    This is the HTC EVO ONE (codename:Jewel) that Sprint will reportedly launch on Wednesday, pictured between the HTC One X for AT&T and the T-Mobile-bound HTC One S. As one of the Now Network's premiere LTE handsets, the EVO ONE promises to usher in a new cellular broadband technology in much the same manner as the HTC EVO 4G heralded the company's ill-fated WiMax rollout. Rumored by Android Central to sport a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm along with a 4.7-inch, 720p display and 16GB of internal memory, the EVO ONE should make a worthy successor the EVO 3D -- which is ...

    We were in New York City this evening to hear about the new HTC EVO 4G LTE. The EVO 4G LTE is very similar to the HTC One X, though it adds HD-voice capability, Sprint LTE, and a slightly redesigned case to provide a kickstand (perhaps in homage to the original HTC EVO 4G). It's also got a beefier battery at 2000mAh, versus 1800mAh on the GSM version, plus a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU instead of the Tegra3 quad-core chip found on the One X. The HD-voice is an interesting addition, as it marks the start of improved voice quality afforded by fourth-generation networks. HD-voice is the kind ...

    We had a few moments to put the recently-announced HTC EVO 4G LTE up against the new Windows Phone-powered Nokia Lumia 900 at the EVO 4G LTE launch event in New York. These phones are very different. The EVO 4G LTE runs with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and utilizes HTC's Sense 4.0 interface, while the Lumia 900 is running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango with a small handful of software additions made by Nokia. The Lumia 900 is certainly heavier than the EVO 4G LTE, despite being less tall and wide. The Lumia 900 also has a less precise screen due to its WVGA resolution, but if you like the deep ...

    We've learned from a reliable source that Virgin Mobile will begin carrying the nearly year-old HTC EVO 3D later this year, offering it up as the HTC EVO V 4G. Tipped to be available in both grey as well as the plum shade once exclusive to Best Buy, the rebranded EVO 3D will join the recently-revealed HTC One V on Virgin, creating quite a compelling portfolio of HTC Android devices on the prepaid carrier. Despite getting somewhat long in the tooth, the EVO 3D still offers a very attractive feature set. Besides being one of only two auto-stereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D handsets available in ...

    Earlier we saw yet another carrier shift from WiMAX for the more popular LTE standard, but just how wide spread is this adoption? In 2009 we saw the first public implementation of LTE in Norway and Sweden, 4 years after the commercial introduction of WiMAX. Fast forward 3 years and we have heard statements from nearly every major carrier worldwide concerning their plans to adopt LTE. In the US the "Big 4" have each spoke of their 4G LTE rollout plans, with most already well into their path of fire. Even Yota, the Russian telecommunications provider, who built the worlds largest WiMAX ...

    If you've never owned a tablet, there's no device that we could recommend more than Apple's New iPad. We rarely give any product we review a full score of 5 stars out of 5, so there's no mistaking that this is simply one of the best tablets you can purchase at the moment. No product is perfect though, and Apple's past versions of the iPad are also good choices to pick from. With Apple's recent decision to sell their New iPad along with last year's iPad 2, and with the ease that you can find the First-Gen iPad on eBay for a good price, choices can become complicated for any first-time ...

    We're hoping to get news in just a week or two about the start of Sprint's LTE network in the US. So far, we've been focusing a lot on what phones we expect to see arrive to support the network; most recently, those rumors have been looking to the HTC EVO One. While the available hardware is going to be very important for how Sprint's launch of LTE is perceived, the actual reach of the network itself is no less critical. A newly-leaked image purports to show us where Sprint is hoping to deploy its network, and some comments from a company executive give us a little insight into what may be ...

    Now that AT&T's lined up to get the just-revealed One X, and T-Mobile's taken claim to the One S (with Verizon always fed a steady stream of quality hardware), HTC's plans for Sprint seem to be up in the air, especially with the once cutting-edge EVO 3D closing in on its one-year launch anniversary. Well we've now learned from a trusted source that a high-end handset is in fact on its way to Sprint from the House of One, and it's codenamed the HTC Jewel. Details of the Jewel are still very thin, but we do know that its a large device with a high definition display akin to the One X -- ...

    It was just about two months ago when we first heard of the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. T-Mobile formally announced the handset at the CES, which will be be compatible with high-speed 42Mbps HSPA+ data where available. More recently, we learned that the Blaze would arrive sometime in March, and then just last week T-Mobile put up a new page for the phone on its site, promoting it as coming soon. It was all pretty clear we were getting right down to the wire for the phone's release, and now T-Mobile has made its plans official, tweeting out its release schedule for the Blaze 4G. The Blaze 4G ...

    The ACCC was claiming yesterday that Apple was falsely advertising the iPad in Australia, using the "4G" moniker in its name despite the fact that Australians will not be able to get 4G because of spectrum incompatibilities with the carriers. Apple has reportedly reached an agreement with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission according to which the Cupertino-based company will refund early adopters if they feel they were misled by the claimed "false advertisement". Furthermore, when the case returns to court in May, Apple will fight to defend the New iPad's name. "Ultimately ...

    A large number of smartphone enthusiasts seem to be relatively sour at the announcement of any smartphone lacking a front facing camera. This response is certainly understandable, as the front facing camera is another feature on a long list of capabilities, and a feature with no particularly solid reason for not including it in a modern smartphone. That being said, the front facing camera currently seems to stand rather low on the list of system critical features consumers demand. With the primary focus of this secondary camera aimed at video calling and the explosion of recent smartphones ...

    The iPad has earned its reputation. While there is strong competition from the likes of Samsung and Asus, neither of these companies have (yet) been able to rival the iPad in terms of screen resolution and software experience. Granted, 2012 will be the year where we see an all-out arms race between tablet purveyors to bring screen resolution, battery life, speed, and form factor to unseen levels, but as of today, in many areas, the iPad still has a tremendous shadow cast on the tablet sector. BOX CONTENTS After taking the new iPad out of the box, its added weight and thickness didn't seem ...

    Many Windows Phone fans on AT&T were happy to find out that the carrier finally announced the availability date and contract price for the highly anticipated Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II. Thing is that the Lumia 900 is $100 cheaper on contract than the Titan II, which begs the question: why would you spend more? It turns out that the $100 difference between the two will still exist if you want to go with the phone only, without a contract. The Nokia Lumia 900 will reportedly go for $449.99 while the HTC Titan II will cost you $549.99. The same question remains: is the larger ...

    Now that the HTC Vivid has been updated with Sense 3.6 and Ice Cream Sandwich, we are returning with a new video to take a closer look at the changes therein. Overall, the device seems to be snappier and the slight changes to Sense are for the better on all fronts. We would have liked to see a more unified ICS interface or even Sense 4.0, but HTC has made it very clear they do not want to confuse or alienate their existing customer base. Unfortunately, a software update cannot change hardware issues, and our review score still stands.

    Fans of underserved mobile platforms, rejoice! AT&T today announced the impending availability of two important flagship Windows Phones: the Titan II from HTC, and the Lumia 900 from Nokia. Each is available starting April 8, and each offers its own take on a premium Windows Phone experience. The biggest difference is pricing: HTC's offering comes in at $199, a full Benjamin more expensive than the more-buzzworthy Lumia. Why is there such a divergence in price between these similarly specced phones, and who would opt for the Titan over the Lumia? Let's take a break from Android and iOS and ...

    As they say, good things come in pairs! After officially announcing the availability date for the Nokia Lumia 900, AT&T is pulling a double by letting people know that the HTC Titan II will land the same day: April 8. Both the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II were announced at CES so it is just normal that they become available the same day on AT&T's 4G LTE network. The HTC Titan II will go for $199.99 on a two-year contract -- which is $100 more than the Lumia 900 -- but you will get a larger screen and camera. Specs: the Titan II sports the largest camera currently available on a ...

    Now that more and more recent rumors and reports are indicating an April 8/April 9 launch for the Nokia Lumia 900 on AT&T, this exact bit can only come as a further hint that you don't have to wait much longer for your 4G LTE Windows Phone made by Espoo. If you follow the source link below you'll land on a special "Coming Soon" page for the device over at the carrier. You'll find the most notable features of the phone there but what you will not find, sadly, is an official price or availability date. Still, it should be pretty close; usually these pages indicate a launch just around the ...

    Expectations are high that the next iPhone released by Apple will include support for 4G LTE data. Besides just seeming like the obvious next step for the product, LTE has been mentioned time and time again in rumors targeting the next iPhone. What we've been lacking is much in the way of evidence that actually makes the connection between the next iPhone and LTE. Some text strings have been just been uncovered that may provide just that association, included in the iOS 5.1 we're already using. The relevant text includes various system messages making numerous mentions of 4G in relation to ...

    A bold move from Apple back with the release of the first-generation iPad, was to allow iPhone apps to run on it. Apps would box-into the display and allow you to even zoom into them to take over the iPad's full screen. Sadly, the problem was that zooming-in would turn any app into an old Nintendo 8-bit game show full of pixels. Apple's launch of the New iPad has changed that. You'll notice in our following video that if your iPhone apps have been enhanced to support the iPhone's Retina Display, zooming them into the New iPad's Retina Display will give you an image that's just as sharp. ...

    We first heard of Android Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0.5 in February when French carrier SFR ousted a table with information that claimed the Galaxy Nexus (and Nexus S) will get this version over-the-air sometime in March. Now Android 4.0.5 is back again and this time is with the occasion of a rumor according to which Verizon is testing an update for their LTE Galaxy Nexus. If all things go according to plan, the 4.0.5 build will be unleashed upon phones early next month with lots of fixes and improvements, among which solving the audio reboot and data stability issues. If the pieces of ...
