The HTC EVO 4G is Sprint's first phone to use their WiMAX 4G network. The advantages of 4G are numerous, but the most noticeable is speed, as it is up to 10 times faster than 3G and will rival DSL or Cable speeds found on desktop computers.
The phone boasts a 4.3" capacitive touchscreen with WVGA 800 x 480 resolution, HDMI output, 8MP camera with dual flash, a 1.3MP font facing camera for video conferencing, high definition 720p video recording and a speedy 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Sprint has said that you'll be able to attach up to 8 WiFi devices to the EVO 4G, including other WiFi enabled phones, laptops, printers and cameras.
When the EVO 4G is released this summer, it should be a highly sought after device, but will it be able to take the top spot as the best selling smartphone of the market?
