Packed to the Gills


HTC, not one to be beleaguered by lawsuits from Apple has unveiled the HTC EVO 4G, a handset with no shortage of specs. The Android 2.1 based smartphone features a 480×800 4.3″ TFT LCD display, 1Ghz Snapdraggon processor, 1GB of built-in memory, 512MB of RAM, 1,500 mAh battery, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, digital compass, dual 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and 8 megapixel camera with flash and 720p video capture, Wi-Fi, HDMI connector for video output, and a swappable 8GB microSD card (included).

As you’d expect, the EVO 4G will be, well, 4G/3G capable (WiMAX and EV-DO) in compatible markets giving it not only blistering mobile speed, but also the ability to run apps while on the phone. Another ace up the EVO 4G’s sleeve will be its ability to to run Sprint’s trick hotspot app, which allows it to be used as a mobile hotspot for up to 8 devices. With features like these, the next iPhone has one helluva challenger to face.
