Apple this week unveiled the next-generation iPhone: The Apple iPhone 4. The new hardware, which is also the first iPhone to boast iPhone OS 4 software, makes big strides on the previous model: The Apple iPhone 3G S. Apple has knack for giving the people what they want.
But HTC is no slouch either. And the recent release of the HTC EVO 4G -- the first 4G WiMax smartphone -- is looking to steal some of the Apple iPhone 4's thunder. The HTC EVO 4G has already set a first-day sales record for Sprint, selling more for Sprint than any device in its first day on the shelves than any other.
So we're putting the two devices into the thunder dome to see who comes out standing. Will it be the Apple iPhone 4 or the Google Android HTC EVO 4G. We'll pit them head to head in 14 different categories to see who comes out the victor.
We've done this before. In clash of the touch-screen titans round one we stacked the iPhone 3G up against challenges like the T-Mobile G1 and the BlackBerry Storm. Guess what? The iPhone 3G won. With the release of the iPhone 3G S a year later, we brought you clash of the touch-screen titans round two: a cage match between the iPhone 3G S and the Palm Pre. Again, to Apple went the spoils. This time, we'll see if Apple can take round three with the Apple iPhone 4, or if the HTC EVO 4G has the power and might of an early 1990s Iron Mike Tyson and can throw a hefty third-round knockout blow.
Ding! Ding! Let's get it on!
