    HTC's EVO 4G on Sprint is getting Gingerbread, and it really looks like it's getting it soon. An apparently official Gingerbread ROM has already leaked, and we've been hearing rumors trying to tie down just when the update will finally drop. Things finally looked like Sprint was ready to send out the update last week, when the carrier updated its website to indicate that at least new orders for the smartphone would ship running Gingerbread, but it quickly denounced that move as an error. Now a leaked document gives us a new date to expect Gingerbread: June 3. According to the leak, as of ...

    Back in April, a ROM image for HTC's EVO 4G on Sprint leaked, apparently an official build of Android Gingerbread for the smartphone. Since that time, we've been waiting for Sprint to finalize its testing of the update and release the code for its users who would prefer not to flash their expensive phones with files stumbled upon on the internet. While there has yet to be any official adjournment of when to expect the EVO's Gingerbread to arrive, a recent change to Sprint's website suggests that the release may be imminent. Sprint has updated the promotional blurb next to the the EVO 4G in ...

    With the recent ROM leaks for HTC Kingdom, Doubleshot, and Sensation, all of which run HTC's latest Sense 3.0, developers have been hard at work porting aspects of the ROM to other devices. While this ROM is brought over from the HTC Kingdom, a port is also underway for the Doubleshot ROM and Sensation ROM as well. Sense 3.0 comes to HTC's Evo 4G thanks to a port from the HTC Kingdom ROM done by XDA member XxXViRuSXxX. As is typical with initial releases of ported ROMs, there are a number of minor to moderate issues with the ROM such as the weather app not functioning properly (the widget ...

    What do you get when you take an HTC HD2, add 4G WiMax connectivity, a front facing camera, and use Android instead of Windows Mobile? You get the HTC EVO 4G! Sprint has raced the EVO 4G to market, giving them the distinction of being the only carrier in America to carry a 4G smartphone. Along with that, the EVO 4G offers many other claims to fame: it can do live video chat, it's the first Android device to natively support high quality YouTube, it has a kickstand, and it has an HDMI port for outputting video to a projector or larger television. On paper, the EVO 4G is a monster: it's ...

    The Motorola Atrix 4G doesn't have be the only smartphone capable of converting into a desktop-like workstation, thanks to a bit of hardware and software. Industrious XDA user Lokifish Marz has come up with a way to do likewise with an EVO 4G, a keyboard and mouse, plus a fresh install of CyanogenMod 7, as seen in this video. It includes a special desktop-like web browser, keyboard mapping for all of Android's buttons, the ability to take calls over the speakerphone, and more. To get this working you're going to have to set aside a couple of hours, as the list of steps is pretty large. ...

    We know thanks to an HTC rep that answered a customer's email that the HTC EVO 4G will get its Android 2.3 Gingerbread update in the second quarter, alongside the HTC Thunderbolt. It just so happens that what appears to be an official Android 2.3 Gingerbread ROM for the HTC EVO 4G has been leaked and is ready to download. It appears to be version 2.3.3 of the platform with several improvements besides the Gingerbread upgrade. As usually with leaked ROMs, we advise you to stay away from them as they might be early builds or test ROMs, but if you are really itching, you can find it at the ...

    The latest version of the HTC Sense interface for Android, version 3.0, brings some pretty significant changes and will debut on the EVO 3D and the Sensation. Chief among these changes are a new lock screen, new widgets, a new home screen configuration, and many little enhancements to the stock programs you use everyday. If you're rocking a current generation phone like the Desire HD (Inspire 4G), EVO 4G, Thunderbolt, or even the brand new Incredible S, you're probably wondering whether you'll get an upgrade to Sense 3.0. First, a bit of history. Most of the time (but not always) when HTC ...

    Both last year's HTC EVO 4G on Sprint and the fresh Thunderbolt on Verizon are set to receive their Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread treat sometime this upcoming second quarter, according to an e-mail from HTC in response to a customer inquiry. Initially shipping with Android 2.1 Eclair, then upgraded to Froyo, the EVO 4G will get Gingerbread "in the second quarter of 2011 (anywhere from the beginning of April, to the end of June)", said an HTC rep. The same time-frame applies to the Froyo powered Thunderbolt too. HTC has been solid in offering platform updates to its devices so a Q2 ...

    Sure, you have your choice of options when it comes to getting the latest Android 2.3 on your HTC EVO 4G, including CyanogenMod 7 with WiMAX support - we've even seen Honeycomb forced to run on EVO hardware (albeit not very well at all) - but there's still no official update available for users who feel more comfortable running their phones on carrier-approved firmware. HTC customer service has recently let slip that Gingerbread for the EVO is currently in the works, with a release likely before the end of Q2 2011. A user reaching out in an email to HTC for a status update on the ...

    One of the coolest things about the HTC EVO 4G is its HDMI-out port which, one would think, lets you watch whatever is on your Evo's screen on whatever it's plugged into. Unfortunately, only specific apps with custom coding could output via HDMI. Various app developers got to work trying to change this, and initially did, but at the cost of requiring a rooted device running a custom kernel. With the recent update to FullHDMI, that's no longer the case -- but there are a few catches. FullHDMI 1.3.1 is now available and allows for HDMI mirroring without any down-and-dirty hackery. ...

    Part of the core of what makes Android Android has been its open-source development, creating a thriving community of hackers and tinkerers. Much of this scene is fed by the periodic release of the Android source code, letting developers adapt the software for not-yet-supported handsets. This seems so intrinsically Android that it's almost shocking to learn that Google is not planning on releasing Honeycomb code anytime soon, fearing that unauthorized smartphone ports would create a user experience too awful to allow. Business Week reports that Google has been telling hardware companies ...

    Update: Adding credence to the rumor of Sprint getting the Nexus S, Sprint has a page located at now.sprint.com/nexus. Spring only puts up these sorts of pages for real device. CTIA is just around the corner, and we'll be there come later this month. Sprint has an event planned where they're likely to unveil some new products, including two new phones, if an Engadget Tipster is to believed. First up we have a WiMax-capable version of the Nexus S, which would be pretty exciting since we really like the Nexus S, and the inclusion of WiMax 4G will make it even better. We saw the Nexus S ...

    Remember when we first got wind of the HTC EVO 4G specs and started to drool over the possibility of HDMI-out? Watching YouTube, TV.com, and video content on our big-screen through our smartphone. That was to have been geek Nirvana! Alas, it wasn't everything that we'd hoped. The EVO's HDMI was limited to video playback only -- you couldn't view your photos, play games, surf the web, or anything like that. Think that's just unacceptable? So did TeamWin, a group a developers who put together a solution that unlocks full HDMI mirroring. What's "HDMI mirroring" you ask? Simply put, anything ...

    With all the factors that weigh into smartphone performance, it can be maddening trying to determine which provider offers the highest-throughput data network. Available bandwidth varies regionally, by time of day, and in the face of network maintenance. PCWorld and Novarum decided to evaluate the current condition of wireless data in the United States, and after 177,000 measurements, they finally have some results to show, putting T-Mobile and its HSPA+ network up against Verizon's LTE for the top spot. The tests looked both at 4G data modems for laptops, as well as some of the ...

    When Android Honeycomb was released it came along with notice from Google that it would be for tablets only. Since it would be opensourced, just like other versions of Android, people could do with it as they wished. They were quick to follow up that Android Ice Cream Sandwich would be coming soon for smartphones which would incorporate all of the improvements realized in Honeycomb. Shortly thereafter Google released a beta of the Honeycomb SDK -- the tool kit that developers need to write apps (or update existing ones) to work with, and take full advantage of the new OS. Along with the ...
