    OMFG have you guys seen this phone?

    We've been rumoring a WiMAX "HTC Supersonic" for a while now, and Sprint just dropped the hard news: the phone will be dubbed the HTC EVO 4G, will be released this Summer and it's easily the best specced phone we've ever witnessed. The hardware is of quite obvious HD2 descent, but with Android onboard and some nice aesthetic tweaks, the EVO 4G takes on a life of its own. The handset is centered around a 480 x 800 4.3-inch TFT LCD, with a Snapdragon QSD8650 1GHz processor under the hood (the CDMA version of the QSD8250 in the HD2 and Nexus One), and even a helpful 1GB of built-in memory and 512MB of RAM -- hello app storage! Even the battery is bigger than the HD2, and the camera is an 8 megapixel monstrosity with flash, that's capable of 720p video, and is augmented by a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for good measure. The phone features HDMI out (though you'll need an adapter for turning it into a TV-familiar HDMI plug), 802.11b/g WiFi, and an 8GB microSD card. There's that still-rare Android 2.1 underneath an updated version of HTC's Sense UI. But... despite all these wild features, what actually sets the EVO 4G apart is the fact that it's Sprint's first 4G phone. The handset runs a combo of EV-DO Rev. A and WiMAX, with calls still being made over CDMA and the EV-DO / WiMAX options for data. Interestingly, it sounds like concurrent data and voice use might be possible for the first time on CDMA carrier in this way (killing AT&T's well-advertised differentiator), though Sprint says that's still in the testing phase.

    forgive me if this hasnt been answered, but doesnt this work in WiMaxx? (by clearwire) wixmaxx isnt everywhere, so what happens when u travel outside of wimax? it roams back to regular 3G cdmda?

    It depends on price of phone/service cost.

    yeah it looks like there will be an added cost to that 4g access so I'll go ahead and wait and see on this. The phone looks really nice but it would look a lot nicer with WebOS on it.

    No physical keyboard = no go for me. Though the specs are pretty, the specs don't help me if I can't use the damn thing. ha

    Are you seriously going to ditch your Palm phone because it doesn't have 4G when the state you live in doesn't even have one single city with coverage yet.

    Go to Sprint-Welcome and put in your address and then select 4G under data.

    This phone is a beast. I'm leaning towards getting one in June. But i love webos
    so i'll be waiting and hoping palm comes out with some new hardware similar to this on sprint.
    Otherwise hello evo 4g.

    I'm ditching it cuz the EVO runs butter smooth has a huge touchscreen, HDMI out 1ghz processor, bigger battery, slimmer body, and kickstand.

    It's thinner than a droid, about the same thickness as an iPhone and just a tad big bigger. I love my Pre as much as the next guy, but unlike the next guy I don't have some blind loyalty to Palm. At the time the Pre was the best smartphone I can get on Sprint, now it's not.
