4G HTC EVO Arrives on Sprint

Techstination feature for Friday, June 4, 2010

The HTC Evo arrives. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It has a big, beautiful screen, a powerful processor and the latest version of Google's Android operating system. There's a lot to love about the HTC Evo, the first mobile phone that can take advantage of the 4G network being built by Sprint. Even if you aren't in one of the 32 cities where Sprint 4G service is available so far, the EVO is the best handset you'll find from the carrier. And if you don't mind the added size of the more than four inch screen, it may be the best available from any carrier. The price, with a contract and rebate, is 199 dollars. Sprint VP Fared Adib...

"I think that was the most important thing for us. We didn't want to make this a product for a select few people. We wanted to make it available for the masses."

Keep in mind that using the phone in the 4G mode takes a big hit on battery life. You have the option of turning that on or off. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
