The remarks of the Sprint that later this year they will surprise us with a list of new items seems to be realistic enough. The thing is that we got a word from USPTO that Sprint together with HTC are going ahead of time. HTC filed to trademark with the name of “HTC EVO View 4G”. This means that soon we will get a chance to have a joint tablet from Sprint and HTC.
The component “4G” in the name means that the carrier will come up with ready WiMAX connectivity tablet. So far Sprint has been distributing only one tablet and that is the one from Samsung- Samsung Galaxy Tab. In case if the support for the 4G will be confirmed we might believe that this will turn into an exclusive offer. And except that will turn into a potential hit for Sprint itself.
The main emphasize that needs to be done here is the price of the tablet. We do really hope that at least this time HTC will come up with a more reasonable price than for HTC Flyer, which will most likely cost $600. Nobody will be eager to pay too much for HTC gadget in case if the offer line will be fulfilled with such newest tablet as the items from Apple, Motorola or Blackberry- iPad, Xoom and PlayBook.
Most likely the final product will be revealed during CTIA 2011 event later this month. Hopefully the two HTC tablets will differ significantly, making a surprise for the customers.
