HTC EVO 4G vs. iPhone: 2010 and video calling

The HTC EVO 4G was announced yesterday and will be using the Sprint Wimax network. The handset looks to have a few good features – well apart from its TFT LCD screen, which we discussed in a recent post. One feature that needs a mention is its 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, which is something that the iPhone 4G is rumored to be getting — making both smartphones ideal for video calling. We also understand that the iPhone OS 4.0 will come with video chat support.

We can understand why the EVO will have the ability for video calling, as it has that superior 4G Wimax network. However, the idea of the iPhone 4G having the same seems a little premature, considering that the AT&T 3G network is not the best, although the carrier is doing some major upgrades throughout 2010.

We all know about dropped calls with AT&T, this will then extend to dropped video calls, not great if you are conducting a video conference for business. We are certain that AT&T are working around the clock to keep iPhone customers happy, they do not want to lose them to Verizon — if and when they get the Apple smartphone.

Do you think video calling for the iPhone is important, or is there another feature that you would like to see first?
