Sprint has shown a commitment to the Android platform on par if not better than any other US carrier and so far that partnership has seemed to pay off. The HTC EVO 4G was an amazing success for the wireless retailer and the Galaxy Tab proved surprisingly successful despite Apple’s chokehold on the mobile tablet space. Sprint is looking to capture that success again on 6/24/2011 with the launch of 3 new high-end devices.
1. The HTC EVO 3D
Love or hate 3D you have to admit the spec sheet for this device is extremely impressive. Improving over it’s predecessor in almost every way possible (some debate on the camera front) and still managing to pull off a slimmer form factor and better battery life. All this compounded with the reasonable $200 price tag on contract and it probably feels about time to upgrade for many Sprint customers.
2. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Sure, it’s a little lame that it’s still only the Wi-Fi version but it’s still one great Honeycomb tablet. It’s specs are pretty much what you expect by now, Tegra 2 processor and 1 GB of ram. What sets the Galaxy Tab 10.1 apart is it’s form factor. It’s currently the slimiest and lightest tablet available on the market despite having a slightly larger screen. Coupled with the over drive hotspot plan costing the same as a tablet plan you may consider making the switch.
3. The HTC EVO View 4G
Two new EVO devices on the same daymakes it clear Sprint thinks this brand really has legs. The HTC EVO View 4G is essentially the same as the flyer that came out earlier this year except with sprints radios and twice the internal storage. It also has a really solid black brushed aluminum black and sprint will even throw in the $80 scribe is you act soon. All in all it’s a pretty solid deal.
