Sprint just unveiled the HTC EVO Design 4G, which will be available Oct. 23 for only $100. The Now Network has really been hard at work as of late, with its new commitment of switching to 4G LTE beginning in 2012. The EVO Design 4G has a standout feature of dual CDMA/GSM capabilities, other than that, the rest of the phone packs some pretty impressive things as well.
Some other noteworthy features include:
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- HTC Sense – Award-winning user experience taking social networking, navigation and customization to new levels
- Aluminum unibody design gives the HTC EVO Design 4G a slim, streamlined profile –guaranteed to get attention and nicely compact in your hand, pocket or bag
- 1.2GHz processor
- 4-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen display
- Dual cameras: 5MP rear-facing camera/camcorder with flash and HD video recording and 1.3MP front-facing camera for video chat
- World Phone capabilities to make and receive calls and texts, and to access email and news from locations around the globe
- 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, supporting up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices
- Wifi 802.11 b/g/n
Hey, for $100 you can’t complain. The EVO Design 4G is better looking than its predecessor of last year. Chiming in on the new design and affordable price of this latest addition to the EVO family, Fared Adib, Sprint vice president-Product Development said:
“Priced at under $100, HTC EVO Design 4G is the perfect device for consumers looking for both the benefits of 4G and the latest in device style.”
This is an interesting buy for those looking for a power phone on the cheap. Besides, it makes me wonder why Sprint and HTC didn’t come out with this version before the EVO 3D? If you’re interested in snatching one of these up, make sure you look for this device to show up online and in stores on October 23rd.
