Ever since the iPhone came on the market companies have been searching for the “iPhone Killer”. First it was the PalmPre, a nice phone, but didn’t have a chance at slowing the roll of Apple’s iPhone. Lately we’ve seen a number of Android phones flood the market from Motorola, Samsung and HTC. The platform seems to be picking up more steam, and the release of the Droid on Verizon was a highly touted smart phone. Now it seems that we have the most powerful phone of them all, the HTC EVO 4G.

Features of the EVO 4G:

  • 480×800 4.3″ TFT LCD
  • Snapdragon QSD8650 1GHz processor (same processor as HD2 and Nexus One)
  • 1GB of built-in memory
  • 512MB RAM
  • Longer battery life than competing models
  • 8 megapixel camera with flash
  • Front facing 1.3 megapixel camera
  • 802.11b/g WiFi
  • 8GB MicroSD Card
  • HDMI out
  • Android 2.1 OS
  • Sprint’s First 4G Phone

This phone combined with their new $69,99/month Any Mobile, Anytime w/ Everything Data Plan make me think I’ll be switching to Sprint pretty soon once my contract with Verizon is over.¬† This looks pretty similar in specs to the Nexus One, with a few improvements. Biggest improvement of them all is adding the WiMAX support which means it has 4G support. Too bad where I live it probably won’t be rolled out for some time.

What do you think of the phone? iPhone Killer? Let us know in the comments!
