EVO 4G update back with a vengeance

Great Scott! After all the recent EVO 4G update drama, it’s good to see it back again. Only this time, there appears to be 100% less brick. Just in case you aren’t in the know, that’s exactly what the last EVO update was doing to get the thing recalled. The two main points of this update are pretty straight forward: WiFi and battery fixes. Simple… Read more

EVO takes a turn in the update round robin

Alright. I’m officially changing the theme of summer 2010 from “Changing everything, all over again” (or whatever that was supposed to be), to “An update for every phone… OK, well… almost every phone.” According to BGR, the next phone to get an update during this AUFEPOWAEP (see what I did there?) summer is the HTC EVO. Slated for June 28th, the update… Read more

EVO’s frame rate woes remedied

Does anyone here remember reading about that nasty nasty 30fps cap on the EVO 4G? I know EVO owners haven’t. Well guess who has your back on taking care of that? Nope, not HTC. Of course, it was the guys and gals over at XDA Developers. With the help of a little kernel magic, there is video proof that the EVO is running at 54fps. I should say, it’s not… Read more

N is for awesome; Mod unlocks Wireless-N for EVO

n

We’ve known, for some time, that the EVO was packing a Wireless-N radio.  What was unknown was whether or not it would ever be enabled via an update.  Well, the wait is over….sort of.  While Google, Sprint and HTC were resting on their bums, the fine folks over at XDA Developers were cooking up an update to enable Wireless-N on the HTC EVO 4G. … Read more

Reserve the white EVO you always wanted

Let me just say this… the EVO 4G is one good looking phone. In person, it’s so much sexier than a picture could ever lead you to believe. There is not a single thing I could think to change on the device physically. Well… I guess there might be on thing. If the phone came in white, it would look so stylishly futuristic, my head would explode. Good thing… Read more

World-wide screen shortage affecting stock levels

Visiting Verizon’s Incredible product page only leads to minor depression, as the “in-stock” date continues to evade summer.  First it was the beginning of June, then the middle of June.  At the time of writing this the magical in-stock date is July 13th. Verizon isn’t the only carrier that can’t keep a phone in stock.  Sprint is also struggling… Read more

Sprint corrects EVO sales claim

Sprint-HTC-EVO-4G-1

Woops. Remember when we reported on Sprint’s claim that EVO’s day one sales destroyed the combined sales records of the two previous record holders’ first three days…three-fold? From Sprint: “The total number of HTC EVO 4G devices sold on launch day was three times the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three… Read more

EVO breaks Sprint sales records

Sprint-HTC-EVO-4G-1

June 4th was a huge day for Sprint. Not only did they launch the nation’s first 4G phone and the world’s hottest Android, the EVO sold more on launch day than the Palm Pre and Samsung Instinct – two previous sales record holders for Sprint – did in their first three days of availability… combined. Wow. It looks like America is stoked for 4G, and hot to… Read more

HTC SuperSonic / EVO 4G

When the HTC EVO 4G released in summer of 2010, it was the biggest baddest Android around. The EVO was met with INCREDIBLE popularity that no other Android (except maybe the Moto DROID) has ever seen before. The EVO was the first device ever launched with 4G. The EVO 4G was given out to attendees of Google’s developer conference, Google I/O…. Read more

Sprint HTC EVO 4G get its “First” commercial

Are you anxiously awaiting for the launch of the EVO 4g?  I am.  While I haven’t seen it on TV, Sprint has uploaded the first EVO commercial to their YouTube account.  The “Rube Goldberg-esque” video shows “firsts” in technology.  The phone is visible in the end, but only for a short… Read more
