HTC-EVO-GB-700

Sprint’s first WiMax/4G phone is official, and it’s everything your dream smartphone could be. The HTC Evo 4G is a combination of HTC’s Touch HD2 hardware, and a bit of Sense UI Android goodness of the HTC Legend, pushing 720p HDMI output and ultimately becoming the future of portable multimedia entertainment.

The Evo will be exclusive to Sprint, with blazing fast downloads over their 4G network, it will also work on their existing 3G network, but 4G is really where its at (10 times faster than 3G). Running Android 2.1, with a beautiful 4.3-inch TFT LCD screen at 480×800 resolution, we would expect this powerful machine to support DiVX, but no official word on that just yet.

It looks like AT&T is expanding their lineup again. Already with the prized and coveted iPhone, the new Palm phones from earlier today, and joining the family is a new Android phone called the Dell Aero. Looks familiar doesn’t it? That’s because it’s basically the same handset as the Dell Mini 3 that has been on sale in China for a little while now and we suspected back in January headed this way. The critical difference – aside from the clear language alterations – is that the phone is branded as the Dell Aero, and no, you won’t be seeing this on 7-11 shelves.

ipad-blankkey.160

The location of the key is in the middle above the number 6 key, traditionally where F6 would be. Macduke believes Apple may assign a function to the blank key before shipment; he also speculates that the function could be to launch a Mac-like dashboard with plenty of widgets, perhaps a “back to home” type of button?
