HTC EVO 4G makes its way to the floor with supersonic speed

HTC EVO 4G makes its way to the floor with supersonic speed
Well guys, it's not called the Supersonic, but is still a 4G smartphone by HTC. Sprint announced the first ever 4G Android handset, the HTC EVO 4G, to be available this Summer. Bearing many similarities with the HD2 (to be available soon with T-Mobile), the HTC EVO 4G is an even better device. It still has that massive 4.3-inch LCD screen and 1GHz Snapdragon processor, but also raises the bar by offering a total of 1 GB ROM and 512 MB RAM. But wait, it's not over yet. The HTC EVO 4G will bring forth an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture capabilities, plus an additional front-facing 1.3-megapixel one for video calls (which we guess will be usable thanks to the 4G connection) - sweet! Keep in mind there will also be a 3G module inside the EVO, so that you can take advantage of the carrier's 3G network, when 4G is out of your reach.

Unlike the HD2, the HTC EVO 4G will be running Android 2.1 with the manufacturer's acknowledged Sense UI. This being the first Android 4G smartphone, it means that developers will now be able to write some quite data-intensive apps for this smartphone (and hopefully the others that will follow). For the purpose, Sprint has also announced a 4G developer guide that will explain the ins and outs of utilizing 4G hardware and software, the front facing cam and the HTC EVO 4G's HDMI output.

Sa... sa... sa... SUPERSONIC!! Sa... sa... sa... SOLD!!! "Quietly Brilliant" my ass.. that announcment sounded like a SONIC BOOM!.. instantly blowing away any smartphone on the market. This is truly a Superphone... no wonder Apple suing.

Wait a minute wasn't you going HD2, and TMobile? ROFL......I agree with you here....who'd want an incredible or any other phone. Too bad no key board, but TP3, and Win7 is the next HTC Sprint Sonic Boom.

haha i gotta agree with both of you... this kills any existence of what we know of a cell phone as of this day. I will most definitely be first in line. And sprint has the everything data plan... ohh boyyy. I think sprint is actually making a move for at&ts place.

Its been my plan all along... chk my previous posts. WP7S will have to go 1 generation before Ill get into it.. kind of like the 1st yr of a new production car. Dont want to beta test. btw... this is the song Ive had stuck in my head all day... Sprint needs to license this for commercials and change that Evo name back to SUPERSONIC! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_tIlVT1iDg

You did mention that you wanted an HD2, and Sprint does needs to market this like Apple did the I phone; from now until the summer. They have the momentum with this buzz all over wall street, and the news Media. It would be a shame not to follow through, and let the public know about it through mass media blitzing like Apple did.

I meant.. my plan was to get HD2 AND SUPERSONIC. Theres no way for Sprint to fumble this one... even if the do ZERO advertising.. the phone is THAT HOT. I just hope they get the WiMax on in NYC before this comes on so everyone can get in on some of that video conferencing love. Also... Jobs and his team must be scrambling right now to get a front facing camera on their next Iphone... to bad its on pos ATT.

Ya I just ordered my HD2!!! This phone looks pretty amazing as well. Just sucks that once I get my HD2 and you guys get your 4G it will be outdated and we'll want the next shiny device, and I'll buy it!!!!!!

It does look nice but put next to the Samsung Galaxy S, the screen will be trumped. I can't wait for a comparison review.
