The HTC Incredible [and EVO] is coming to kick the iPhone into last week

I really like my little Blackberry Storm but the only bit thats a bit naff is the camera. In dark light conditions the photo quality is very bad and the video is just generally a bit crap. I like just about everything else about it, but it is a year old so it’s time to start looking at what new smart phones are out there.

The iPhone 3GS is a nice phone but it has so many shortcomings; no memory expansion, poor video, naff OS, iTunes is the main PITA as I sync my music and movies across several home servers and media devices iTunes just blows it to pieces every time. I detest it(unes)

So, when I found the HTC Evo 4g was announced at the CTIA Conference in Vegas. I was initially excited by the claims of 4G. But when I actually looked at the phones specs… wow! It’s fantastic and It ticks every single box for me.

  • 8mb 720p quality camera for photo + video
  • 800 x 480 4.3-inch TFT LCD
  • 1Ghz Snapdragon QSD8650 processor
  • Android Operating System
  • HDMI Video out (wow!)
  • Hot SPot Tethering (so I can just plug it into any laptop and Voila instant broadband speed internet on the laptop via the Evo itself)
  • second camera on front for full 2-way video calling

How cool does that list sound?

Being the world’s first 4G enabled Android smart phone, the HTC Evo has the ability to not only compete against the Mighty Blackberry and iPhone but it has stones to absolutely pound them both into the ground.


This phone is going to take the fight to Apple, and the HTC video suggests round one could already have been awarded to HTC.

Trouble is no 4G coverage in my Hometown 🙁

So, it;s the next best thing – HTC Incredible from Verizon for me…. [more to follow when I actually get my hands on one]
