Sprint is pushing out software update 4.53.651.1 to the HTC EVO 4G
Man, it surely has been some time since we’ve heard about the HTC EVO 4G of late – especially when things like the HTC EVO 3D and EVO View 4G are making more headlines nowadays. Nevertheless, this ageless wonder still has some juice in the tank as yet another software update is making its impending arrival.

Sprint announced today that the still thriving HTC EVO 4G is getting its software updated to version 4.53.651.1 thanks to an over-the-air update being rolled out as we speak. Granted that it’s mentioned to be released in stages over the course of the next couple of weeks, some handsets owners are already starting to see it. Of course, if you simply can’t wait for it, then you can manually check for it by running the usual software update process.

With the new software, it features the following enhancements/fixes:

  • Integrated voice recognition accuracy with voice search and voice-to-text
  • Image size issue with contact transfer over Bluetooth
  • Images cut off in Picasa
  • Group contacts not in alphabetical order
  • Out of memory, Unable to send SMS

Although it’s nothing substantial and is mainly comprised of bug fixes, we’re still sure that handset owners are going to be pleased to see the handset getting its fair share of love.

Hey, at least the Evo 4G is getting a Viking funeral. Even when dying, they work the phone to the end, sending the phone to burn on a blazing funeral pyre in a boat floating out into the water. In contrast, look at what happened to the HP WebOS line - sent to the grave in a canvas bag, with a sprinkle of powdered lime on top, ala the end of the movie 'Amadeus'.... Me? Bitter? No....

I'm happy. Didn't notice the bugs, but whatever. Trying to keep this phone alive until HTC releases a true non 3 D successor. The EVO line has not advanced at all since this phone.
