A Quick Look at HTC EVO 4G: The First WiMAX Phone in the U.S.


This new product from HTC, the EVO 4G has more internet than any phone in the U.S. at the moment. This phone is like a big black slab that has a 4.3-inch LCD screen and a kickstand on the back so you can prop it up as you watch videos.

The HTC EVO 4G also has a lot of useful software such as a Twitter client, two GPS navigation options, an FM radio, Microsoft Office and PDF readers and more. The applications run swiftly on its 1-GHz processor.

Good Points: It is the first WiMAX phone with an excellent web browser that has some flash. It has two cameras and a Wi-Fi hotspot mode.  You can view the full specifications here.

Points to Improve: According to reveiws I’ve read, the LCD screen is quite reflective which makes it a bit difficult to use outdoors. It is not a great voice phone and the 4G coverage is very limited. All the available internet takes a toll on the HTC EVO 4G battery.

Overall, despite its flaws, the HTC EVO 4G is very impressive.
