Sprint EVO 4G won’t do simultaneous voice-data

Besides this being on Sprint, this single factor just ruled this phone out for me. I’m sure there are a few (a lot) of you that don’t really care about this. Looks like 4G will do nothing to change the fact that CDMA phones can’t do voice and data at the same time. I for one need my phone to have this ability. I use them both simultaneously almost every day. And this isn’t just some random rumor it has been confirmed by HTC themselves.

RAmos Launches HD Video Recording-capable PMP

Not much is known about this PMP, it's rumored to be running some variation of Android but there is no solid evidence of that as of yet. It is a great looking piece of hardware and if Android is indeed the chosen OS, this will be a welcome addition to the Android family. It has 720p and 1080p video playback, a 7-inch (800 x ×480) display screen and an HDMI out. There is also support for many different types of media such as, RMVB, AVI, WMV, VOB, FLV, and MPG for starters.
