Bloatware easily uninstalled on HTC EVO View 4G too

Evo-view-bloatware

Sprint was widely praised for making most of its bloatware easily uninstallable from the HTC EVO 3D (even though there's evidence that the unwanted apps aren't really being removed) and it turns out that the carrier isn't playing favorites. The coveted "Uninstall" button for apps like Nascar can also be found on the other EVO that was released on the same day as the new phone—the View 4G.

As with other apps, most of Sprint's additions can be uninstalled from the Gingerbread tablet by tapping Settings > Applications > Manage Applications, selecting what you want to uninstall, and then tapping Yes to confirm.

The EVO View 4G has already been shown to hold its own against the 7-inch tablet competition, but with its native support of Netflix, ability to take screenshots out of the box, and now the uninstallable bloatware, some early naysayers may be having a change of heart.
