    Hmm I was skeptical if this was going to be real, but now its getting picked up by other sites too...maybe it's legit? Looked fake at first...

    Well, there are at least 2 separate copies floating around...one I saw has all of the event details blurred out, and one says "New York" on it.

    i just hope its not photoshopped by someone in the facebook evo event group, since that's where the may 12th date started floating around (because of the rescheduled end date for the event).

    It's the final countdown! Haha. It could be fake, but the schedule seems logical.

    At this point, I don't believe it's fake at all. Sprint is going to start their media blitz making a big splash.

    This is when the Facebook group is now ending so they seem to match up.

    I've been browsing through the android apps just to pass the time. Trying to decide which ones I want and looking for the ones I hope will be available soon like:

    netflix
    hulu
    DivX player
    slingbox
    TIVO control

    Edit: sorry I should have put this post in the apps thread.

    That was posted on 4/20 man, their web guy was probably high when he wrote that.

    In all seriousness, I sure hope it happens because if it doesn't happen soon and they wait too long it will only hurt them.

    you know... a 4g phone... in a FUTURE 4g city....a big announcment.... i'd say Hesse is gonna talk a little about new york getting 4g!

    i mean really, how is he supposed to have a party for a 4g phone in a place that doesn't have 4g?????

    that would be like announcing the first cell phone in a place that got no service.... what's the point!??!!

    I also thought it was fake, but now that it's been posted on several websites, it seems to be real.

    I assume it will be a fairly big event, all the specs will be 'officially' announced, possibly upgrade the rom to 8 gig to match the Incredible, which could be one of the surprises Dan Hesse mentioned.

    I imagine this same day or a day or two beforehand, Wimax will go live in NYC and Sprint will talk it up, as well as announce more cities getting Wimax in the near future.

    i still find it suspicious that huge blogs like engadget, gizmodo, techcrunch, and bgr still haven't announced this... but the optimist in me hopes it's true :)
