The HTC EVO View 4G fits nicely in a white coat pocket. I was showing this to a hospital CMIO who said, "I'm going to get one." Although the Apple iPad is a very nice device, it really doesn't fit into a standard white coat pocket. The 7" HTC EVO View 4G fits very easily. Plus, the Android OS is familiar to anyone who already has an Android smartphone.
My initial impressions:
- Very nice tablet running Android
- Small and light: fits easily into a white coat pocket
- The pen-based input works well (HTC Scribe Technology), but it is not as smooth and accurate as Wacom-based tablets
- Great to have cameras on the front and back
- 4G data speeds (WiMAX) speeds from Sprint are excellent
I'll be posting additional thoughts as I spend more time with this device.
Here's a brief description of the EVO View 4G:
Sprint and HTC’s first 3G/4G Android tablet together, HTC EVO View 4G, will bring the best of the HTC EVO experience into a tablet design with a 7-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen display with pinch-to-zoom, a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon® processor and the latest version of HTC Sense. As the perfect combination e-reader, media player and portable computing device, HTC EVO View 4G offers a premium entertainment experience with HD-quality video and a rich Web-browsing experience with the ability to browse the Web on Flash-enabled sites.
