The popularity of this amazing phone has reached it's limit. It has been 5 days since the pre-sale started and Best Buy/Best Buy Mobile already have a hard time to keep up with the pre-orders. Unbelievable! But what can you say. This phone has been a hit since it was announced.
Sprint has comes up with the latest update on EVO 4G, although there is no Froyo yet. And while the original update didn't brick everyone's phone, Sprint thought it would be a good idea to pull the original, and then release this one instead. With it, the main key point is faster WiFi.
With fixes to wifi and battery life, things were looking good for the EVO 4G. But then it started bricking phones across the country, besides the original issues from the rooted device, customers with the phone have flooded tip lines with problems. One problem is the software is attempting to install itself twice, so basically install over itself.
Even if there had been some obvious kind of way of knowing that the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment on the Sprint Network wouldn't be getting Android 2.2, we can finally say that it's been confirmed. By Sprint, thanks to Twitter.
It has been confirmed by Spring that an update for the HTC EVO 4G is currently being worked on. The update will for the WiMAX-capable smartphone will receive the Android 2.2 Froyo, heard in rumours earlier this week. This update will give the EVO flash support on its browser, Bluetooth voice dialing, an improvement on Exchange ActiveSync support, similar to other devices with Android 2.2.
The newer EVO's have recently just come out and there is a huge difference in the colors of the LCD screens. The newer model has a washed out look to it and the older has better contract, the colors are richer. If you look close to it you can see a row of dead pixels that can look like hair from a little further back.
News on a software update for the EVO 4G can't be completley confirmed, but BGR has received news that Sprint is preparing for a maintenance update. The update is supposedly coming up on the 28th of June, three things are to be targeted in the update. The first update will be an improvement on the wi-fi, the EVO 4G is known for it's poor wi-fi reception.
That’s right folks, the EVO can now take advantage of wireless N technologies. Thanks to the great development community the EVO now has this great new feature. Recently, there have been a few complaints that the EVO had problems keeping a strong Wi-Fi connection, hopefully this addition will sure that problem up a bit.
If you're a fan of the EVO 4G by HTC, but you thought that black color was just too run-of-the-mill, then you can count yourself today justified for your lack of a purchase. Today, thanks to an anonymous tipster sending an image into Engadget, we can see that HTC did in fact make a white version (there had been grumblings, but no confirmations). But, there's a catch -- there always is, right?
