CTIA 2010: Live Report
HTC EVO 4G - the first phone that will make use of the WiMAX network of the carrier. The network itself should also spread from coast to coast in 2010. We suspected that this will happen (we even expected more than one 4G phone), but did not believe that the device will be so hot. The combination of a 4.3-inch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, 8-megapixel camera, Android 2.1 and HTC Sense interface is definitely something impressive. More about the star of the CTIE WIRELESS 2010 show can be found in our Hands-on with the device, or in our article that gathers all the available information about the HTC EVO 4G as of now.
The other very, very interesting device also uses Android 2.1 and has a massive display - the Samsung Galaxy S, which got "unpacked". This smartphone will have extraordinary multimedia capabilities including DivX HD video playback and support for Xvid, FLAC and MKV. Besides, its 5MP camera will be able to shoot 720p clips.
There were some other Android phones that also got announced, which, while not as impressive as the above-mentioned ones, are also interesting in their own ways. The Motorola i1 will use the iDEN network of Sprint and will sport resistance for rain, shock, vibration and water sprays. This won't be your typical Android phone, as you see. The Dell Aero on the other hand will be offered by AT&T, which says that this will be the lightest phone with this platform. Cricket will get the Kyocera Zio M6000, which has some pretty decent specs like a 3.5-inch WVGA screen, 3.2MP camera, 600MHz processor and should cost less than $220 without a contract.
So this summarizes the interesting things that managed to grip our attention at CTIA WIRELESS 2010. As you might guess, we are quite eager to get our hands on these devices as soon as possible (but this time, for longer) so that we can write some previews, reviews, whatever may be and, of course, share our thoughts with you.

i agree with camjurgz! Today was supposed to be the release day for the nexus one for verizon! damn they are lagging. whats up with that?

Haven't you seen all the problems with the nexus one??? You should get something else like he drips eris or something. Verizon might not announce (or later, launch) the nexus one if it's still plagued with problems that google and htc apparently overlooked when designing or building this. nd I think the HTC desire would be better.

I feel bad for T-Mobile. They show up with a. Simple HSDPA+ netbook or whatever. The HD2 launches today, and I wonder how many people are going to regret buying it when windows phone 7 or whatever comes out or when they see what andriod and win-mo devices are better. But for now, the HD2 has it's day in glory. I wonder how many people in my city are driving or walking to t-mobile stores today to get this phone, regardless of the fact that there's a foot of snow on the ground in places and cold as hell. BIG SNOWSTORM.

This is just sad. 5 new things for AT&T, 3 for Sprint, and Verizon ties with a prepaid for new things coming out. It's starting to feel like years ago when Verizon had half as many handsets as it's competitors. I just read an article talking about why there was no announcement about either the Nexus1 or the Incredible at CITA, and most of the people leaving comments were fed up with how Verizon is so sercretive about what's coming out. If it were really a case of not doing it because their competitors would try to beat them to the punch on their upcoming offerings, then why aren't AT&T and Sprint also being so hush hush. Then to top it all off, when whatever they're keeping under wraps finally comes out, it usually falls flat. Maybe if they got some input from their customers on what they want, Verizon would be able to sell more units and keep them from defecting to their competition. Verizon, this isn't the Manhattan Project, it's cell phones! I'm only ticked because I'm about a month away from my NE2 and I don't want to go down the same road of renewing and then 31 days later they come out with something that is better suited to me. Let's not start to have phone releases end up like the Android 2.1 update. Maybe I'll hold off on getting that smartphone. (Steps off the soap box to go have a beer)
