Sprint's marketing campaigns over the past few months have focused on the fact that the carrier was the first to launch a 4G network in the U.S. Building on that, the company has focused on the various things you can do with a 4G connection that weren't possible (or at least weren't very usable) without a fourth generation high-speed mobile broadband connection. In keeping along with the "first" concept, Sprint announced the HTC EVO 4G—the world's first 3G/4G Android smartphone, would be available on their network. Although the EVO 4G may no longer be the only 3G/4G handset around, it is... Read more...

A video of an upcoming high-end smartphone from HTC has leaked. Details and pictures of the upcoming smartphone known as the HTC Desire HD have leaked, though nothing has been officially confirmed by the smartphone manufacturer. Despite no official word from HTC, we already know quite a bit about this upcoming phone. For starters, the Desire HD appears to be similar to the high-end HTC EVO 4G but for GSM-based carriers. The Desire HD will feature a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen and will reportedly run on Google Android 2.2 with a 1GHz processor. Other specs include an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED... Read more...
America's "first 4G phone" is about to become America's second official Froyo phone. According to a release published by Sprint, the HTC EVO 4G will be granted official access to Android 2.2 as early as tomorrow, which makes it the first carrier-locked phone in America to get the update that Google has had ready for a month now. We noted back in our Android 2.2 review that this version of Android was the best yet, adding support for Flash in the browser, a Mobile Hotspot option and faster all-around performance. But as now, the only phone that has been given an official download is the Nexus One,... Read more...
Last week, Verizon Wireless and Motorola introduced the new DROID X Smartphone as part of the carrier’s effort to rival Sprint’s EVO 4G. Not content to let Verizon Wireless and Motorola get all of the hype, Sprint released a statement about the upcoming Android 2.2 upgrade for its HTC EVO 4G smartphone. In a post on the Sprint News Blog, a Sprint employee wrote, “As work on finalizing the software is under way, Sprint expects to launch Android 2.2 in the near future…. HTC EVO 4G will receive the 2.2 update.” With the newest version of Android, customers will get an... Read more...
Sprint's launch of the HTC EVO 4G has led to a huge increase in attention for WiMAX as a whole. It's America's first 4G phone, and it also happens to be one of the most impressive Android devices to date. With its massive display, 3G/4G support, powerful CPU and Sense overlay, it's been an easy choice to pick up for those living in 4G areas and not bothered by the $10/month surcharge for accessing WiMAX. But if there could be one complaint, it would be that the EVO 4G was only available in a single color. That's right: just black. But now, Best Buy is giving the world another option with a white...

HTC's EVO 4G isn't just America's only (and first) 4G handset, it's also the hottest selling Sprint phone of all time. Before this weekend's launch, Sprint's Pre and Instinct held this record of best selling launch-day phone, but now the EVO 4G has taken the crown. Some might say it's no real surprise given the hype surrounding it, but we're not so sure that HTC and Sprint don't deserve even more credit for the accomplishment. The EVO 4G is sort of a tough sell; it requires $10 more per month for a data plan compared to every other smartphone, and there are only a handful of 4G areas. Despite the... Read more...
We're not surprised that someone managed to root HTC's EVO 4G smartphone, we're just taken aback by how quickly it was done. After all, you can't even walk into a Sprint store and pick up an EVO 4G just yet. But hey, that's the sort of risk your run when you hand out pre-release phones to developers ahead of launch, which is what Google did during its Google I/O conference last week. Not that Google probably minds too much. With the exception of slapping famed Android modder "Cyanogen" on the wrist (via a cease and desist letter) for bundling proprietary apps with his third party ROMs, Google has... Read more...
If you've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of faster mobile broadband networks and gadgets, we have some good news for you. The next generation of high-speed Internet services and devices could arrive faster than initially expected. AT&T and Verizon Wireless are ramping up plans to speed up their networks and deliver more advanced devices as early as the end of this year, possibly in time for the holiday season. Since there aren't a lot of new customers that are looking to get a cell phone, most wireless carriers are focusing on data services and other offerings for growth. AT&T plans... Read more...
4G smartphones have been around; HTC made one for Russia's Yota carrier around two full years ago. But 4G as a whole is new to America, and while just a few cities have the service now, even those within a 4G area could only use mobile data devices to take advantage. Sprint and HTC announced the EVO 4G back at the CTIA trade show in March, promising America's 4G smartphone on an Android-based device that is seen by many as the iPhone 3GS killer. Tonight in an event in New York City, both Sprint and HTC finally announced the final details surrounding the phone. Namely, a price and release date,... Read more...
Just a few short months ago, Sprint proudly announced that Google's first smartphone (that they called their own) was coming to The Now Network. That would mean that the Nexus One had plans to be sold on all four major U.S. networks. Shortly after, Verizon (or Google) decided to pull the plug, insisting that users instead focus on the HTC Incredible for their Android fix. Now, Sprint has done something similar, suggesting that the upcoming HTC EVO 4G will be the go-to smartphone on Sprint's network. Announced this week, Sprint decided to reverse course and not ever offer the Nexus One, with a company... Read more...
While announcing its first-quarter results, WiMAX carrier Clearwire said that it plans to offer two dual-mode 3G/4G handsets by the end of this year. One of the new handsets will be made by Samsung, while the other will be made by HTC. Clearwire didn't offer up a lot of details concerning the new phones, but it did say that the Samsung phone will run on Android and will be "optimized for heavy video and video communications use." Additionally, both phones will feature Wi-Fi. It's possible that the upcoming 3G/4G handset from HTC is the EVO 4G which has already been announced by Sprint and targeted... Read more...
