HTC EVO 4G LTE Finally Reaching Customers, Supports Simultaneous Voice & Data

After a brief hold-up in US Customs, the HTC EVO 4G LTE has finally started shipping out to customers, and some are already reporting their new smartphones arriving. As they start to put these handsets through their paces, it’s become clear that even without LTE service up-and-running, the EVO 4G LTE is support simultaneous connections to Sprint’s CDMA voice and EV-DO data services.

Simultaneous voice and data on CDMA networks has been talked about for years, but it’s been slow to see implementation. That’s not helped any by the very low-key way that Sprint’s apparently been deploying new phones that support the feature, as news of its inclusion on the EVO 4G LTE has started a search to find other models that support it, and it turns out this handset is by no means alone.

In addition to the EVO 4G LTE, simultaneous voice and data is reportedly working on the low-end LG Optimus Elite, which just came to retail stores last week, as well as another of the carrier’s LTE options, the LG Viper 4G LTE.

This will likely be a moot point soon with Sprint’s continued deployment of LTE, but it’s nevertheless a nice treat that’s been a long time coming.
