HTC EVO V 4G gets hand-me-down 4G on Virgin Mobile

The great WiMAX hope for The Now Network has faded, and they're now investing in a true LTE network slated for some time later this year. But that doesn't mean that they're going to let all those "4G" WiMAX towers go to waste - they'll just open them up for users of their low-cost subsidiaries, like Virgin Mobile's US arm. Their first "4G" phone will be the HTC EVO V 4G, announced today at CTIA in New Orleans.

LG Viper 4G LTE Review

The brand new 4G powered LG Viper 4G LTE will be available in a few short days. Starting April 22nd for the Now Network. Being the first LTE device not on Verizon or AT&T we wanted to give it a quick look. LTE still isn't quite available from the Now Network, as it replaces their WiMAX, but we've tossed the phone through the ringer anyways so read on below for our full thoughts and plenty of pictures.

HTC EVO Design 4G Review

The popular and iconic EVO brand has just added another member to the family this month and that is the new HTC EVO Design 4G. Being the second smallest to carry the title while staying right in the middle with its specifications it should make most users plenty happy. It may not be as large as the big guns like the original EVO but it sure handles its own quite well, not to mention it should only run you a crispy $100 dollar bill. Below we'll show you a few pictures and our hands-on video and let you decide for yourself if this is the next phone for you.

HTC EVO Design 4G hands-on [Video]

If you've been waiting for another awesome HTC smartphone rocking 4G WiMAX and didn't fancy the EVO 3D or its dual cameras then we may have the perfect phone for you -- the HTC EVO Design 4G. Leaked more than a few times, including press images, HTC officially announced the new EVO Design 4G just last week. Today we have the phone in all its glory to show our readers and let you decide if its worthy of the EVO title, so check out our pictures and hands-on video after the break.

HTC officially unveils EVO Design 4G with WiMAX

Not content to let Samsung and Motorola hog the limelight for long, HTC has revealed its latest entry in the EVO line. The HTC EVO Design 4G is a 4-inch Gingerbread phone packing WiMAX and world phone capabilities. The phone runs on a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, which combined with 768MB of RAM should be able to handle the 960 x 540 qHD screen nicely. The EVO Design 4G earns its name from its unibody aluminum construction, a trait it shares with some of HTC's slickest handsets like the Sensation. The press release mentions .47 inch (11.9mm) depth, about on par with other 4-inch smartphones, and considerably thinner than most WiMAX handsets. Some sacrifices had to be made - the 5 megapixel rear camera is midrange, and the 1520 mAh battery will likely take a beating when using the faster connection standard. HTC Sense 3.5, Watch DLNA certification and a 3G/4G mobile hotspot are included. Other features include the basic WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS combination, and the phone includes an 8GB MicroSD card, though internal storage is currently a mystery. The phone will go on sale this Sunday, October 23rd for $99 on a two-year contract, less $50 for the mail-in rebate. The pricing and size makes the HTC EVO Design 4G a suitable replacement for the EVO Shift 4G, so expect that phone to be discounted soon enough. [via SlashGear]

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Review

Welcome to the United States, Galaxy S II, I see you've got the longest name in the history of smartphones here in your initial iteration! Don't worry, though, it's nothing to be afraid of - you're still the thinnest 4G device on any and every carrier you'll be on here in the states, and with this first launch on the WiMAX carrying carrier, you're round and lovely as well. The Epic 4G Touch has what many might call the most unique look to it of all the Galaxy S II devices out thus far, having a 4.5-inch display, the roundest edges in a Galaxy S II thus far, and almost spherical back corners with a textured battery cover. Four buttons at the bottom and it's lost its international single-center-button charm, will it add up to the legends we've heard of this device as it's been out for the past few months in Europe in Asia?

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Benchmarks vs GSII Original vs SGSIIE4GT NYC

If there's one thing a software developer, a processor manufacturer, and/or a smartphone designer loves (or hates violently) it's a good benchmark. What we've got below is a set of benchmarks run on the brand new Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch right out of the box. These benchmark scores are compared then in brief to both the original Galaxy S II as reviewed by Chris Davies as well as the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch that we saw on the presentation block in NYC not two weeks ago! It's time for some bonus nitpicking to a degree that only your barber would be able to tell!
