  • Sprint Evo 4G To Start Getting OTA Froyo Aug 3rd

    We’re a little late on this story, but better late than never right? Our Evo forums are all a buzz about the news that Froyo (Android 2.2) is officially coming to the Evo starting next week, as early as Tuesday 8/3. There are reports saying that it will be a gradual rollout, with all phones […]

  • Android Updates: Froyo Official On Nexus One & Minor Update Coming For Evo Users

    There are a few Android updates coming out over the next few days. First of all, the Google Nexus One is finally getting an official update to Froyo, with the official version being FRF83. There’s been two leaked builds over the last few weeks, FRF50 and FRF72, but this one is rumored to be official and is actually coming OTA to those stock users. Google also released their source code and its up on AOSP now. Now onto the Evo, there’s reports showing up that are suggesting another OTA update is coming for it on June 28th. This is said to just be bug fixes and somehow “enhance wifi”, which could mean 802.11n support officially. Its also said to improve battery life and fix some Exchange issues. With Froyo finally becoming official on the Nexus One today, we highly doubt we’ll see it on the Evo by next week, but hopefully within a month or two!

  • Sprint Evo Screen Separation?

    There’s been some reports going around of people experiencing glass separation issues on their new Sprint Evo’s. There’s been some people in our forums discussing this same issue. In the image about, you can see that its usually the lower portion of the screen, and while it may not look bad right now, it would probably get worse over time and allow dust and condensation to get under the glass, which is never good. There’s been no official word from HTC or Sprint yet regarding this issue. Read more…

  • Verizon Droid X or Sprint Evo?

Meet the Motorola Droid Xtreme, or Droid X for short. We’ve heard rumors about it before, but now there’s finally some decent images of the phone, which will feature a 1GHz Snapdragon processor (some reports are saying a 750MHz TI OMAP3630 processor though), a 4.3″ capacitive touchscreen, Android 2.1, possibly an 8MP camera, and a new version of MotoBlur.

  • 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. Read more for some pictures…

  • Sprint Still Considering LTE Alongside WiMAX?

    Sprint likes to advertise that it is leading innovation by starting the nation’s first 4G network with WiMAX, but now it appears that they’re second guessing themselves. With the other three major U.S. carriers confirming they’re going with LTE as their 4G solution, Sprint is probably getting worried about their decision to go with WiMAX, which would leave them the only carrier with that technology as of now. On Wednesday, Sprint issues a Request For Proposal (RFP) from 4G equipment manufacturers, which included LTE. Read more…

    We all know the HTC Evo 4G is coming to Sprint this summer, but now the latest rumor is that it will hit stores around mid-June, more specifically June 13th. The other rumor is that the WiMax (4G) will be a $10-$20 add-on, which would include the device’s 8-device HotSpot capability. There is some confusion with this. Some are saying that 4G will be included in the current data plans (kylelerner even confirmed this with a rep) and that the add-on will only be for the HotSpot service. Only time will tell!
