When Sprint announced their first ever 4G handset at CTIA in March 2010, they dropped a bombshell on the mobile world. The HTC Evo 4G is a device that introduces a lot of firsts when compared to other North American handsets. This is the first Android phone we've seen with aforementioned 4G capabilities which should please a lot of fans looking to get more out of their mobile data.

It's hard not to drool when looking at the spec sheet. The 8megapixel camera it comes equipped with can shoot HD-quality video: truly an amazing feat packed into a device as small as it is. Playback of HD video is also available and can be fed to an external source using the onboard HDMI-out port (cable not included). There's also a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front that should come in handy for video chatting down the line.

You'll be flying through all your tasks with the 1ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor powering the HTC Evo 4G. With the prospect of performing so many data intensive actions at the same time, you'll appreciate this wealthily-powered device. You also get 1GB of ROM and 512MB of RAM built in to help eat through all those apps you'll be downloading through the Android market.

HTC updated their senstational SenseUI to work with a latest version Android 2.1 update that includes great new multitouch capabilities in Google Maps, the Browser, Gallery, and more. The latest version improves on everything that we saw in the 1.5-compatible SenseUI and adds a lot more usability features to appeal to a wider range of people.

Enjoy all of this on a great looking 4.3inch capacitive touchscreen with 800x480 resolution and you have a phone that you probably won't be able to resist buying one - especially as it's available NOW from Sprint!
