--------------- website quotes ----------------

"Sprint just dropped the hard news: the phone will be dubbed the HTC EVO 4G, will be released this Summer and it's easily the best specced phone we've ever witnessed."

"the 4G smoking HTC EVO 4G is taking things to the next level where no device has truly attempted to go"

"The floor was rocked by Sprint, which showcased the HTC EVO 4G - the first phone that will make use of the WiMAX network of the carrier. The network itself should also spread from coast to coast in 2010. We suspected that this will happen (we even expected more than one 4G phone), but did not believe that the device will be so hot. The combination of a 4.3-inch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, 8-megapixel camera, Android 2.1 and HTC Sense interface is definitely something impressive. More about the star of the CTIE WIRELESS 2010 show can be found in our Hands-on with the device, or in our article that gathers all the available information about the HTC EVO 4G as of now."

"Interestingly, it sounds like concurrent data and voice use might be possible for the first time on CDMA carrier in this way (killing AT&T's well-advertised differentiator)"

"We got to play with the phone for an all-too-brief matter of minutes, but everything we saw was frankly breathtaking."
