Oprah Has a 'Fancy' 4G Phone That You Can't Have

Yesterday, Oprah was talking about collecting pledges for her NoPhoneZone initiative. The idea is that you promise to make your car a 'no phone zone' by signing a petition that says you won't text in the car and if you need to make a call, you'll either pull over or use a hands-free kit.

It's a great cause but it's not as interesting as say, an HTC EVO 4G -- you know, Sprint's 4G smartphone that isn't due out until the summer time. Oprah whipped the highly anticipated phone out while demonstrating how easy it is to pledge to the NoPhoneZone initiative via text. How did Oprah get her hands on one of these? And how come she's not giving them away to everyone in the audience (especially the ones with eBay accounts)?

Take a brief peek at the device below.

    I think it would be pretty sweet if when you got in your car, it deactivated your phone unless you had a hands-free device installed... and sent anyone calling to a voice mail stating that your driving and you cannot take their call. Obviously unless you had the hands-free device installed.

    I'm not trying to be a goody two shoes, I seriously see at least 100 people a day driving with their knees and their heads DOWN texting. That is a seriously friggin problem. From 16 year olds to 50+... I see it all. Everyday.

    she's a billionaire...she can afford to have items built one-run, straight-from-patent if she wants. I'm surprised she's not flying around in her starship plinking cities off the map at any given second to be honest.

    Funny. I'm installing 4G towers for Sprint and T-Mobile in LA County, Orange County and San Diego County. We are getting ready.

    Going to be fast. Finally. They better bump up that 5GB data cap that will go quick!
