HTC EVO 4G

HTC EVO 4G

Thought the HTC HD2 was awesome? Well, this is the new definition of ‘monster mobile phone’. Let me go straight to the highlights:

  1. It runs Android 2.1 which still isn’t all that common even though it’s been on the Nexus One for a while.
  2. It’s got an updated version of the Sense UI seen on other HTC smartphones.
  3. 4.3″ 480×800 display
  4. 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
  5. 512 MB RAM
  6. 8 Mega Pixel Stills Camera, with up to 720p video recording
  7. A surprising 1.3MP front camera
  8. HDMI out (with some adapter though)
  9. 1500 mA battery
  10. Plus the usual suspects, WiFi, Compass, GPS etc.

It also works on Sprint’s 4G Network, something that’s in the works here in New Zealand and in operation in some places around the globe. So it’s a super phone, with super specs on a super fast network… what more could you possibly ask for? Never has there been a device with all these killer features bundled into one. The features on this device should work well given that most of them have been tried and tested on ‘guinea pig’ devices like the Omnia HD. We’ll wait and see if this monster lives up to it’s hype in summer…which is winter down here…

In the mean time, you can see more info and drool over this eye candy over at Sprint’s Website. Samsung also has something…Whilst you’re at it, our buddy just unleashed the I9000 Galaxy S. This equally featured beast will also run Android 2.1, have 720p video recording and a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor. Samsung also threw Bluetooth 3.0 and a 4″ 480×800 Super AMOLED display into the mix. It pretty much matches the Evo 4G and similarly, there’s no infomation on pricing and availability.

It’s going to be a snappy year this.
