HTC EVO 4G Out Now
Ready for the first 4G phone Sprint users? The time has come– today is June 4th, and you know what that means— the HTC EVO 4G is here!
For those who don’t know why this is a HUGE day, here are a couple of features of the phone that may peak your interest:
- 4.3 inch multitouch screen with a 480×800 resolution in a thin, sleek design
- 8 megapixel camera with flash and support to shoot 720p HD video with a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera– for you guessed it, mobile video chatting!
- Android 2.1 with the latest and greatest version of HTC Sense as well a 1 GHZ Snapdragon processor in here that should keep everything on the phone itself nice and fast.
- 3.5 mm headphone jack, HDMI port, and a kickstand for media playback
And of course this is the first US phone that offers built-in 4G. This gives you not only faster internet speeds, but the EVO also has the ability to turn this into a mobile hotspot (like the MiFi and Overdrive), and share the 4G (or 3G if 4G isn’t available yet where you live) with up to 8 (!) other users at once (though this will run you an extra $29.99 a month, its still cheaper than the $59.99 a month needed for the MiFi or Overdrive). The EVO 4G costs $199.99 on a new 2 year contract with a data plan and Sprint’s $10 a month “Premium Data” add-on.
So, who out there is heading over to your local Sprint, Best Buy or Radio Shack to pick one up? And if you already have, what you think of it? Let us know in the comments.
And for those of you with the patience to not be the first to have one, you can head on over to Sprint’s site and order one for yourself right now.
