Sprint HTC Evo 4G Teardown

Now that the Sprint Evo 4G is getting into people’s hands, its come time for someone to do a full teardown of the device, and the folks over at ifixit have done just that.

One of the interesting things to note is that it has the Broadcom BCM4329 chip, which is capable of 802.11n, even though the Evo is only advertised as supporting 802.11g (same as the Nexus One, which is also capable of N speeds), as well as FM connectivity. This is the same chip found in the Nexus One, but the N1’s is labeled as BCM4329EKUBG. This page lists Broadcom’s specs of that chip. Here’s a PDF showing some more details of the Broadcom chip. Note that these features are probably not functional out of the box, but will probably be available at some point, either officially or by the hacking community. Here is some information regarding the new digitizer by Atmel.
