn more about Sprint's 4G network below).
It features two cameras--a 5.0 megapixel auto-focus camera with HD-capable video camcorder and a forward-facing 1.3 megapixel camera that's ideal for video chats. With integrated HD-video (720p) capture and the 4G speeds of the EVO View 4G, slow uploads and grainy video are a thing of the past.
With Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, you'll be able to connect to home and business Wi-Fi networks and access large files such as HD video in minutes. You also get the optional 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability for sharing your wireless connection with up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously. Other optional add-on services include GPS Navigation for $2.99 per day or $10 per month, and the Sprint Family Locator service for keeping tabs on your family.
7-inch multi-touch screen with pinch-and-zoom (view larger).
You'll be able to rent or purchase the hottest new movie releases on the same day they become available on Blu-ray and DVD via Blockbuster On Demand. Other features include GPS for navigation and location-based services, Bluetooth 3.0 for connecting to peripherals and streaming audio, 32 GB internal memory, expansion via optional microSD memory cards, and access to both personal and corporate e-mail (Microsoft Exchange).
The Pen Is Mightier
Using HTC Scribe Technology, the EVO View 4G offers a new way to interact with a tablet. HTC Scribe introduces the HTC Scribe digital pen (sold separately) to the tablet experience and unlocks new capabilities. You can add scribbles, photos and sound to your detailed notes. Link your notes to events in your calendar and your calendar transforms into a multimedia archive of your past meetings or events.
And when combined with Evernote, a leading notes application and service, you'll have the ability to capture and make notes--on Web pages, e-books, PDF documents, and more--in an easy and natural way. HTC Scribe digital pen also uses Timemark to capture the audio of a meeting at the same time as written notes.
Android Gingerbread Operating System
The EVO View 4G runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed "Gingerbread") which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation. Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming email and then switch back to the game without losing your place.
A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The EVO View 4G also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day, including Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps with Navigation, Google Calendar, Picasa, and YouTube. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.
The HTC EVO View 4G weighs 14.88 ounces and measures 7.69 x 4.42 x 0.52 inches. It runs on Sprint's 4G network as well as the 800/1900 CDMA/EV-DO Rev. A frequencies.

In addition to the previous great attributes (fantastic Sense interface, amazing note taking integration):
1) This tablet now features a month to month data plan that starts at 15 dollars for 150 Mbs. This offers fantastic flexiblity.
2) The tablet was also recently updated to Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) The update is readily available and can be downloaded as soon as you start it up & get it connected to the internet.
3) No required contract, you can activate the 4G data when you wish, and deactivate it when you wish. This is essentially one of the best WiFi enabled tablets that also happens to let you use a 4g plan if you wish.
4) PRICE, you will see great deals on this tablet. I picked one up for 219. This initially was a big factor in some of the negative reviews, and since the tablet price has really sunk.
This is absolutely the best tablet if you are looking for something for a student. The integrated note app is invaluable (also you can pick up a Lenovo think pad pen for about 20$ less than the HTC one) And the 7 inch size makes it much more portable than the 10 inch models.
The HTC sense tech is great, and reading on this tablet is a joy. All words in a book can be highlighted. You can take a note on any highlighted section, and then a sticky will appear on the page. You can also see a list of all the notes you have taken for a particular book. In addition, you can highlight any section of text and search that text immediately from the reader app (an invaluable tool for students)
Bottom line, this tablet is just about the best thing you can buy, especially for the prices its going for.Read more ›
This is an incredible tablet. It's fast, responsive, and the screen is extremely sharp (important to guys like me with over-40 eyesight). I just ordered a pen to use with it so can't comment on how well that works, but have been using a touch stylus with excellent results.
There are only two things that I *don't* like about the View 4G. As with some other tablets, it will not allow you to link it to an ad-hoc wifi signal. The manufacturer has disabled that capability for some unknown reason. I'm frustrated by that as I set up an ad-hoc wifi network on my laptop at work to sync data between the View and my laptop, only to find out it wasn't going to work. I was using the same wireless configuration to sync a BN Nook Color (rooted running CyanogenMod) to my laptop previously and was extremely disappointed to find out HTC has decided to prevent the use of ad-hoc networking with the View 4G. I recently upgraded to Honeycomb in hopes that the ad-hoc functionality had been included but no such luck.
And last but not least -- the battery cover on the back of the unit is EXTREMELY difficult to remove/replace. It is amazingly hard to get the cover off without breaking it, and nearly as difficult to replace it.
But other than those two issues this is an incredible tablet - I really am impressed with it. So much so that when my first one was stolen 3 days after I got it I went out and immediately bought another. If HTC ever unlocks the ad-hoc wireless capability I'll change my rating to 5 stars.
