And I thought the Evo crowd were a forward-thinking group...bah!

The new Evo should be a wrist mounted device with a tactile holographic display projector. When activated it projects a display just above the palm the wrist unit is attached to with size being adjustable to the users preference. A secondary top mounted projector would take over main screen duties when the lower projects a keyboard in a desktop fashion.

Phone calls are handled by a sub-dermal transducer placed directly behind the ear (this will be performed by a nurse-practitioner at your local Sprint store) that uses a Deep Bluetooth transmitter to communicate with the wrist unit. As an upgrade, you can opt for the full surround transducer and a rumble pack that will be placed at the base of your spine.

The phone specs would be, of course, mind boggling. Start with a 1 tera-hertz 16 core processor, 128gb ram, 100tb storage, 3840x2160P 960hz display capability and the much awaited Android AI operating system!

Power would not be an issue since it will run on an anti-matter reactor (non-user replaceable due to total annihilation issues), or for the eco-friendly a solar panel you can wear on your head and a hand crank generator for night use.

There would be government/military only options such as gps based teleporter, defensive microwave projector, particle beam weaponry and a coffee maker.

Now, since Steve "Whiney Baby" Jobs and Apple have already invented all of this and more I think I will retire and enjoy the rest of my sleep deprived hallucinations...

I never said they haven't done it, just that they aren't much on doing that. The number of times they've had a successor have actually been few and far between.

Give me that stuff in addition to the list you guys have (uh, skip the physical keyboard, thx) and I'll be pretty happy.

Actually, by the time you read this you'll notice that there's a rumor on the web that that describes the EVO 3 or later but they're going to use a different name because EVO 3 4G sounds funny and is confusing. So the EVO 2 is really going to be called the BEVO 4G and the one I'm describing is going to be called the FEVO 4G - we'll have to see what the C and D revisions will bring, but I hear the D version will be totally retro.

Oh - the lithium air batteries are coming, so you can forget being underpowered.

PS - Here's the link to the rumor site - FEVO 4G Coming Soon!

Well there might not be a phone called the Evo2 next year, but it's a safe bet that HTC will release a successor to the Evo next year.

One would hope. While all of us could eligible by mid 2011, I personally wouldn't really see a reason to upgrade unless there's some drastic upgrades to the Evo. A phone built like this would make me upgrade:

Dual Core 1.5 ghz Snapdragon processor
2 GB RAM
32 GB Solid State Hard Drive (Max 64 GB w/ Micro SD)
12 Mega-pixel Camera (w/ dual LED flash) capable of shooting 1080p video
3 microphones (Droid X/iPhone 4 style)
Android 3.0+
Upgraded Sense UI
4.3 display with 326dpi resolution
Dual high fidelity external speakers for multimedia
Kickstand
4000+ mAh battery

Christopher:

A couple of points to make with respect to your wish list.

An SSD of any capacity adds dramatically to the cost and the additional battery draw from the supporting chips makes this unrealistic. Even the smallest SSD d rives on mini PCI-e are way too big for a phone.

I would suggest they change over to the sd xc interface which allows for capacities up to 2TB and throughput in the 300 MB/second range.

Assuming no breakthroughs in battery technology are in the pipeline, the battery would need to be about 2-3x the size of the current battery.

I wonder if they could learn some techniques from apple ... If you've seen the tear downs the interior of the iphone is largely taken up by battery.

Smaller phone and non-replaceable (without great hassle) battery.

Let's be careful what we wish for.

You totally missed the pico projector.

And as 1080p is merely about 2 MP, tell me again why you want a 12 MP camera?

Where's the lens spec? How about a Proxar, or a Zeiss or a Schneider?

And where's the full adjustment, with gamma on that SAMOLED?

And what's with the solid aluminum body? Don't we want to overthrow Apple and get the liquid metal that's coming (that they snarfed up in a slick acquistion)?

The dual batteries with hot swap? The externally available SD card?

And - and this is important - EVO 2? The EVO 2 4G?

Dont have a need for it but why not.

I like to cut and crop my pics. The more pixels the less pixelated they get.

Where's the lens spec? How about a Proxar, or a Zeiss or a Schneider?

How about a DSLR quality lens with interchangable lens, so I can pop on a telephoto lens with some nice filters. JK

Externally removable SD card


Hell yeah!

12 MP = bigger print capability. 2 MP only gives a 4x6 print, 12 gets 16x24.

Zeiss, Nikkor or Leica Vari-Lux would be my choices. Of course, my previous design would have holographic imaging.

Again, tactile holographic projection. Barring that, we need SHD!

Liquid Metal? Hmmmm...

Dual batteries and external SD are a must.

Evo 2 4G.

On edit: OK Early, how did this show up before your post when it was a response to it?!?!?!

ZOMGZ!!1! PONIES!1!!

You've just cracked the case.

We do not want built-in cameras at all.

What we really want is a standardized plug to the motherboard.

You snap on your sensor/lens assembly of choice.

The phone comes with the same stuff we have now, as a snap on - and comes with a socket cover, so for those cases where so desired, you don't even need a lens to scratch on the back, you pop off the cheapie and put the cover on.

When you need to seriously shoot, you pop on the high fidelity sensor complete with a Nikon or Canon or other popular mount and then fit whatever lens you want.

Naturally, the pro sensor body also has an articulation for a tripod mount.

Thanks, ARR22 - I just knew there was something missing from the BEVO Z5G lineup and now we know.

Mark my words - one day, a cell WILL be made with exactly this sort of camera arrangement.

Apple snapped it up?!?! It must not have been too profitable of an idea. If it lived up to the claims I would have imagined a much larger company grabbing it.

As somebody already said, I'm hoping for the most powerful hardware available at the time of release and a SAMOLED screen.

To be honest, though, I don't care what the phone is called. I just want to get Sprint's next "super smartphone" around June next year. It's the curse of nerds... always have to have the latest and greatest, right?

Yeah...it's probably not even possible, but one can dream.

I love everything about this phone except for battery life. I'm constantly on the hunt for a new power source.

There will not be a Evo PRO that would be kinda pointless since they released the Epic, an Evo 2 however is a possibility.

My hope is for an ALL white version.

Course I'm really just asking if we think there will actually be an EVO 2 at all.
I have a phone with the power button located on the side. It is NOT good. It gets in the way so many times. I am always accidentally hitting it.

I think I see what u saying: a longer battery? That way extended batteries wont have to add much more thickness.

I see it with the Droid 2800 mAh and the Eris, Inc 3500 mAh. The Eris, Inc battery is thinner cuz its longer.

Reality is a collective hunch.

And we want lithium-air batteries at a bare minimum.

Imagine a self-powering cell phone that never needs to be charged because it converts sound waves produced by the user into the energy it needs to keep running. It’s not as fa-fetched as it may seem thanks to the recent work of Tahir Cagin, a professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University.

WOW! That's incredible!

Now the only issue is the feasibility of having the other person's voice power your phone... not really possible since the phone must power its own speaker to emit the other person's voice, then it would have to capture its own soundwaves in order to power itself to produce more soundwaves

The reason I bring that up, it because after I wrote my idea, I wondered what would happen if you had a very talkative girlfriend on the other line? The occasional passive "uh huh" or "that's great" would hardly be enough to power the continued use IMO. Not to be sexist or anything but everyone would need a secondary power source for when they get calls from 'that' girl.

Edit: Another thought, maybe that's not such a bad idea... if the person on the other end kills your phone, then maybe it was time for the conversation to end anyway...

I've got friends and family like that - I get worn out.

I wouldn't mind a feature that converts voice to text for selected parts of a call - we could shunt the incoming never-ending stream of audio into the power circuit and then just read.

I could call my Chatty Cathies from the airport when I couldn't find an outlet!

Default what's next for EVO?

Does anyone know if there is an EVO 2 coming? I hope i didn't miss a post about this already, I tried a search on this but nothing showed up. I am just curious, i LOVE my EVO, switched from nextel to the EVO and do not regret it. Just curious what's next.

Thanks.

By the time a phone is released to the public, it's replacement is already in development.

They may not call it the EVO...but the next one is surely in development already.

Perhaps, they will release a sliding keyboard model...then later, another one without keyboard to match the EVO.

If I could get an EVO with a slide out keyboard that feels as solid as the Motorola DROID's keyboard, that would be tempting. I handled the Samsung Epic, and was not impressed with the sloppy springy keyboard. I really like the way the Motorola DROID keyboard slides out.

Agree!
I love my Epic and my Evo.
I use my Epic as my personal device though.
Imagine an unibody and much sleeker Evo with a Z hinge. That would be nice wouldn't it? Take the same front facing camera as the Epic since it's better. Give it a faster processor. Be nice if it was dual or Tegra 2.
Whatever the successor is to the Evo for Sprint, I hope it is better in every way. Not just internals but overall design.
I also hope by then we can have a look at gingerbread

My wife has an Epic. Compared to my old Palm Pre, the keyboard is sloppy. Big, but sloppy. I can shake her phone and feel the keyboard spring.

I am not sure you are interpreting "sloppy" correctly when I use it.

The keyboards do snap into position nicely, but they are spring loaded...so a partial push in either direction without going all the way will cause the keyboard to spring back to the original position.

So if the keyboard is closed, and you want to open it...you can push it half an inch or so without the spring catching...and if you stop pushing, it springs back to closed.

You have to push past a threshold for the keyboard to snap all the way open (or closed). That's what I don't like.

Try opening an original Motorola DROID keyboard, and you'll see a world of difference. It takes more force to start the movement, and there are no springs involved. If you stop opening the keyboard after half an inch, it stays in that position. If you go an inch, it stays there. There are no springs involved like with the Epic.

In short, I agree with this. The droid sliding mechanism, being that it uses ball bearings in an aluminium track in favor of springs on a hinge, is superior to any other phone that ive seen or tried. If you like your phone flipping open randomly through the day, because you might just have a text message to respond to anyways, then a spring loaded slider is right for you.

I, however, disliked that on my Moment and the Epics I've tried. Its loose, sloppy, and it wiggles if you push on the screen. The droid is much more solid, because the slider can keep itself shut under normal use.

I don't see a touchscreen phone like the EVO would suddenly get a keyboard.

Not going to happen.

Despite some qc issues early on in production, and with a number of evo's I think its a well executed phone.

Throw in an amoled screen, a faster CPU, better battery life, and more memory and I think it'll be a winner. Physical keyboards are old news. Swipe on-screen keyboards, like swype and ultra, really make you forget and loathe any kind of actual "typing".... LOL.

Was hoping this thread was more about what will make us excited about our EVO again. This may be more of an Android question than an EVO question. For me I would like to see....

1. Netflix (supposedly they are working on it)
2. Some other EASY to use low cost movie solution. (HELLO HULU!)
3. A solution to make it a GREAT (not just mildly acceptable) alternative to IPOD users. (Hoping Google creates a music store and makes an app that can play unproected (no DRM) music.

If either one of these things happen it will put a bullet or two MORE into the Apple market share.

On the hardware side there will be changes and things will get better for everyone regardless of platform. However, this battle will be decided by Apps.

That doesn't make it sloppy smh lol...
Just means you need to open it yourself and not expect a simple tud to open it for you. That's a personal opinion and what you expect it to do.
That doesn't make it sloppy in whatever way you mean it. Maybe to your personal liking but in general it can be the best made or the worst made. I'm sorry you feel that way, but it's just right for me and I look for quality in everything. So sloppy is the wrong word.
Also when a person has to push it up completely themslevs is actually better. One reason why is because overtime if the keyboard was to open the way you wanted it to just with a little push, then the pop would be a ware and tare in the long run. That's strain on the device. Any and everything get's old do to ware and tare. So having to push it up yourself reduces the stress from the pop.
Another awesome design is the G2, but I'm sure you may have already read and seen that some G2's are having the screen hang and slide if you hold it upside down. Not saying this is the reason but you see how fast and hard that screen pops when you push it? Looks awesome right? But imagine that in the long run? Could be the reason why some of these phones are already doing that or just a simple flaw in the design.
I'm just saying though. I think you should choose another word other then sloppy, cause sloppy is not a pretty word at all. It simply just doesn't aprove of your liking. I can tell that by reading what you say. Your saying what you wish or want it to do rather then having a reason that is a actual issue to how it may function.
From a opinion point I hear you but I don't agree because for me it's awesome.

So, I've read this whole thread and the thought crossed my mind... you've got all this great hardware lined up but where's the kickback for the ladies?


If it could have some spring loaded anti-rust coated aluminum arms for dishes (think Inspector Gadget) - I'd be in without a doubt! I even believe some of you guys would go for that.

to everyone hoping for Super AMOLED, it won't happen. Samsung is gonna take that tech with them to the grave.

however, HTC is currently designing technology similar to SAMOLED. just thought i'd throw that out there

rumors are it'll be featured on the HTC Sabor, which is coming to Sprint Q1 2011
