Remember this? 

Apparently the demand for a hardware buttoned, Gingerbread packing, 7 inch tablet (with optional pen input!) at full price isn't very high, because the HTC Evo View 4G is hitting the bargain bin yet again.

This time it's over at 1saleaday.com, where you can get an Evo View 4G for $234.98 (after shipping), that's a full $4.97 less than it was 3 days ago (which sold out in minutes), and $165 less than Sprint's theoretical $400 off-contract price.

Their title is wrong. It says dual core, but trust us, unless they have some super secret prototype we've never heard of, the tablet you receive will be strictly mono-core.

Speaking of specs:

  • 7-inch 1024x600 display with pen support (Pen not included)
  • 1.5GHz single-core processor (A Qualcomm MSM8655, if you want to get all technical)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • 4000 mAh battery
  • Android 2.3 with Sense

The GSM version (the HTC Flyer) recently got it's Honeycomb upgrade, so hopefully this version will soon be saved from a lifetime of giant Gingerbread apps. The hardware buttons though, those are forever.

Expect a good eye for detail, lots of research, and some lamenting about how something isn't designed well enough.

    Single core? Are you sure? :P

      Yes, they're wrong. It's single core.

      Yup. Everyone else was starting to jump to dual core processors, but HTC road the fail train. I WAS a big fan of theirs until that tablet. Eh.

        It's still a pretty good tablet, and with pressure sensitive pen support. At this price, I would go for this instead of the Kindle any day.

        "road" lol

    Ha, just noticed the thumb. Sneaky :P

    Can you still receive the OS updates with WiFi only? Or will you have to activate a data plan w/ Sprint to get these?

    • Matt

      i would assume you'd have to be able to, especially for the people who do have it on a contract and then stop the service on it and use it wi-fi only. either way, i'm sure there's a way to download the update file and update it yourself.
      i debated most of the day today and then finally jumped on it.. been looking for a secondary/budget 7" tablet and eyeing up the kindle fire for a little while. from what i've read, this is a pretty nice device, and its specs are very respectable, even in this world of dual-core. the price is awesome. just hope honeycomb's a definite. never used an htc device before, kind of excited.

    A tablet with nice features, and with a sensitive pen support. You cannot find a deal better then this. I can recommend it to anyone.
