Sprint today announced that Android 3.2 has been deployed for the 7-inch Evo View 4G tablet. Available immediately, the update brings Honeycomb features to the device including customized, resizable widgets, large display optimization, and more. Although Sprint won’t be pushing the update until 2012, users can manually download and install Honeycomb.
Sprint offers a word of caution for the update, advising that the device will revert to its “out of the box” state on the desktop and remove apps, shortcuts, and widgets. This is not to say that the tablet will uninstall everything, rather it will have a stock home screen appearance.
Another thing to keep in mind is that some of the apps that Evo View 4G users have previously installed may not work with the 3.2 update. In those instances, you’ll want to check the Android Market to see if there is a tablet version or upgraded release to install in its place.
