The original HTC EVO 4G was undeniably a hit on Sprint and it was one of HTC's most iconic phones ever. For that reason expectations are high for a sequel, and with that we have the HTC EVO 3D. But rather than just giving it a spec bump HTC has gone in an entirely different direction with the phone, introducing a 3D screen and a 3D camera to the device. How good is the 3D? Is the 3D worth it? Are these just gimmicks or is the EVO 3D a worthy successor on Sprint's lineup? These are just some of the questions that need to be answered. Check out our full review to find out.
Way back in the way back of December 2010 I wrote a post detailing the things I hoped to see from HTC in the new year. Well, it's been six months since that post aired, so it's time for us to take a look and see exactly how HTC has fared. As you'll notice, some things have come true, some things haven't (yet).
The oft-leaked HTC Kingdom has received FCC approval, clearing the way for a release in the United States. It has a WiMax radio, which means that it's totally headed for Sprint, but we knew that already because a leaked ROM said so.
See that? It's a trademark from HTC for the term "HTC EVO View 4G". The description talks about mobile phones and smartphones but don't pay attention to the description; most of HTC's trademark descriptions sound the same anyway. What's more important is the fact that this seems to confirm the rumors that Sprint is planning on releasing the HTC Flyer in the United States with magical 4G WiMax powers.
To stay in the Android race, Sprint has gone back to it's EVO roots and teamed with HTC to deliver the HTC EVO Shift 4G, a smaller version of the EVO with a full QWERTY keyboard. Can Sprint and HTC recapture the magic, or does the sequel fail to live up to the original? Find out after the jump.
The charge, previously limited to customers that bought one of Sprint's 4G phones, will now be tacked on to 3G smartphone users as well. Existing customers are safe until their either upgrade or activate a new phone.
Avast, ye 4G desiring mateys, the HTC EVO Shift 4G went on sale yesterday. For $149.99 you can pick up HTC and Sprint's 4G WiMax-enabled slider phone. Best Buy Reward Zone Customers have had the phone since Thursday, but that doesn't matter, because you can get the phone today.
We've been seeing leaks of this phone forever, but today Sprint finally came out and made it official: the HTC EVO Shift 4G is really real. The phone has made an appearance on their website and will go on sale January 9th for $149.99.
