The HTC EVO 4G LTE saga is about to come to a sweet conclusion, as Sprint will finally have the phone for sale starting May 18. If you’re a firm believer that those who come the earliest to the store will get to gloat the most, Sprint has posted some details on store locations that will carry the phone, as well as their opening hours, which will make your mission easier to accomplish.
According to information posted on its website, the following Sprint stores will open on May 18 at 8AM, with sales of the HTC EVO 4G LTE set to commence straight away. So there’s hopefully time to snatch one on your way to work. As for the locations of the stores, Sprint has listed the [...]
We’ve covered everything you could ever possibly want to know about the Samsung Galaxy S3 and its expected availability in the US. As more information trickles in from various sources, it’s time for an update of which carrier in the country is likely to become the first to offer the stunning flagship phone. Last week, rumors were already abundant on how Sprint was apparently very keen on releasing a variant of Samsung Galaxy S3 way before the others. While we don’t know yet whether that will materialize, there are now reports confirming the phone making its way to Sprint, along with the ordered specs.
Pocketnow was first to spot Sprint’s [...]
You probably all know that Sprint’s 4G WiMax network was a total fiasco, causing the carrier to lose ground in the competition with Verizon and AT&T, both of which deployed LTE networks. Sprint abandoned WiMax, accepted defeat, and announced the launch of its own 4G LTE network a while back. But it seems that its old Wimax network will not be completely shut down after all.
Sprint’s subsidiaries Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile will offer a slew of Wimax-enabled “affordable high-end phones” in the near future. The first such device has already been officially unveiled and will hit the market on May 31.
The HTC EVO V 4G will cost $299.99 with no contract, which [...]
We last reported about the HTC EVO 4G LTE on Sprint when the pre-order page for the phone went live, though going through with the order wasn’t possible back then. Guess what, the carrier now allows customers to pre-order the HTC EVO 4G LTE in all of its kickstand-goodness.
The $199.99 with a 2-year contract price tag matches the price of HTC’s high-end phones from other carriers. Unfortunately, Sprint is still keeping the launch date of the eagerly anticipated phone under wraps. Given the fact that AT&T’s HTC One X has already been released this week, we think that Sprint will want to push its variant of the phone out as soon as possible. The latest rumors [...]
The Galaxy Nexus is arguably one of the most popular Android-based smartphones of the past few months, offering a “pure Google experience”, a very nice design, and some pretty strong hardware under the hood.
Sprint’s own take on the Nexus came a little bit late to the show, but it still managed to sell like hotcakes, as we reported a couple of weeks back. Unfortunately, just days after its official release, the handheld managed to disappoint many of its adopters, coming with a very annoying bug.
Many users experienced problems with connecting the device to Sprint’s 3G network, which was a huge slip-up and a major annoyance. Fortunately, the carrier moved really [...]
Just a couple of days ago, we reported a rumor about Sprint’s kickstand-touting, drool-inducing EVO 4G LTE becoming available from May 18. When we brought you the rumor, it was just that – an unconfirmed piece of gossip, albeit coming from a supposedly reliable source.
But if you’re eager to get your hands on Sprint’s new EVO, you’ll be happy to know that we now have another source confirming the May 18 launch date. Even better, we have some hard evidence, in the form of some leaked shots of the promotional material that will adorn Sprint’s stores for the EVO 4G LTE debut.
The leak comes from the EVO enthusiasts at GoodandEVO.com, who claim that they received [...]
The HTC One X is one of the most exciting Android-based smartphones to hit the market by this summer, but Sprint’s own take on HTC’s flagship, the EVO 4G LTE, might capture the regular geek’s attention even more.
Although it won’t come with a quad-core processor, but rather with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip, the EVO 4G LTE will hold three big aces up its sleeve. I’m talking, of course, about the 4G LTE connectivity, the SD card slot (lacking on the standard One X), and the kickstand found on Sprint’s EVO super-phone.
With all this in mind, it’s pretty difficult not to get excited about the smartphone’s future release, which is why we are glad to [...]
The Motorola Photon 4G was Moto’s flagship device on Sprint less than a year ago, and, although it was quite a nice-looking and powerful phone at the time, it soon became outdated. However, as the device managed to draw some new customers to Sprint, it now seems that a sequel is in the works. At least that’s what the guys at PocketNow are claiming, saying that they picked up on a rumor from a “trusted source” about an upcoming Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE.
I know, that’s one of the most horrible smartphone names I ever heard, and it’s practically impossible to remember it without writing it down, but, for now, you shouldn’t worry too much about it. I mean, we don’t even [...]
It appears the lure of owning a Pure Google device on Sprint’s soon-to-be expanded 4G LTE network is just too great for many. The pre-order gate for the Galaxy Nexus was opened just a couple of days ago, and Sprint has already announced that they run out of pre-ordered inventory units of Google’s premier device.
The Galaxy Nexus on Sprint came a little bit late to the party, but that apparently didn’t extinguish the lust that many have for the curvaceous phone. Four months after the Pure Google phone’s launch, April 22 will be the day when Sprint ships out those pre-ordered units of Galaxy Nexus. If you missed the window, Sprint said you can still claim your 4G [...]
Despite the fact that both Samsung and HTC produce a wide range of Android devices, from affordable ones to the more expensive lines, the mere mention of the two names immediately conjures up images of top of the crop smartphones. LG, on the other hand, is not quite up there yet as a brand. It’s not surprising to see the Korean manufacturer trying to make the most of its entry level smartphone offerings. The LG Optimus Elite, which hits Sprint and Virgin Mobile, is the company’s latest attempt to dominate the lower end of the Android sphere.
The LG Optimus Elite sports a respectable 3.5-inch screen and 320 x 480 resolution. Under the hood, you’ll find an 800MHz [...]
