After Leak: HTC Evo 4G vs. iPhone 2010

By Posted 20 Apr 2010, 11:35

Since the news broke yesterday over what is thought to be the first genuine 2010 model of the iPhone, there have been a number of arguments. Some of those were about Gizmodo who leaked the iPhone 4G / HD / Pro / 3GS-2 or whatever you want to call it. However, let us look at the lighter side of things- how the specs of this rumored concept phone compares to the HTC EVO 4G?

The screen on the EVO is 4.3-inches, whereas the screen on the 2010 iPhone is now smaller than the current iPhone 3GS. The HTC handset will run on Android 2.1, the iPhone will come with the new iPhone OS 4.0, which will come with more than 100 new features.

There is no news what processor Apple will use in the new iPhone, recent rumors suggest the one that is used for the ipad – but will be slowed down to conserve battery life. Speaking of the battery, the 2010 iPhone will have a 16 percent larger battery for increased performance.

The 1GHz Snapdragon CPU will run the show on the EVO, and we know that battery life will be much better than the current iPhone. This handset will also come with an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera. The iPhone 4G could have the same setup, but with a 5-megapixel camera instead.

On paper the two handset look to be on the same level, but the details will be in the software, but the iPhone will still have the advantage of the App Store. However, the HTC EVO 4G has the advantage of offering full 4G support.

Are you bothered if a device supports 4G wireless in 2010?

    "…but the iPhone will still have the advantage of the App Store."
    What about Android Market? As far as I know, the Android Market is way better than the App Store.

    Nothing will come close to beating the Iphone. Apple has budget that no one can compete with.

    HTC's army of Android, Windows Phone 7 and quite possibly WebOS (if HTC does indeed purchase Palm) phones are going to collectively crush Apple in the handset market over the next 2 to 5 years as long as a short sighted judge doesn't rule in favor of Apple and their vague patents.

    "the iPhone will come with the new iPhone OS 4.0, which will come with more than 100 new features."

    Many of those 100 new features have been on other devices for years. Those feature are new to the iphone, Apple is still playing catchup!

    The iPhone had its day and will continue to do well, however I don't expect it to continue to lead the industry for much longer. Three years ago the iPhone was the only game in town, two years ago that still remain true. It was only a year ago that Palm came out with a device that could give the iPhone a run for its money when it came to funtionality and ease of use, however that was no game changer and Palm lacked a decent App Store. This is no longer the case those manufacturers who embraced Google's Android OS. This summer the Telcos will have plenty of devices that will easily emulate the iPhone and their leader, the HTC Evo 4G, will crush the iPhone with its technology. No matter what Apple does they can't and won't be able to produce a 4G phone for ATT until ATT is able to provide the platform and we all know that won't happen until 2012. Even if VZ becomes a distributor of the iPhone they too won't be able to launch a 4G Lte smartphone until the latter part of 2011, essentially handicapping the iPhone for at least 12 to 18 months.

    ____Sorry Apple fans but this is one area Apple will have to take a back seat on and watch the competition chew away at their market share. The question is, does Apple have the humility and smarts to make the iPhone universal once its Exclusivity is up with ATT this June?

    On another note Apple's coffers are not large enough to take on the entire mobile industry even if they have ATT on their side. A good case in point was when the entire industry, which included their ally ATT agreed to create a consortiumfor Applications that would dwarf Apple's App. Store. Apple should heed to the headwinds that its exclusivity is facing.

    Well the EVO is here, and one more point goes to the iphone — Battery life is reportedly horrible on the EVO, especially if you use the 4G… y'know the MAIN SELLING POINT of the phone….
