We’re still a ways away from confirming all the leaked details for Sprint’s CTIA announcement, but HTC’s latest trademark application does confirm that at least one of the three products Sprint is expected to unveil in a few weeks. According to a new file listed by the U.S. Patent Office, HTC is looking to trademark the name “HTC EVO View 4G” which pretty much confirms that Sprint is planing on launching an Android tablet with WiMax support.
The assumption is that the HTC EVO View 4G is simply a CDMA and WiMax enabled HTC Flyer running on Android 2.3 with a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm. But Sprint and HTC may deliver something even better. Since we have no real details to go off of, we could just as easily assume that the HTC EVO View 4G is the HTC Verdi, an Adroid tablet which will feature a larger 10-inch display, Honeycomb and may possibly be powered by a dual-core Snapdragon processor. For now, it’s simply a guessing game. We’ll have to wait for more details to leak out before we can call it either way.
There are a lot of factors to take into consideration when buying an Android tablet; but would you rather have the HTC Flyer with Android 2.3 and a 7-inch display or the HTC Verdi with a 10-inch display running on Android 3.0?
