Sprint Pushing Maintenance Updates to Android Phones
Sprint has begun distributing system updates to the HTC EVO 4G, Samsung Epic 4G, and HTC EVO Design 4G smartphones. The updates remove Carrier IQ's software, as well as fixes bugs, boosts performance, and resolves security issues. The updates are being distributed over the course of the next 10 days.
Hands-on with the new Samsung Galaxy S series phone, including the Captivate for AT&T, Fascinate for Verizon, Epic 4G for Sprint, and Vibrant for T-Mobile.
The Samsung Epic 4G brings a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to Sprint's 4G lineup and to Samsung's Galaxy S family. Does this super powered Android live up to its name?
Samsung's second foldable phone takes a different approach: instead of folding larger, it folds smaller, much like Motorola's new razr foldable. It's cheap for a foldable, but still quite pricey.

The US version of HTC's Hero S - just released for US Cellular - contains hardware supporting Sprint's unique network, including WiMAX, and CDMA in the ESMR (old iDEN) band, according to the FCC approval documents for the phone. Much like the Motorola Electrify for US Cellular is essentially the Photon with WiMAX disabled, HTC has done the same for the Hero S.
