    anybody see it? I was at my inlaws and saw her using an HTC phone, but couldn't tell which one it was (only saw the top). but then i heard her say something about Sprint 4G.

    somebody fill in the blanks.

    Oh gawd! Next thing you know dozens of middle-aged women will be running around planning their next get together over the Evo's front facing video camera.

    Did she actually TALK about the phone? Or was she just "doing something on a phone" which happened to be an Evo?

    As if I didn't already dislike Oprah enough, now she gets her hands on the EVO before the rest of us!

    BULLPUCKY!!!



    Edit: That being said, I hope she mentioned it by name and continues to promote it if this is true. That'd be GREAT for HTC's battle against the new iPhone sales!

    +1, any good press is good for HTC and Android even if it is Oprah

    getting on oprah is huge, she has a massive, dedicated fanbase. Tens of thousands of women will go out and buy something if Oprah tells them to. We need to get Joel Osteen an EVO.... someone post the clip when available!

    Can someone post a clip if/when it goes online please?

    Oprah just needs to make an "Oprah's Book Club" deal except with phones.

    I can imagine thousands of housewives buying the EVO just cause it may have an "Official Oprah's Phone Club" sticker in the front of the box, lol.

    I really hope thats not part of her "no phone zone" protest, it could backfire in a bad way.

    Lol, wut?

    Nevermind, I really don't want to see Oprah with an EVO now!

    She would probably say it kills people and breeds internet pedophiles. I can see it now.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Oprah speaking to a supposed "expert": So tell us more about this front-facing cam, how does it work?

    "Expert": Yes, well, it's a 1.3 megapixel camera, capable of streaming live footage to other peop-

    Oprah: Let me stop right there, you said this phone streams live video over the internet?

    Expert: Well, yes, it's an exciti-

    Oprah: OMGZ does this mean we could see a new breed of pedophiles from this phone? Do we have to worry about our children being exposed to this?

    Expert: Well, I hardly think this is an iss-

    Oprah: Let me stop you right there, we have to take a commercial break, but when we come back: "How Sprint's new phone, the HTC EVO is bringing pedophiles ever closer to our children!" Stay tuned.

    /commercial break.

    I think they're just sponsoring the "no phone zone" thing. She's not bashing the EVO she's bashing the people that use their phones while driving.

    Inside your monitor.
    I bet it is just a pre-production device. I doubt it is a final version.
