So, I’ve blabbed and blabbed about the HTC Incredible but hardly made a keystroke about the HTC Evo 4G (“Supersonic”) coming to Sprint. Latest rumor is that this device launches on June 6th. It’s going to be sold at, of all places, Radio Shack. Don’t let the venue discourage you. This could win the “Android-of-the-year” award, if there were such a thing.
It’s basically the HTC Incredible plus a forward facing 1.3 MP camera for videoconferencing, an enormous 4.3″ screen, 4G WiMax data speeds and the ability to serve as a Wifi Router (which requires extra bucks per month, most likely). This launch could breathe some serious life into Sprint. Incidentally, if you mention to a Verizon rep that Sprint is launching 4G this summer and Verizon is lagging with a planned 2011 launch, the company line is that 4G technology isn’t ready for prime time yet.
P.S. If you missed all the fuss, Oprah Winfrey had an HTC Evo 4G in her hand on television the other day.
