HTC Evo 4G
CTIA Wireless Convention 2010 is hold these days in Las Vegas at the Convention Center and an important announcement has been made: Sprint presented the first 4G phone, HTC Evo.

As we supposed, the mobile phone is an Android based model and the specifications are top-notch.

Let’s begin the top-notch features with the display: a 4.3-inches TFT touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The display features pinch-to-zoom and tactile feedback.

The processor is a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon(QSD8650) and the operating system is, at least now, Android v2.1. The internal memory has: 1GB ROM and 512MB RAM. Phone will ship with a 8Gb microSD card and supports up to 32Gb(microSD cards).

At the back an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and double led flash will help you to forget the digital camera devices, because it is capable of even shooting HD videos at 720p. To complete this, a HDMI port is available in case you want to watch the media content on higher resolution devices. Also, a 1.3 megapixel camera is near the display.

HTC Evo has a built in kickstand and 3.5 mm stereo headset port so you can watch your media files quite comfortable. FM Radio is also included.

The connectivity is flawless: 3G and 4G (10 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload) is available along Bluetooth 2.1 or Wi-Fi. Another crazy feature is 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability which means that the phone connects(same as a router)up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices. Gps is also available and Sprint Navigation application will give you turn-by-turn driving directions and 3D maps.

HTC Sense user experience is updated and now features Friend Stream(a tool that integrates Facebook, Twitter and more into a single flow of updates). Other known applications are: Google Search, Google Maps, Google Talk, Gmail, YouTube or Sprint application(Sprint TV and NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile). In case you want more Android Market awaits you with at least 30,000 apps.

It is rumored that HTC Evo will be released by Spring this summer(2010), but a price has not been revealed yet.

    Never mind the fact that Sprint advises you to NOT download/use Advanced Task Killer on the EVO. It already has an app manager built in. ATK will suck the life out of your battery faster than any of the apps you were allegedly using
