Sprint had a big ol’ get-together this afternoon and graciously invited Unwired View to come be a part of it. It was widely speculated that Sprint was planning on announcing the hugely-anticipated HTC Supersonic, and fortunately Sprint did not disappoint, officially announcing the HTC EVO 4G, the very first 4G handset.
While the EVO will not be available until at least this summer, as the device is in final development stages, we were at least able to get a good up-close and personal. We were allowed to handle the phone and take all the pictures we wanted, but navigating the phone was limited to just Sprint reps. I assume this was to prevent us from seeing parts of the EVO that were not working properly or solidly yet.
Sprint went into the event running on all cylinders, and certainly packed a lot of punches. Several times, the iPhone and Motorola Droid were made fun of: “Looks like this is one thing the Droid Doesn’t.”
So let’s take a closer look at the EVO 4G.
My first impression of the EVO 4G had me almost drooling. Sprint certainly is raising the bar on the competition, as not only is the phone the very first 4G out to market, it also has 4.3″ WVGA screen, 8 MP camera, HDMI output, Snapdragon processor, and new features such as YouTube HQ. And yet, with everything that’s packed into the device, it still feels pretty comfortable in my hands.
Look below at the gallery for pictures of the event.
