New Kid On The Smartphone Block
In terms of overall size and heft, the Evo 4G is a bit bigger than Apple's iPhone. But unlike the iPhone, the Evo 4G's screen takes up almost all of the front surface area of the device -- there's almost no wasted space.
Powered by Android 2.1 and HTC's Sense UI, the Evo 4G is user friendly right out of the box. The Home, Menu, Back and Search touch-sensitive buttons are tucked neatly below the screen. There's even a front-facing video camera for video conferencing.
In terms of networking, the Evo 4G supports WiMAX and EVDO Rev.A, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and GPS. Sprint's 4G network isn't yet lit up nationwide, so customers will have to temper their enthusiasm for next generation bandwidth, but as a 3G device, the Evo 4G works just fine.
