Sprint and HTC make the EVO Design 4G official
It has been almost a month since the first press photo of the HTC EVO Design 4G was revealed. The Android Gingerbread device sports a 4-inch qHD display and is powered by a single-core 1.2GHz processor. On top of the Android platform of course is HTC’s Sense user interface. The back of the handset houses a 5 megapixel camera that can record video in 720p HD while a 1.3 megapixel shooter is perched on the front.
The EVO Design 4G was once known as the HTC Kingdom and was rumored to be called the Hero S for a while. Since this smartphone is an exclusive to Sprint, 4G speeds will be provided courtesy of their WiMax network. It is also the first handset bearing the EVO moniker to have global roaming capabilities. Given its specs the EVO Design 4G seems to be a mid-range alternative to the HTC EVO 3D and some other non-EVO devices such as the Samsung Epic 4G Touch and the Motorola PHOTON 4G.
For only $99.99 the HTC EVO Design 4G should be a solid choice if signing two years of your life away isn’t too much of a problem. The price is with a new two-year activation or a qualified two-year upgrade and after a $50 mail-in-rebate. Is anybody going to pick up the EVO Design 4G?
