Pros The scribe, the screen, its' portability, the endless possibilities it offers, it's fun, it trucks, it is amazing.
Cons It's a tad heavy to hold after a while like when I took it to go shopping groceries. Not a lot of accesories for this particular tablet yet and at times the UI is a bit choppy.
I would not know a single core processor from a dual core processor even if I
Summary This is exactly what I wanted from my first android tablet. I was about to buy the IPad 2 in January until I came across with the HTC flyer. When I researched what this baby could do, I waited to see it in action face to face. When I did, I fell in love and it was over. Since I wanted the pen, I bought it from Sprint with a 2GB plan and I find that it was the best thing I ever did. Now when my contract is over with Tmobile, I will cancel my plan with them and buy a regular cell phone, since everything I would do with my Samsung Vibrant I can now do with my HTC view 4g. On that note, I went to a conference at NYU and I took my HTC tablet to take notes during the various conferences I was going to attend. Well I was not the only one. Almost everyone in the conference had an IPAD or the IPAD 2 , I had my tablet and I used the scribe to write the info or a combination of the screen keyboard. Meanwhile I saw IPAD user docked their IPad to small keyboards and typed away with some difficulty due to the keyboard's size. So I ask myself, If I were going to dock my tablet to a keyboard, why not buy a lenovo notebook or something similar to that? Why buy a tablet, when I have to use a keyboard? This is not a great example of portability. This is not an example of power. Tthis is not technology accommodating my needs, this is an example of my needs accommodating technology. And this is the reason why I am glad I bought my HTC. So then, because of its power and endless possibilites, I have decided to sacrifice portability and buy the 10 inch Puccini Tablet from HTC when it becomes available.
Please forgive my grammar and use of the language, I speak Spanish and I wrote this on the fly....in a doctor's office...
Pros nice UI, good form factor, responsive capacitive screen
Cons low quality charging port connector, no Sprint warranty, HTC does not honor manufacturer warranty
Summary This device is not ready for enterprise use. Sprint does not warranty tablets because it deems them to be accessories. I was shocked to learn that Sprint would not sell me a warranty. We purchased our tablet from Sprint Enterprise Telesales. On the 31st day, I broke the charging port while plugging in the AC charger to the device. The solder inside the tablet broke loose. I could hear rattling in the tablet as I would shake the tablet. After much dismay with Sprint warranty policies, I sent the unit to HTC manufacture support in Houston. They promply informed me that the device had to be repaired OUT OF WARRANTY for $110. Furthermore, they accused me (in writing) of tampering with the device, stating that it had MISSING PARTS. I was shocked at the accusation, but had no other choice but to pay the extortion money and hope to receive my device back. The entire process took 4 weeks (or half a product lifecycle). The lesson learned is that HTC is not ready to provide enterprise-level support for business. They are focused on nickel-diming users out of repair fees.. which is a typical small Chinese company approach to consumer relationships. Our company has since discontinued research into the possiblity of using HTC products for our enterprise. We will be examining Samsung and Lenovo as the next Android tablet alternative.HTC is also the only major computer manufacturer which does NOT accept AMERICAN EXPRESS. That's right, I had to use a MasterCard for payment. Does it remind you of your cheap local Chinese restaurant? Just call their support line at 855-788-3705 and ask what credit cards they accept. You will be shocked.

Pros 1.Price - $250 advertised(Sprint)
2.HTC sense + Honeycomb = excellent combo
3.scribe pen - Love it.(included)
4.Memory & storage size.
Cons Need to sign up with sprint for the low price.
Summary Cnet's review:
The bad: small,thick, pricey,no Honeycomb & pen not included.
This tablet may have "quietly" deserve to have the rating updated to excellent.
Pros 7 inch form factor (ideal for meetings), blazing fast processor, note taking feature(sync with evernote), blazing fast 4G connectivity (I have the EVO View 4G), top notch build quality and impressive battery life.
Cons I wish it had a swappable battery (Although battery life is impressive)
Summary I had an Ipad, however, I found it a bit combersome for use on the go and especially in meetings. As soon as the 4G Flyer (Evo View 4G) was released, I got one. I must say, it is the best tablet I have used to date. It fits perfectly into my routine (size and capabilities). I love being able to take notes in a meeting, then going to my office and being able to review my notes on my desktop computer, this is efficiency at its finest. Editing my subordinates reports is a snap with the scribe pen. I have had my Evo View 4G for over 3 months now, and I use it heavily everyday. It does everything I want it to do in a very elegant fashion. I love it, my wife love it and my kids (4 and 12) absolutely loves it. The bottom line is, everyone must first determine their unique needs and choose the tablet/device which best address those needs. For me, a 4G tablet thats able to take hand written notes and sync with evernote is an absolute necessity. Consequently, the the HTC Evo View 4G is the ideal tablet for me.
Pros HTC Sense UI, Snapdragon processor, Battery life, boot time, portability
Cons Does stumble sometimes, not sure if its Sense or Snapdragon
Summary If you want to replace a netbook with something that won't burn your lap & you have to have HTC's Sense UI, then this is the only tablet for you. I replaced a netbook with this tablet, and have not regretted it since. The netbook had a 1.6Ghz, compared to the View's 1.5Ghz. Both have 1GB of RAM. And the 32GB of memory is enough for what I need it for, and if it's not, there's always the SD card slot. The 5 second boot time is so much better than waiting a minute for the netbook to boot. This is a supplemental computer, not a primary, so pretty much surfing the web, checking email, & checking social network sites is all I use it for. And the occasional game of Angry Birds of course. Runs like a champ, never have an issue with it locking up or crashing. The only down side I've seen is with the Live Wallpapers. Using the weather wallpaper trips it up all the time. I'm not sure if this is a problem with Sense or a problem with the processor handling the wallpaper. And no Facebook app? Really strange.
This tablet is definitely not for everyone. If you love HTC's phones and are looking to replace a netbook with something with better battery life, then look no further.
