Sprint Evo 4G Review

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?

HTC Wildfire entry-level Android debuts

HTC have unveiled their latest Android smartphone, the HTC Wildfire, and it's an entry-level model that looks to replace the little-loved HTC Tattoo.  Packing a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, European 3G/UMTS support, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and HTC Sense, the Wildfire looks like a cross between a Desire and a Google Nexus One. As for Sense, that has a couple of new features including displaying a contact's latest Facebook status update along with their photo whenever you call them or they call you.  There's also a new app called Application Sharing, which allows you to quickly let friends know about software you're enjoying on your phone: after picking the title from a list, you can share it via SMS, email, Twitter or whatever other social networking tools you have on your phone. HTC Wildfire hands-on: [vms 8f11f8f69cbb52b1396b] According to HTC's Eric Lin, the Wildfire "makes good on the promise of the Tattoo... [it's] much better executed."  That not only makes for a better phone for the end-user, but one that's cheaper for HTC to produce (meaning a cheaper MRSP) but that uses better quality components.  The Wildfire has the same 528MHz CPU as the HTC Hero, but with HTC having stripped out the 3D animations from Sense it keeps things moving reasonably quickly.  There's also a microSD card slot under the battery cover and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top edge.  The battery is a 1,300mAh pack, though HTC aren't quoting estimated runtimes as yet. The HTC Desire will be available in Q3 2010, in black, white, red and brown; no word on pricing at this stage, though HTC tell us they're aiming for the entry-level "my first smartphone" market.

HTC Triumph Heads to TELUS This Summer

When the HTC Triumph came into our radar the first time, it was because it had appeared in an internal TELUS inventory screen. Well, now it's getting a little bit more interesting, as a tipster has sent Mobile Syrup the first screen shot of the device. And, as some had suggested, the Triumph is indeed a rebranded version of HTC's Desire.

Verizon HTC Droid Incredible Review

With a name like the Droid Incredible by HTC, Verizon aren't exactly pulling any punches when it comes to their latest Android smartphone. Beating the CDMA Google Nexus One to the market, the Droid Incredible packs the current holy trinity of big screen, fast processor and high-resolution camera, together with the UI benefits of HTC Sense. Can it really live up to its boastful name, though?

Twitter Has An Android App In The Works

Since the beginning of Android, Twitter apps have been among the most popular apps available.

Verizon HTC Incredible full specs leak

What specs we've seen of the HTC Incredible so far have pretty much left us convinced that its name is well-deserved, but if we needed any final persuasion then the full leaked spec sheet is easily sufficient.  Acquired by BGR, the Verizon-sourced document - which lists the handset as the HTC Incredible ADR6300 - confirms the 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.7-inch WVGA OLED touchscreen and 8GB of onboard storage. There's also an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus, WiFi b/g/n, 512MB of both ROM and RAM and dualband EVDO Rev.A.  The Incredible runs Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense UI, and measures in at 4.63 x 2.3 x 0.47 inches and weighs 4.59oz. All in all it's working out to be a great device, and we're wondering exactly who'll be plumping for the also-imminent Verizon Nexus One rather than picking up the better-spec'd Incredible.  Last we heard, the HTC Incredible will arrive on Verizon come April 29th.
