Sprint EVO 4G: Bloody Awesome!
By: Prashanth Shantharam  |  25, March 2010

evo1Sprint may finally get its ‘STAR’ device with the launch of the EVO 4G at the CTIA yesterday. This first 4G phone from the company looks spectacular. Powered on Sprint’s Wimax Network this device would cost you either $200 (on a 2 year contract) or $650 for the unlocked handset.

Rating: ★★★★

Take a look at its killa specs

  • EVO runs on Google’s Android 2.1 OS
  • 4.3”, 480 x 800 TFT LCD Screen
  • 8 MP Still and Video Camera with flash
  • 1.3 MP Front Facing Camera (presumably for video chats)
  • EVO’s most interesting feature is that it can proxy as a WiFi hotspot. The device can share its Internet connection with up to 8 users in tandem
  • An awesome video feature is the device’s kickstand. While watching a movie, for example- You don’t need to hold the device constantly – you can rest it on the kickstand on its side.
  • Video recording at 720p is a dream and can easily substitute a camcorder, an HDMI out jack that displays upto 720p – requires an external adaptor though
  • All this is Powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon Processor!

It’s sure hard not to want one, and add to my smartphones basket!!

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
