Sprint-HTC event (EVO ONE announcement): Liveblog

Today is the big day for all Sprint and HTC lovers, as the companies have organized a get-together, where they'll be announcing their latest collaboration. Now, it doesn't take a genius to tell that these guys will probably introduce us to Sprint's version of the HTC One X - a device that some believe to be called EVO ONE. According to the available unofficial information, the phone will remain true to the One X in terms of specs, being equipped with a 4.7" HD screen and 8MP camera. What would be interesting to see, though, is whether the EVO ONE will have LTE and a dual-core processor, or a Tegra 3 SoC and no LTE. Our guess is it will have LTE and Snapdragon S4, similarly to AT&T's version, but we hope we'll know for sure soon enough.


Stay tuned, guys and gals, as the event is going to begin at: 5:30PM Eastern, 4:30PM Central and 2:30PM Pacific Time!

The htc one x will be out shadowed by the foray of phones that are about to land. This is just the beginning.

why not just go ahead and do it already? If you are going to choose your carrier based on if they get a phone or not, then just go to verizon anyway because Im sure you'll just get excited about something else in 2 weeks.

The carrier's data plan should be more important that the phone. Sprint doesn't have the best selection but their unlimited data is a no-brainer. Same price as Verizon with $40 voice +$30 for only 4gig data +$10 for text.

Bio if you look at the pic at the top of the page, you can see the kickstand. It is red in color and is more towards the middle of the phone. Will

There are plenty of phone cases that have kickstands of their own.

HD calling quality, I like it! Imagine a feature of a phone being geared towards actually being a "phone" lol EDIT: I also work for Sprint and didn't know a damn thing either lol

The Rezound and other newer HTC phones all have a really good signal strength. But THIS IS Sprint we are talking about.

I remember the days when I almost went to Sprint for the original EVO - which was an awesome phone at that time....It is in the best interests of both HTC and SPRINT to ensure that this phone is a success.

htc's success is deeply rooted to the evo. many mah devices followed after it.

Just think, had I kept my Sprint contract I would be, more than likely and happily, upgrading to this beauty. But, alas, Verizon can't get rid of me that easily. Congrats' to all my Sprint brothers; may your children also own EVOOOOOOs.

Everything I expected to see, and a bit more :) the design could be a bit better, and the name is a bit weird (hoped for HTC Evo X) but still, as soon as I switch to sprint this is gonna be in my hands, I'm kinda tired of tmobile.

According to other reports the HTC One DOES NOT have a 2000mah battery. The Motorola Maxx still has the best battery but it's only on Verizon.

If anyone really thinks a photographer would trade in their pro SLR camera for a camera phone, you need help.
