Last year, the big announcement at CTIA was the Evo 4G, which was the first 3G/4G smartphone on the market at that time. Following up the 3D trend and on the heels of the LG Optimus 3D, the HTC Evo 3D is the first 4G device with a 4.3-inch qHD 3D display. Users will be able to capture and playback 3D videos without any special glasses. The smartphone will run on a 1.2Ghz dual-core Snapdragon processor with extra horsepower for demanding apps and is promised to perform "like a PC."

Other specs include dual 5-megapixel rear-facing cameras and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Hesse said that the Evo 3D represents "continuing proof of Sprint’s commitment to provide latest, most innovative devices to our customers."

Hesse followed up with another big unveiling: the 7-inch HTC Evo View 3G/4G tablet. This product actually garnered some applause at the mid-afternoon press conference. Running on HTC Sense with a 1.5Ghz processor, it also runs on Gingerbread as well with an Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) promised for a later date. Users can record HD videos using the available dual cameras, read books, as well as make and receive video calls. Sporting a 7-inch display, the Evo View is also designed to be partnered with the HTC Scribe digital pen accessory, which can capture meeting/class notes while simultaneously recording audio, make notations while surfing the web, and sign/print documents.

Both of these HTC/Sprint devices offer HDMI and DLNA video output for connecting to HDTVs and can serve as hotspots for up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices. The HTC Evo 3D and Evo View 4G tablet brings Sprint's total of 4G devices to 22.

Pricing wasn't revealed, but both of these mobile products will be available this summer.

    Now I am in dilemma, which one to get, EVO View 4G Tablet or new Samsung Galaxy Tablet with 16GB for my development work. Probably I would go with EVO View 4G Tablet, because it is HTC made and is in the same line as of EVO 4G phone.

      iPad 2, simplicity is better...

        @Hasam1991 I agree iPad 2, but not because of simplicity, but only because it has been on the market a little longer.

        The HTC Evo View caught my eye as well, after watching a review video from CITA 2011 http://bit.ly/fhteQx

        Glad to see that the tablet market is developing. There are options now, baby!

        The Evo 4g was better than the Iphone. Is it that you are afraid the Evo view will be better than the Ipad?

        Let me check with Steve Jobs. I need him to decide what I want to use it for and what apps I am allowed to use, after all. In Steve we trust.

        Not.

        Oh I already have iPad and upgrading it to iPad2, I am a mobile architect and play with variety of toys. I need a Honeycomb tablet, and thinking between HTC EVO View 4G and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. I can't stand Motorola. I have Atrix 4g and I think I have neutral opinion on it. I haven't seen the quality of HTC Android Phones in Motorola. Shame on US company, they are forcing me to choose a korean or taiwanese in this case.

      @Rama.NET I want a 7-inch Android tablet with an interface designed specifically for note taking with a stylus. Sounds like I need an iPad 2 too. Because we are all the same and our needs are whatever Apple has dictated our needs to be.

  • Both look good

    Both of the devices look good. If the do the right things with the HTC tablet it could be another smash hit like the EVO 4G is.

      @Jimster480 I am more excited about the View than any other Android device out there. I think it is going to be the perfect work companion.
