HTC EVO 4G Breaks Sprint Sales Records

The HTC EVO 4G just launched on Sprint and the device is already breaking records. Apparently the attraction of the first 4G handset was strong enough to break Sprint's first day sales records.

Packing Android 2.1, the highly anticipated device is the world's first 4G handset. The smartphone broke records and achieved the title of "Best Ever First Day Sales" at Sprint. The previous record holder was the Palm Pre (last year) and before that was the Samsung Instinct.

Aside from 2.1, the EVO 4G boasts a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a4.3-inch (480x800) TFT LCD, an 8-megapixel camera that comes with a flash and is capable of shooting 720p video, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, 802.11b/g, and an 8GB microSD card.

    I WANT ONE! But, I have T-Mobile. So I'm stuck with the HTC HD2. Same phone, only better :P : 4G, 8 mega-pixel vs 5 for HD2; 1.3 front camera vs none on HD2, ANDROID Based vs Windows based. Shall I go on? I'm Just a big cry baby....

    emtownsendCut the permanent $10/month luxury tax on it and I might!Still cheaper than Verizon and ATT-Free mobile-to-mobile for the win. I pay 150/month for TWO phones WITH unlimited data and WiMax, I believe thats how much one Verizon unlimited data/talk plan is.

    Friend of mine picked one of these up. The screen is be-a-utiful (large, high res, nice color depth). It looks huge in person, but when I compare it to my Window Mobile 6.1 clunker (Motorola Q Global), it is practically the _same_ size.

    Love my Evo. Did a new iPhone come out? :)

    4G is in several cities. And another round of rollouts is coming soon. The 3G is VERY fast too. This phone is beyond Incredible. Android rocks. But it won't matter to the Apple lemmings. Nothing can beat any Apple with their Fischer Price gadget experience.

    This phone is also HUGE! I don't think I could see myself carrying one. I guess if you have a holster but i like to slip mine in my pocket. Awesome specs otherwise. Plus, it isn't hard to beat a Palm device in number of sales. Also, seems funny they didn't mention what the figure was.
