You must’ve heard that Sprint introduced the HTC View 4G Android tablet during this week’s CTIA 2011 event. Well, now we’re back with extra details, including a hands-on experience with the slate. We’re dealing with an Android 2.3 device here, one that uses the HTC Sense 3.0 interface, that includes a very cool carousel spin view, as shown in the video below.
As far as hardware is concerned, under the hood of this beauty we find a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. You can add an extra 32GB via memory card and this rebranded HTC Flyer also supports DLNA, as well as WiMAX 4G, courtesy of Sprint. Back to Sense, the UI allows you to use up to 8 home pages, completely customizable.
With the Scribe technology you’ll use the stylus that comes with the device to underline, circle or takes notes on web pages, on photos and whatnot. After you mark what’s worth seeing or reading, you can share it with your friends on Facebook. There’s also an option to record audio, as you type with your stylus, so a document from a meeting can hold both handwritten notes and some audio files from the conference.
The e-reader app is also shown in action, as well as the back cover of the HTC View 4G, that’s different from the one of the Flyer, at least in this aspect. We also get to see the back 5MP camera and the front 1.3 megapixel one. Release is scheduled for this summer, while the price is a mystery right now.
