HTC EVO View 4G Honeycomb Rolling Out Now

Posted In Featured, News - By Mark Hearn On Wednesday, December 21st, 2011 6:17pm PDT With 3 Comments

A couple of weeks ago, we shared that we’d received word that the HTC EVO View 4G would be getting its highly anticipated Honeycomb upgrade before the year’s end. We hate to say we told you so, but well, we told you so. We’ve received word that EVO View 4G customers are receiving an over-the-air push of software version 2.23.651.1 aka Honeycomb, as we speak.

In the form of a 217MB file, Android 3.2.1 not only brings Honeycomb to HTC’s 7-inch slab, it adds a plethora of enhancements and fixes. If you haven’t seen any action, please be patient, the updated is officially slated to hit tomorrow. If you’re among the lucky folks that have already received the update, please let us know how it’s treating you. For those of you still waiting, check out the change log below.

Updates include:

  • Physical Hard keys replaced with on screen Soft keys
  • New Google search, available on every page
  • System Bar: Quick access to notifications, status, and soft navigation buttons available at the bottom of the screen
  • Notifications menu moved to the bottom right corner of the screen, on the System Bar.
  • The Action Bar—which can be accessed by touching the Plus Sign icon at the top right of the screen—is the key to contextual, changing menus that are controlled by each application.
  • Enhanced security including Sprint Data Link and 3LM

 

Fixes include:

  • Google video chat
  • Bluetooth capable in Airplane mode

    The only reason I am excited about this update is the stylus unshackling… hello Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop Touch! Goodbye HTC Note (for sketching at least).

    The upgrade went really smoothly and I’m in love with my tablet all over again. If you had created all these widgets and shortcuts or folders on your Gingerbread tablet, all of them will disappear. Your tablet basically resets to factory settings. Don’t panic, your data is still there, just the widgets and shortcuts will disappear and you’ll need to recreate them. But I love the new layout, the widgets are smaller and Sense makes the interface looks so nice compared to stock Honeycomb.

    The best news – the pen works great! You can now use it to navigate and select things or fill up forms as well as draw using applications like Sketchbook Pro. I can now use the tablet like a real notebook, and a drawing pad….

    Very please with how Honeycomb enhanced the tablet….

    My Flyer prompted me to upgrade to the newer version a week ago and I’ve had nothing but problems since. I don’t know if its the upgrade itself or it made something else have a glitch, but its extremely frustrating. I no longer can view videos on facebook or YouTube. It freezes my tablet and on top of that, my tablet runs much slower. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you, Liz
