During the CTIA Wireless conference today, Sprint unveiled it’s very first 4G handset called the HTC EVO 4G. It features Sprint’s WiMAX for 4G data speeds and runs on the Android 2.1 operating system. The device was previously rumored to be called the “HTC Supersonic” but has undergone a name change. HTC makes a large number of smartphones on the market, but this is the first one with WiMAX built in. The EVO 4G sports a 4.3-inch touchscreen, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, two cameras (front and back), GPS Navigation, Compass, microSD slot, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and a kickstand case design for media viewing.Inflatable Bungee Run

They also included the ability to use the device as a Wi-Fi hotspot. This means those fast WiMAX speeds can be shared with up to eight Wi-Fi devices at a time. An excellent feature for anyone who doesn’t want to carry around a USB modem for their notebook. The phone can also use EV-DO if you don’t get WiMAX service in your area. The rear camera is 8 megapixels, includes a flash, and can capture 720p video. HDMI output is available using an adapter, allowing you watch 720p pictures and video on a high definition television. HTC has really packed in the features with this phone. No word on the price yet, but it will be available exclusively on Sprint sometime this summer.
