First up, the new method to root the EVO 4G. We all know that the device, the first 4G phone from Sprint, was actually rooted before it officially launched, but since an Over the Air (OTA) update for the handset that root method was dissolved. But we know the developers out there are still hard at work -- and now they've got a whole new way to go about things.
The leaks of the Droid X just keep on surfacing. This time around it takes out time from its busy day to hang out with the iPhone, EVO and its little brother, the Droid Eris. I guess we’re at the point now where we are going to see a few leaks a day featuring the Droid X and I’m ok with that (to a certain point).
Sprint has released a statement today in regards to the sales figures of the EVO. Apparently they made a mistake when they said the EVO has sold twice as many as the Pre and Instinct combined on their release day. What they meant to say was the EVO sales was “in line” with sales of the aforementioned handsets.
Not too long ago we found out Qik would be charging for “premium features”. This was an additional fee of $4.99 a month. Couple this fee with the 4G and hotspot fee and the EVO was becoming quite an expensive device to own. The good thing is this fee wasn’t mandatory, it just unlocked access to those unnamed premium features.
Here’s a rumor that we haven’t heard in awhile. The first time we heard of this device it was supposedly headed to Sprint to join the EVO as another Android based 4G phone. The latest rumors have this pegged to land on Verizon’s network.
It’s about time Sprint placed this beauty on television. The first EVO 4G commercial has just leaked and its pretty good. The theme of this ad is “first”, as we all know, the EVO is the first 4G Android device to hit the US and the first 4G phone period to be offered.
Talk about hotly anticipated. Even before the HTC EVO 4G was officially announced, talk of a WiMAX Android smartphone had been driving speed freaks wild with the promise of 4G connectivity and the flexibility of an open-source OS. The handset even managed to oust attention from the Nexus One at Google IO last week, when the search giant handed out hundreds of EVO 4G handsets to attending developers. The promise is straightforward: big screen, big camera and a big pipe; does the EVO 4G live up to its spec sheet?
