HTC made a splash earlier this year with the unveiling of its 7-inch tablet, the HTC Flyer. This is the first Android tablet to get pen input in addition to the standard touch screen. Sprint today announced it will be carrying the Flyer, aka the HTC EVO View 4G, starting this summer.
The 7-inch tablet will ship with Gingerbread that has HTC Sense enhancements to further the branding and distinguish the View from other Android tablets. The display uses the NTrig digitizer which allows both touch input and the use of a special pen for pointing and handwriting. HTC has previously shown its Scribe technology that allows handwriting in certain apps, including Evernote.
