HTC and Sprint have just launched the HTC EVO 4G, the first Android phone of its kind that will not only let you access WiMax networks at a much faster speed, it will also let you share your speedy connection with your laptop – or your friends.
The hardware is of quite obvious HD2 descent, but with Android onboard and some nice aesthetic tweaks, the EVO 4G takes on a life of its own. The handset is centered around a 480 x 800 4.3-inch TFT LCD, with a Snapdragon QSD8650 1GHz processor. It also has a 1.3-megapixel forward facing webcam, 1GB ROM and 512MB RAM and is powered by a 1500mAh Lithium Ion battery. No exact release dates or pricing have been revealed. The phone features HDMI out (though you’ll need an adapter for turning it into a TV-familiar HDMI plug), 802.11b/g WiFi, and an 8GB microSD card.
The EVO 4G is coming this summer to Sprint, but pricing has not yet been announced.
