Way less than the sum of its parts

I'm willing to offer a prediction given that it's an Android handset made by HTC: it's going to be way less than the sum of its parts.

And what are they going to do if Clear switches over to LTE? It's not going to be like the Cingular 3G mess, is it?
oh shut up!

Just enjoy the damn phone
Means long term evolution. Now...what does that tell us about the engineering of it? NOTHING. It's a concept. ATT won't go "LTE" until 2012, and verizon can't risk blowing thier "map for that" because sprint has a 2 year head start on "4g" Also, sprin...
Oh my god, what an ignorant comment. Not surprising at all, just ignorant.
Why would Clear switch to LTE? WIMAX is performing very well. The partnerships also have deeper pockets than those of the LTE group. LTE shows that the EU and especially Ericsson will never support any standard not created in Europe. Even though WIMAX...
Umm, refresh my memory, what do you mean by "Cingjular 3G mess"?

QUOTES from respected industry sites...

"Sprint Evo 4G, now at the top of the Android mountain. Sheer domination. There's really no other way to describe it."
- Androidcentral.com

"Sprint changed the landscape for Android devices by announcing the HTC EVO 4G, a handset whose specs make it the top handset, cross-platform, on the market today. The EVO 4G one-ups almost every other handset in the Android platform."

- Boy Genius Report

"Everything that relied on the 4G network, from pulling down Youtube videos to browsing, seemed to clip along at breakneck speeds. While it could very well be due to the fact that there aren't that many devices on Sprint's 4G network just yet, this thing was simply soaring.'

- Mobilecrunch.com

"The HTC EVO 4G is a monster of a ...
Here's the sticky part. These reviews will not have any effect on the normal consumer. You and I know that this is a device which is at the top of the game. Unfortunately, the iphone is still living the modern day Razor craze. The Razor is not even cl...

is this true

I heard rumors of this device working as a hotspot mifi type system to connect up to 8 wifi devices to it so it will work as a router type deal anyone else hear that..
Yep, that's what I've heard. Now whether or not it will work with the 3g side we will have to wait and see. There is a cap on the 3g, so not quite sure how that would work...

I wonder how much it'll cost

but it doesn't really matter how much bcuz I'm getting it regardless!! I am actually excited about this phone
I'm assuming something at or slightly higher than 199 (after rebates, with new contract). That seems to be the sticking price point for phones.. though being the first wimax phone, and having a screen like that.. 299 is feasible imo. It all depend...

According to the Specs at Phone Scoop, this phone won't have 24 Bit Color NOR Wireless N....

My only question is, with such a rockin' & technologically advance phone, how could HTC miss these two important feats? It'll be years before my small city gets WiMax (although I work in an area that is supposidly launching May 5th according to my IAE) but when I get home... I'd love to connect to my router on my existing Wireless N network. Especially because the wireless N signal reaches all the way to the garage (where I chill), but when I put it in G mode it doesn't get out even to the Patio, so having this feature would be awesome for me.
They were 2 busy wiping the floor with the competition with all the features they did include. Keep in mind the Nexus one only has 16bit color and the display is phenominal and so does my Touch Pro 2 and movies look better on the TP2 then they do on m...

Damm this phone is a beast!

Im not a big fan of andriod but I will be getting this asap!!! 8mp camera are you serious? The newest sense UI! To top it off this phone is so sleek and thin. Damm I think im in love Cool Sprint 4g here I come! So the rumors about the Supersonic were true Wink And just a few months ago Sprint was talking about how there would be no wimax phone till the end of 2010! Surprised Leave it 2 the now network 2 bring 2 bring it 2 you now baby! Cool
Ever since my friend at Sprint's engineering informed me of this device, I have set my money aside for this. I am very excited for Sprint and the history that has been made.
I think Ill be making my way to the front of the line for the release of this badboy! So far its looking to be everything I want and more. I mean it has a hdmi port for crying out loud thats sick! My Touch Pro 2 is in need a replacement! Cool
What is it about Android you don't like? I've only been using Android since 9am 3/23. So far I'm ok with it.

"Another Shame for T-mobile"

Surprised Its incredible... every time T-mobile have a good handset another carrier smash it. HTC HD2 vs HTC Evo 4G. The other shame is the network. Here in Puerto Rico T-mobile still frozen in EDGE. A local puertorrican carrier "Open mobile" already launched its own 3g network. Im withh Tmo, I wanna cry!

bad idea

This phone is the first phone that has everything I wanted. Wont it be hard for Sprint to sell any other high end phone after this comes out? What more can they do other than make the phone thinner and have a better battery life?
How about one that works on WiMax and LTE?
So you finally have everything in a phone and you're complaining? LMAO

Very Happy

Best thing that will ever happen to me is when I cop this phone lol.
LOL, thats kinda sad, but I'm def. excited for it - being a Sprint rep. I hope we can get it ASAP - the news release said we should but we'll see...

The Game Just Changed

Sprint has just changed the game but than again, Sprint always come out with something innovative than they seem to drop the ball. Now lets see what lame commercials they have to advertise this beast

I will be test driving this baby tho
Sprint is poised to really change their image here.. I hope their marketing team is up to it.

I wonder what Verizon has coming???

I'll tell ya, what ever they come out with it better sure as hell make a pretty big splash, otherwise this baby will blow it away and Sprint's market share will be on the rise.
bigger bills and the same slow data speeds is what verizon has coming!! Very Happy
Verizon isn't announcing a 4g phone till mid to late 2011, so i don't really see them announcing anything bigger than this. Now when they get 4g sprint will already have more devices.
Verizon doesn't have a 4G Android coming, that's for sure!

Mar 23, 2010, 7:36 PM

History has been made.

Another milestone in the wireless industry has now been met. 4G has become a reality and now a handheld device to go with it. You have got to love this technology and the carrier that brought it to life.

No other can claim this fame.
Except WiMax is not 4G. Look up the standards.

Mar 23, 2010, 3:57 PM

Bow down before it's beauty

Look at the phone, look at the provider, now proceed to bow to the awesome.
Not too long ago I recall saying I would probably never leave Verizon; it looks like never has come.
This is indeed an awesome looking phone. Gratz to you guys Very Happy

Is this a different phone than the supersonic or is this a more high end phone? I think its pretty cool that the phone can act as a mobile hotspot right out of the box.
same device just different name if you google supersonic this phone pulls up.. will be the best thing ever wait and see..
