    A few different places are saying the Droid Incredible DOES have wireless N. And since this phone is coming before the EVO, maybe one of the secrets Dan Hesse was hiding is that the EVO will have an WiFi-N radio as well. I don't see why it wouldn't if they put one in the Incredible.

    I really hope you're right, and crossing every finger I have for it to be. But, it looks like the D Incred is b/g :(

    well, multiple people are saying bestbuy told them the evo can be preordered there 30 days before launch. sprints facebook event is the 12th. at first by looking at the calendar, i got june 6th (may 12 +30 days) but i added wrong. its actually june 4, which, sadly is a friday

    anyone else afraid of finger prints? I hate finger prints and with the screen so large... in the video above when he was using the Evo all I could see are the finger prints :eek:

    hopefully a really good screen protector thing will help a lot..

    Is there even a benefit of wireless N over G on the Evo?

    Well considering if you don't live in a 4G area (or if Sprint charges for 4G [which they better not!]) and you don't want to use, wireless N is faster and has a greater range than G. All routers coming out these days are wireless N, along with most wifi cards.

    Does the Evo NEED it? No, of course not. G is fine. Is N faster? Yes.

    Bill - Never mind. I saw the ad recently again and noticed the guy was holding both a Moment and an Overdrive (one in each hand). :eek:

    Not trying to be rude, but May 12 + 30 days is June 11th, not June 4th, though it is still a Friday.

    Thanks, phatning. I was just thinking today that it's been awhile since we've heard from you.

    Hey Jackson, do you know if the EVO will have a WiFi-N radio? For the most part I'd just use 3G/4G but if I need to download something big, like a movie, I could use my home connection and N router..

    That would be a cool background. I seen someone use that before though. I have so many ideas on what I'm going to use. :cool:

    maybe a little faster and little better range.

    For example my router is G and I get full bars all over our 2 story house. I pay for Uverse 18Mb/s internet and get 17-18Mb/s down. So I have no need to upgrade to a wireless N router really.

    I have a little bit of a concern that i have not heard brought up about the EVO. Currently this phone is able to do 4G/WiMAX however, what happens if sprint decides to use LTE instead since they said that they will do it for the greater good if the market goes in that direction. Will they stop the deployments of 4G in the new areas? Sorry if i sound dumb here but it crossed my mind. Is the radio able to be updated in the EVO to support LTE if this is truly the future? The EVO wont do us any good if they go full LTE and it doesn't support it. :(

    Purposely stayed away or "quiet" so I don't drive myself or my wife insane about EVO 4G, whichever comes first. :p
