Sprint Announces HTC Evo 4G

March 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Today Sprint raised the bar by announcing the HTC Evo 4G, aka the “Supersonic”. This thing is quite possibly the most feature packed device I have ever seen or dreamed up! The Evo packs a 4.3 in display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8.0 mega-pixel camera, Wimax, Android 2.1, Sense UI and the ability to turn the phone into a mobile hotspot! Phew! I need a glass of water after saying/typing all of that! No detail on pricing or release date, other than Sprint saying “summer”.

The Boy Genius Report has received word from HTC regarding the very public lawsuit filed by Apple. Here is what HTC had to say or not say about the situation:

Seattle – March 17, 2010 – HTC Corporation today outlined its disagreement with Apple’s legal actions and reiterated its commitment to creating a portfolio of innovative smartphones that gives consumers a variety of choices. Founded in 1997 with a passion for innovation and a vision for how smartphones would change people’s lives, HTC has continually driven this vision by consistently introducing award-winning smartphones with U.S. mobile operators.

“HTC disagrees with Apple’s actions and will fully defend itself. HTC strongly advocates intellectual property protection and will continue to respect other innovators and their technologies as we have always done, but we will continue to embrace competition through our own innovation as a healthy way for consumers to get the best mobile experience possible,” said Peter Chou, chief executive officer, HTC Corporation. “From day one, HTC has focused on creating cutting-edge innovations that deliver unique value for people looking for a smartphone. In 1999 we started designing the XDA

The O2 XDA by HTC was the first 3.5-inch color touch screen smartphone in the world in 2002. and T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition The T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition by HTC was the first 3.5-inch color touch screen smartphone in the United States in 2002., our first touch-screen smartphones, and they both shipped in 2002 with more than 50 additional HTC smartphone models shipping since then.”

The industry has recognized HTC’s contributions through a variety of awards including Fast Company’s 2010 Top 50 Most Innovative Companies and MIT Technology Review’s 2010 50 Most Innovative Companies. The GSMA also recently awarded the HTC Hero as the “Best Phone of 2009.” Some of HTC’s technology firsts include:

  • First Windows PDA (1998)
  • First Windows Phone (June 2002)
  • First 3G CDMA EVDO smartphone (October 2005)
  • First gesture-based smartphone (June 2007)
  • First Google Android smartphone (October 2008)
  • First 4G WIMAX smartphone (November 2008)

In 2009, HTC launched its branded user experience, HTC Sense. HTC Sense is focused on putting people at the center by making phones work in a more simple and natural way. This experience was fundamentally based on listening and observing how people live and communicate.

“HTC has always taken a partnership-oriented, collaborative approach to business. This has led to long-standing strategic partnerships with the top software, Internet and wireless technology companies in the industry as well as the top U.S., European and Asian mobile operators,” said Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC America. “It is through these relationships that we have been able to deliver the world’s most diverse series of smartphones to an even more diverse group of people around the world, recognizing that customers have very different needs.”

AT&T Picking Up HTC Desire, Sprint Getting HTC Legend!!!??

February 23, 2010 2 comments

According to BGR, AT&T will be picking up the HTC Desire and it should be on shelves anywhere from May to June! This is great news for AT&T users wanting a big boy Android device. The Backflip is nice, but it is no HTC Desire. On the other side of the carrier battle, Sprint is said to be picking up the unibody sexiness of the HTC Legend and calling it the Hero 2. We don’t have a time frame for the Legend/Hero 2, so not sure if it will hit in fall like the original HTC Hero, or if it will drop in the summer. Either way this is great news for Android fans on both carriers!
