    HTC EVO 4G Debuting on Sprint’s WiMAX Network in Summer

    The HTC EVO 4G is the flagship of all flagship phones for Sprint….I’d contend the most revolutionary and feature-rich handset in the history of both companies. For many reasons, the HTC EVO 4G will not only changes the function and feature set of phones as we know it, but HTC has also incorporated outputs on the device that come very close to an all-in-one miniPC, which can fit snug in our shirt pockets. It will definitely revolutionize the handset market, and other manufacturers are racing to compete.
