Sprint and HTC hosting a get together on April 4

Sprint and HTC hosting a get together on April 4
HTC and Sprint have sent out invitations for an April 4th event in NYC to announce their "latest collaboration."  We don't have much more info here, but hopefully we'll learn some more about the mysterious HTC One X variant for Sprint, which has been called many things from the Jewel to the Jet to the EVO HD LTE.  We previously reported a rumored June 10th launch date for the phone, and an early April announcement seems plausible.  We'll of course keep you updated as we find out more!

Please let the Evo 2X that they're going to announce be the quad-core edition, instead of LTE, with a massive battery

Why not just the Evo X, where does the 2 come from?

I hope they go for my MS Paint-made logo, personally (as seen in my profile icon.)

Because we had the Evo 4G, then the Evo 3D, so now the Evo 2X!

Bad news it's realy an HTC iPhone One X, just like the iPhone, no removable battery, no expansion slots, So it's an HTC iCrap iPhone. I'll past on this iCrap. Because from my understanding, as a Mac user and owner of everything Mac, this is the MAIN reason why people, including myself never bother with an iCrap iPhone. Although Apples ecosystem is better as far as quality is concern. However I was OK, comfortable with Android ecosystem. However if the new trend in smartphone are going to be like the iPhone, with no expansion slots and removable battery. Why would I chose to continue with Android, it's a no brainier that being force chose between all the non removable no expansion slot phone in the up coming market, Lots of Mac owner with Androids device will jump onto the iPhone bandwagon. After all the ecosystem is better every which way. However in a perfect world I WANT to stay with Android phone, because of the removable battery and expansion slots. I don't care what anyone says, I need that extra battery in my pocket. I have all my family and friends on that dam iCrap iPhone, running around like a chicken with it's head cut off looking for an outlet all over the city. I don't want to be one of those headless chickens kind of people. However if I were force, then I will gladly be that headless chicken looking for a plug for my iPhone 5. Can you write about this new trend, and do you see a movement from Android to Apple because of this? Thank you.

Sadly HTC no longer interest me anymore. Evo 4g was good, Evo 3d was good, but something about Samsung and Motorola that has made me leave HTC out of my future purchases.

I love HTC quality and consistency. But take the trackball off the Nexus One from 2009 and you're holding the form factor for all of HTC's soon to be released phones. No progression in design equals boring no matter how they increase the specs inside the phone. Still better than Moto, but I'm really eyeing a Galaxy variant or the Sony S if I jump ship.

Take off the trackball and the capacitive keys from the Nexus One and you get the Galaxy Nexus, by your logic. I'd say that HTC's design has changed quite a bit. The One X has a design that honestly hasn't been done before on Android.

The Nexus One is still one of the most beautifully crafted phones in existence, in my opinion, and is definitely the best looking Nexus phone thus far.

I hope it is the next EVO. I think they will do the same as they did 2 years ago. Which is have the best set of products built into it. For example to have the S4 processor. (considering that the quad core doesn't work well with LTE). That they have been boosting their 3g network where they will have LTE. This should be a major flagship phone. Super LCD is the best HTC will have put out. The front facing video camera is another notch up. The S4, 720p display is still fairly new so I could see how they could still showboat this. On top of it, being LTE is like when Sprint had the EVO og. Low amount of network but everyone still bought into it. Carriers dont have a major 4g hog as of right now. (I don't consider hspa+ to be 4g its simply 3g upgraded so like a 3.5) So having a flagship device being HTC isn't a bad idea. I bet they have major sales regardless if they do the S4 or Quad core though. Very unlikely it will be Quad though.

I disagree with what they did two years ago. The original Evo seemed like a godsend at the time, but in retrospect, HTC didn't exactly use the most premium set of materials. Sure, the processor may have been 1 gHz, but it was a 65nm S1, which paled in comparison to contemporaries in the Galaxy S and iPhone 4. Sure, the screen was a large 4.3 inches, but it was TFT, with a mere 65k color support and poor contrast ratios. Sure, the camera was 8MP, but it was universally criticized as inferior to those same contemporaries. I hope they get it right this time, because HTC may not have too many shots left if they get it wrong.

Unfortunately they got it wrong again, Because device is being built without expansion slots and no removable battery??? However from my understanding, as a Mac user and owner of everything Mac, this is the MAIN reason why people, including myself never bother with an iCrap iPhone.

I am a little jealous of Sprint and ATT getting this phone in S4 or Tegra 3 versions (very similar specs). Oh well maybe the Droid Fighter coming to Verizon will sport one of those chips and I will have Moto's answer to the One X.

I'm a little sure that the next phones from Moto will have Intel Inside, including the "Droid Fighter".

Why do people always say that HTC's phone all have the same design, with no variation. Have any of you really taken a look at Samsung as well. Their phones are the same way, plus they feel all cheaply made and plasticy. I have two favorite brands that always make high quality products, and include features that few others usually have and that's Nokia and HTC. Since Nokia really doesn't make cdma based phones, I stick with HTC from back in the windows mobile area where they made it worth having a windows based device to begin with. Of course I have BB's and Samsungs, but HTC keeps me coming back for the quality and usability of the product and software. Can't wait for a new HTC on Sprint, but if the Samsung is that more awesome and to my liken I will have that in my possession ASAP.

I REALLY wish Sprint would offer the HTC One S. I just really like the size of a 4.3" screen. I also think the One S is a bit more sleek. It would also be nice if they offer this for Wimax instead of LTE since their LTE service would EXTREMELY limited for some time. I for one have been generally satisfied with Wimax perfomance. I would obviously like to have LTE, but I can wait until its more established on sprints network.

We all know that it's going to be a variant of the HTC One, but we don't know which processor it will come with, what kind of 4G, our Sprint's name for it. I'm sure that it might have LTE (so it might come with the S4 processor) and I believe that it might be called "HTC Evo 4G LTE" or "HTC Evo One (to be constant with the HTC One)" I might be interested in this device if it doesn't cost an arm & a leg to purchase off contract.

I hope they can explian why more Android device is being built without expansion slots and no removable battery?
