What is the last thing you feel like finding out once you have unwrapped your lovely new EVO 4G tablet from Sprint? You boot it up it up for the first time and notice it does not really 'flow' as well as you thought. You may even go so far as to call the UI, 'clunky'. It was initially rumored that the HTC Tablet would ship out with Android 2.3: 'Gingerbread', which apparently does not have the best relationship with newer tablets. Luckily, HTC and Sprint have not left future EVO 4G tablet users up a creek with buyer's remorse. Sprint has made the announcement that the tablet will ship with a more tablet-friendly flavor of Android, more specifically that of Android 3.0: 'Honeycomb'. With the tablet market growing quickly every day, it was the right decision for Sprint to not hamper the device's impressive hardware with poor software compatibility.
