Users who want to experience the fastest wireless data speeds may now do so. Sprint has girded up to offer the HTC Evo 4G starting from June 4, 2010. The new 3G phone enables its users to command capabilities they have never experienced before with a new video chat service from Qik. This phone features the latest version of the increasingly popular Android platform, Android 2.1, offering more than 35,000 apps.
The phone has a simultaneous voice and data capability in 4G and Wi-Fi coverage areas, enabling Web surfing and more while the conversation continues. The super-fast 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor ensures a smooth and quick movement within phone menus. For photography buffs, it flashes an 8.0 megapixel auto-focus camera with HD-capable video camcorder and a forward-facing 1.3 megapixel camera.
The new HTC Evo 4G comes with a built-in hotspot functionality allowing up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices to share the 3G or 4G experience on the go with a laptop, camera, music player, game unit, video player, or any other Wi-Fi enabled device. It embraces an integrated HD video capture with the ability to capture and share live video via Qik, Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. Apart from this, users can now easily watch video on an HDTV via an HDMI cable. The phone has its unique sense of Custom Web browser optimized for the 4.3 inch display and Sprint 4G speeds to deliver an unprecedented Internet experience.
“HTC Evo 4G is a fantastic 3G device, but when you use it in our growing 4G coverage area, it becomes a multimedia powerhouse. The Evo 4G experiences is much like going from TV to HDTV. But Evo has more than just an impressive list of features – it is also fun to use with remarkable gaming, video and web-browsing capabilities,” stated Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO.
The phone is accompanied with a handy kickstand built into the back, making it easy to watch videos on-the-go. In addition, its advanced Adobe Flash technology ensures that rich Internet content, such as embedded video and animation, are displayed the way they are meant to be seen. The two-way voice and video capability will be available as an upgrade to the preloaded Qik app on HTC EVO 4G. This will further enable conversational, interactive, real-time sharing between mobile devices or from mobile-to-desktop.
HTC Evo 4G is touted to be the newest version of the highly acclaimed HTC Sense user experience. This HTC Sense allows users to use Friend Stream to aggregate multiple social communication channels, including Facebook and Twitter into one organized flow of updates. Its ‘Leap’ thumbnail view lets users easily switch between home screen panels. It also has the ability to download new, interactive widgets, and a ‘polite’ ringer, which quiets the ringing phone once lifted up.
HTC Evo 4G will be available for $199.99 across all Sprint retail channels, including Sprint’s official website and national retail partners, RadioShack, Best Buy and Wal-Mart.
