HTC EVO Design 4G press photo revealed
Given its EVO moniker, this smartphone is more than likely heading to Sprint, although another name change could change that. The specifications of this Android 2.3 powered smartphone suggest it is more of a mid-range handset, much like the HTC EVO Shift 4G was. It features a 4-inch qHD display, a single-core 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM.
The EVO Design 4G has two cameras; a 5 megapixel camera is on the back while a front-facing 1.3 megapixel shooter is there to aid in your video chatting needs. It is still a little crazy to think that a handset with specs like this could be considered mid-range. However, when you consider the other offerings on Sprint such as the HTC EVO 3D, the Motorola Photon and the Samsung Epic Touch 4G it is easy to see how that is possible.

A mid-range phone. Sprint won't be releasing any high-end Android until next year to make way for the iPhone.

No not true, Sprint will be getting the Google Nexus Prime. They have the Samsung Nexus S 4G so naturally they will get the next Nexus phone especially since Google said they want their next Nexus to be on all carriers. If the iPhone does come out in October for Sprint this means that soon after that Sprint will indeed get the Google Nexus Prime. That will be before 2012 guaranteed. The Google Nexus Prime with its 1.5 GHz dual-core, Android Ice Cream Sandwich & 4.6” 720p HD screen will be too much for the next iPhone to handle!

Plus an incarnation toting a keyboard.

Hopefully your right. But it looks like Sprint is really into the iPhone.

Ohh you are 100% correct the iPhone WILL come to Sprint, but they won't forget Google & Android. Google & Android is their bread & butter, the iPhone will be the icing on the cake!

Because obviously the iPhone will be much better than this toss of a handset.

Let's admit it. I'm not saying all but most of the iPhone users are technically challenged. So they will choose an easy-to-use phone that even a 5 year old kid can use type of phone.

And the truth comes out....

you are confusing "easy to use" with "it just works"...Apple is a quality brand. HTC and Samsung only have a few products that come close to rivaling Apple's hardware and software build quality. I sell and repair phones for a living 95% of the phones I see are Android...Personally I don't want a phone I have to tinker with constantly to keep it performing up to par...which is why i am considering iPhone

The Miz is just a troll, he has no life and no purpose other than try to be annoying. He whines and complains when someone goes in an apple article and says something bad about apple but he just walks in to every article and talks crap about android. Ignore him, its the only way to he'll go away.

I also think that the contract with Iphone was too pretty much gain customers back to Sprint from carriers such as AT&T and Verizon Iphone users.
A buddy of mine works at Sprint and he is tired of hearing people coming in and asking about the Iphone. Interesting part about it thought is they are no Sprint custoemrs who are asking about the Iphone, its Verizon and AT&T.
So we will see what happens :)

Funny how I'm always at Verizon main store and I hear how people with sprint, come to Verizon because sprint service sucks, my brother owns sprint,when we talk he always have drop calls, even in his house,,,
9. ZayZay (Posts: 556; Member since: 26 Feb 2011)
Service varies in many areas. I am sure there is someone out there dropping Verizon calls also, you just happen to know someone always dropping the Sprint signal.
Also, your brother owns Sprint?

it really depends were you are at , every carrier has a dead zone even if on the coverage maps shows excellent..
and if you brother is having problems inside he can always get an airave! atleast sprint offers a solution

The guy is lying. Because if he has no sprint signal then the phone will roam off Verizon.
7. Mr.Mr.Upgrade (Posts: 425; Member since: 30 Aug 2011)
I didn't know they give awards for being the 3rd best cellphones, with sprint you don't only lose service, you lose respect,,,LOL, get ready to get bought out by Verizon
13. dacastrator (Posts: 232; Member since: 22 Sep 2011)
are you shot or something? 1st you said your brother owns sprint, so now your brother will sell sprint to verizon? is that what you mean?

I don't think it will be part of the Evo family because it doesn't have round home, menu, back, and search buttons on the bottom like the other three Evo devices.

I saw this device at an area meeting about 2 months ago.

I honestly think this is the Hero HD or Hero2 or whatever the new Hero is supposed to be called. I dont see them wasting the Evo name on this.

I was looking at the photo from my 3d, and i have to say, except from the circular touch buttons, its an identical clone O.o
