first_imgBefore all of Apple’s WWDC news broke, Sprint made sure to get its announcement in that it will be releasing the HTC EVO 3D smartphone and the EVO View 4G tablet on June 24. The 4.3-inch EVO 3D is the first glasses-free 3D display on a smartphone, and the 7-inch EVO View is the first 4G-capable WiMAX tablet in the U.S. If you’re one of Sprint’s Premiere customers, you can get the EVO 3D online starting June 21 – a whole three days early.Both devices will feature Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The 1.2GHz dual-core HTC EVO 3D will cost you $199.99 with a new two-year contract. The 1.5GHz single-core tablet, on the other hand, will cost you $399.99 with a two-year contract. Data plans start at $35 per month for 3GB of 3G data and unlimited 4G data usage.AdChoices广告The tablet comes with the nifty HTC Scribe pen that lets the user write notes, sign their signature on documents, add annotations, and so on, right on the tablet’s touchscreen. According to Sprint, this is only available for a limited time. The pen itself is worth $80.The EVO View includes 4G capability and works on Sprint’s WiMAX network. When there’s no 4G service available, the tablet drops down to the Sprint 3G network. It offers 32GB of memory, Mobile Hotspot connectivity up for up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices, 1GB RAM, HD video recording, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.The EVO View tablet also features Flash support, which is something the iPad is still lacking. It’s a little surprising that the View will be running Android 2.3 when the Motorola Xoom tablet is running Android 3.1 Honeycomb. Sprint said in a press release that it will update the View to Android 3.0 when it’s available for a 7-inch tablet.last_img
