    If you are planning on buying an HTC EVO 4G from Sprint any time soon, you will be surprised to find out that your handset is running a slightly different (higher) version number than the one everyone has. While the latest software version for the device is 3.29.651.5, HTC EVO 4G's purchased (sometime) in November will have the higher version in order to offer support for a new manufacturer part. While there is absolutely no indication (yet) on what the switched part is, users should benefit from the same user experience with nothing changed. The new version 3.30.651.2 will still be the ...

    Looks like the Sprint EVO 4G will receive an official update as the ROM already leaked with version number 3.30.651.2 and Radio 2.15.00.09.01 - which looks to be the same. The update seems to be a minor bug-fix release with improvements to the camera but also brings a newer kernel and hBoot version. XDA Developers already got busy with the leak and it's available in both Odex and Deodex versions with root and busybox. As it is generally the case of Official ROMs and leaks, it's just a matter of a couple of days until the leaked ROM will be available officially from Sprint for your ...

    The HTC EVO 4G has not only been a huge hit for Sprint, but also for Android in general. It has sold out on countless occasions and even received an award from Popular Mechanics. Although out for slightly over 4 months now, the EVO 4G still seems to be going strong. If you've been strategically waiting for the perfect moment to pick one up, now may be the time. You can grab the EVO 4G from Amazon for just $99.99 (with new service plan), that's $100 less than what you would pay directly to Sprint. Update: the Samsung Epic 4G is also on sale for $99.99 (thanks for the tip, Vivid Pruitt) ...

    A Samsung executive has reportedly promised a ten-fold increase in AMOLED display production starting in July of next year, when its new facility dedicated to their manufacture will supposedly increase capacity from three million to 30 million screens per month. Lee Woo-Jong, vice president of display marketing, went on to say that he believes that devices using the so-called active-matrix organic light-emitting diode screens will grow by 35 times, to 700 million, by 2015. Samsung builds AMOLED displays for both itself and its competitors, making recent shortages a potential conflict of ...

    Sprint will begin selling its popular, first-generation WiMax handset, the HTC EVO 4G, online once again early next week, according a tweet from the company's official Twitter account. EVO has proved to be in high demand since its early June release, regularly selling out online only to be restocked days or weeks later. Potential customers may have more success finding the mammoth slab at a local brick-and-mortar store, some of which still reportedly have the device in stock. Now that Sprint is on the verge of releasing its second WiMax-capable smartphone, the QWERTY-packing Samsung Galaxy ...

    Some Sprint customers are complaining that the company's top-of-the-line smartphone, the WiMax-powered EVO 4G, has a defective microUSB port that can sometimes come loose and make charging impossible. So far, threads devoted to the issue in both Sprint's and HTC's support forums have hit three pages apiece, with anecdotal evidence suggesting that once the problem occurs, only replacing the entire unit provides a permanent fix. While it is not clear how many devices are actually affected by the issue, HTC apparently has been telling customers that they are protected by their one-year ...

    If you have an EVO you might be interested in this little hack to make the icons in your status bar look smoother, more animated, more informative, and more in-style with icons you see elsewhere on the EVO. Changes include the battery icon which now shows 101 power levels, a smooth charging animation, animated synchronization icon, two additional frames on the GPS acquiring animation, new download and upload animations, and new adb icon, sim, and notify SD card icons. To see what the animated icons will look like and to download the file, head over to XDA-Developers. A few things to note: ...

    For those who did not wait for Sprint to release the official Android 2.2 Froyo build and had to download the unofficial, non-final build of the Flash-supporting ROM from HTC's servers, there is a fix in tow for your HTC EVO 4G. However, the fix does require a full wipe of your device, but it should rectify any instabilities you have by installing the official version. This will require you to be tethered to a PC to install. The fix is available over at XDA-Developers and you can download the .EXE file from the links there. Directions are also given over at XDA. (via: Engadget)

    The HTC EVO 4G was rooted the same day that it was originally released -- and custom ROMs free flowed to the rooted devices shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, after you flash a factory ROM you typically loose your root access. It should come as no surprise, now that the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update is rolling out over-the-air (OTA) it, too, has been rooted. First off, the following applies only to those who have already rooted their EVO. If you haven't, the following isn't for you. However, if you aren't rooted, but are interested in doing so, you can get all the steps you need at ...

    Of course, you can easily get the HTC HD2, of which the EVO 4G is based off of, that runs Windows Mobile, but if you prefer the looks of Sprint's first WiMax phone, there's a Windows Mobile knockoff for that. The fake packs the same screen size and resolution--at 4.3-inch and with a WVGA 800 X 480 pixel resolution--that the HD2 and EVO 4G pack, but other hardware features are questionable. A lack of a front-facing camera, no details on the CPU, and uncertainty over the rear camera's specs, and no HDMI output make the device a bit on the sketchy side, but if you like the industrial design ...

    Previously you heard from Joe Levi on why he uses a Nexus One as his daily driver, and from Brandon Miniman on his choice of the iPhone 4. Now I'd like to tell you why it is the EVO 4G that can be found in my pocket each day. As someone who has a huge weakness for anything new in the tech world, I've owned many phones over the past few years. Some of these devices were mine only for a very brief period. I found myself switching phones every month or two, until I landed on the iPhone. However, I recently left the iPhone behind so that I could enter the Android world. This transition has ...

    After having announced that the HTC EVO 4G Android smartphone would get an update to Android 2.2 Froyo, Sprint customers are beginning to see Froyo updates available on their Android handsets by doing a manual check under their Settings menu. Sprint's probably waiting to see the results of the upgrade process for enthusiasts who are doing to gain speed improvements as well as run Adobe Flash 10.1 on their handsets before pushing the update out to the masses, which is probably a good idea considering the last OTA update was temporarily pulled due to some problems. If you can't wait, you can ...

    Sprint announced that it will be the first US carrier to launch Android 2.2 Froyo with an update scheduled for August 3 for the HTC EVO 4G. The EVO 4G was launched to great media buzz earlier this summer with HTC Sense and Android 2.1 on a spacious 4.3-inch LCD display. With Android 2.2, the EVO 4G will be capable of playing Adobe Flash 10.1 content and have a richer, more desktop-like browsing experience with that browser plugin, along with numerous speed improvements to enhance the user experience. OTA notifications will be pushed on August 3, but if you want Froyo early -- and opt to be ...

    YouTube, in partnership with Sundance, Ridley Scott and director Kevin MacDonald, is embarking on an ambitious project on July 24th. The project asks users to take their cameras out and tell a story about their lives and the winning entries will be selected to appear in an edited documentary with footage created by users on their own recording equipment. With modern phones like the HTC EVO 4G, the Motorola Droid X, the iPhone 4, Microsoft KIN Two, and the Galaxy S variants capable of shooting videos in HD, modern geeks would make for great filmmakers. Now, all you need is a story--your ...
