The competition is heating up. An unnamed Best Buy source, revealed that HTC EVO 4G will sell for $200 with a contract, while Sprint and HTC are gearing up their media blast for HTC EVO 4G, their next Android super smartphone.
The HTC EVO 4G smartphone is expected to have data speeds 10x faster than 3G, Android 2.1 with HTC Sense, a large 4.3 inch screen with lots of video appeal including Flash support. It has been called breath-taking.
The price of $200 puts it smack up against the next iPhone, well-reviewed HTC Droid Incredible, BlackBerry Bold 9650 (BlackBerryTour2), and new Windows Phone kinds of KIN we mapped out in our spring release calendar.
The HTC EVO 4G will be demoed at an event in New York on May 12, making a release probably soon after. Because it is associated with a movie, we suspect that the video capabilities of the HTC EVO 4G will be a key selling point. Latest rumors suggest a June 13 launch date.
Some bloggers are saying the HTC EVO 4G is an iPhone killer and that they will leave AT&T for Sprint and HTC EVO 4G.
The HTC EVO 4G is about the same size as the always selling out HTC HD2 from T-Mobile.
Reviewsrefer to the large 4.3 inch AMOLED touchscreen (larger than the iPhone) showing video as absolutely gorgeous. The camera takes great photos. The HTC Sense UI is user-friendly and combines contacts. The onscreen keyboard with Swype is spacious and easy to use. Browsing is delightful with pinch to zoom. The processor is super fast making the HTC HD2 thebest smartphone T-Mobile has to offer.
