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.
