We all assumed that the HTC Supersonic would be announced today at CTIA — well we were right that the device was coming, but we all got the name wrong. The first 4G WiMAX handset from Sprint is called the HTC EVO 4G, and will be released in the summer 2010.
Engadget has managed to get some hands-on time with the new device and states that it is the best handset they have seen when it comes to specs. They begin by saying that it is obvious that is has descended from the HD2, but with Android OS running things, the experience is a whole lot better.
This first WiMax 4G handset comes with a large 4.3-inch display and the ever-popular 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The 1GB of memory and 512MB RAM is more then enough to keep things running fast and smooth.
The addition of an 8-megapixel camera as well as a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera offers user that little bit more. Android OS 2.1 is running things; this is complemented with HTC’s Sense UI.
All these features are great, but it is the 4G technology that really sets the Evo apart from other handsets. Looks as though the Google Nexus One and even the iPhone has some serious competition on their hands.
