The BET Awards 2011 went high-tech with the HTC Evo View 4G from Sprint. The presenters used them to reveal the winners rather than the traditional envelopes.
The 7-inch tablet will be launched this weekend, and the HTC Evo View 4G from Sprint will first be seen in action in its huge spot at this year’s BET Awards. The show is live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA, with Kevin Hart hosting.
The first presenter to use the HTC Evo View 4G was Taraji P. Henson. She awarded the Male R&B Artist of the Year. Before she revealed the winner (Chris Brown), she spent a few minutes checking her Twitter page and made fun of a Twitpic she received. That was much more exciting than the regular fumbling with the envelope. Maybe other awards shows will start using tablets to reveal winners as well.
What do you think? Is the new high-tech BET Awards 2011 the wave of the future with the Sprint tablets?
