Htc-evo-view-4g

Right now there's a bit of speculation among tech enthusiasts that the HTC Flyer is about to be discontinued. This stems from the removal of the product page from Best Buy's website, as well as Best Buy's recent price reductions and near-fire sale pricing. But what about the Flyer's near-identical twin, the HTC EVO View 4G?

Interestingly enough, our favorite 7-inch tablet has also seen its fair-share of discount pricing from various vendors, even going as low as $229 off-contract. This is in spite of an initial on-contract price of $399.99.

And Sprint certainly seems to be trying to rid itself of its current EVO View inventory. Open up the Sprint Zone app on your phone, for example, and you'll see an advertisement for the View for as low as $249.99, along with the digital pen reduced to $49.99 from an initial $79.99.

Are all these price-cuts due to Sprint and HTC's plans to EOL the EVO View, right around the same time it's getting its promised Honeycomb update? Or are these in response to comparable yet cheaper tablets made by Amazon and Barnes and Noble? Of course, everything right now is pure conjecture, but if the EVO View does get killed off soon, I can only hope that HTC has plans for a quad-core monster to take its place.
