Can we please stop calling the Evo 4G the "O.G. Evo" in lieu of the impending release of the Evo 3D?General

    My thought too...why add more work to yourself.

    A phone by any name other name is still a phone! The EVO will forever be the EVO, lol.

    why am i not surprised this thread reached beyond the first page..... Maybe we can call the first page the OG page.

    Example:
    "did you guys forget that on the OG page I posted a pic of Number 5?"

    Pretty sure as the OG poster for the name E3D, I'm responsible to point out that like Evo, I ought to have called it the E3d.

    But that loses that Evo feel.

    I've decided to start calling the 3dEvo, pronounced 3 Devo.

    That should whip this OG nonsense - whip it good.

    Not really an issue.

    OOG Evo = Evo 4G
    OG Evo = Evo 3D

    And if we linearly extrapolate the name, it will be the Evo 2B.

    [sarcasm]First, I don't pay you guys to think. [/sarcasm]

    Second, I walk with a limp like a old school pimp or a real OG

    Side note: I vote we all start putting sarcasm in bb code format so people who lack in sarcasm identification have an easy indicator.

    Never called it O.G. Evo. Too lazy to type periods

    Sent from my OG EVO via my laptop via my desk via my office via my house via my city via my state via my country

    It seems to me that the emerging way to reference the Evo line is by the unique attribute that it possesses.
    Evo Shift = Shifting/slideout keyboard
    Evo 3D = 3D capability
    Evo 4G = .... No longer unique, because both the Shift and 3D have 4G. So then, what DOES make the HTC Evo 4G unique?

    Answer - 4 things
    1) It was the original. However, the point of this thread is to buck the idea of referring to it as the Old Generation or Original Generation. So... no go.

    2) It truly was an Evolution in phone technology. The Shift was just a copy, and the 3D is incremental progress over the original, and not much better than anything else out there. But referencing the Evo as the Evolutionary Evo, or the "Evo Evo" in short... well, there's really nothing I can say about that that you haven't already thought from reading that...:eek:

    3) The Evo was originally called the SuperSonic. We could go back to that, but then it might tend to remove the Evo from its rightful place as the well known evolutionary beast. So "Evo" must stay in the title.

    So I guess what I am getting at is suggestion #4.
    4) The thing that really makes the Evo unique from the 3D and the Shift is... the kickstand (you guessed it right from the start didn't you?).

    So I submit to you that it be referenced as the "Evo Kick"
    It has a Kick stand, it Kicked off the Evo line, and it still Kicks Ass.

    I like the sound of the Evo Kick! lol But if people don't know what you're talking about, they'll be really confused.

    Thanks! And Agreed. But I don't think they would be any more confused than if they heard "OG Evo" and didn't know what it was.
    :p

    All of this OG bullshit is a result of geek culture making a dent in pop culture.

    Geek culture? Last time I checked, I most certainly am not a geek. I'm just a hood rat playa
