RESTON, VA -- June 1, 2010 -- Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced that it will carry the highly anticipated HTC EVO™ 4G when it officially launches on the Sprint network beginning June 4. HTC EVO 4G is the latest Android smartphone from Sprint and has the distinction of being America’s first 4G phone, touting data speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G networks, making it the fastest mobile phone on the market today.
In addition to operating on both Sprint’s blazing-fast 4G network and its 3G Mobile Broadband Network (depending on user location), the Android-powered HTC EVO 4G comes equipped with a high-speed Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 1GHz processor and the newest version of the intuitive HTC Sense experience, which allows users to aggregate multiple social media channels into one organized stream of updates. HTC EVO 4G’s built-in mobile hotspot capability allows up to eight Wi-Fi equipped devices to simultaneously connect to either Sprint’s 3G or 4G network.
The sleek and sexy device has an impressive 4.3-inch touchscreen, which makes it ideal for watching movies and videos. The handy built-in kickstand props the screen upright for easy viewing on-the-go. And with its micro-HDMI port, users can also easily plug directly into an HDTV when they want to watch their movies on the big screen at home. HTC EVO 4G also boasts two cameras – an 8.0 megapixel camera with HD-capable video capture and a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera for high-quality video chat.
