Sprint HTC EVO 4G: Best 3G and 4G Device on the Market Video

By Posted 13 May 2010, 10:51

Recently Sprint held an event where they officially introduced the Sprint HTC EVO 4G, here they confirmed that the device will have a 4.3 inch display, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and run Android 2.1, however they also revealed some other details regarding the 4G handset.

The EVO 4G will allow video chat on either 3G or 4G networks, also they re-confirmed that the handset will be available on Sprint from June 4th for just $199. Another feature they revealed stated that voice and data transmissions can talk replace simultaneously, this will allow you to use voice chat whilst surfing the web.

If you check out the 20 minute video embedded at the end of this post you can see an extract from the event, this shows you video streaming capabilities when compared to other 3G smartphones, also there is a neat feature revealed which allows you scan an image and find its location via Google, all of this was possible whilst making a voice call.

Finally the most impressive feature for me was Layer AR, this uses the handset’s camera to display a realtime environment, using augmented reality it shows a virtual overlay on the display, which can show you where restaurants, train stations etc are.

The video also takes a dig at Apple, when viewing a website Flash content is displayed, they then say that their web experience shows “the real Internet”.

    So excited about this phone! The only disadvantage is knowing that in the near future there will be a better mobile device. And also, the EVO comes with android 2.1 and not 2.2. It's my understanding that the EVO comes with 1 GB of internal storage which limits the amount of apps that can be installed. If it is true that Android 2.2 OS will support installing apps in the SD Card, Does anyone know if and when SPRINT/HTC will support an update for Android 2.2.. Upgrading operating systems seem to be a leading problem when it comes to android mobile phones. I hope this issue isn't as prominent on the Sprint EVO
