HTC Evo 4G runs on the Google owned Android operating system and it is stated to offer download speeds of about 10 times of what the 3G technology offered. The manufacturers claim that the phone will allow its users to make video calls and watch live world cup matches on their phone. The pinch to access zoom and easy data reflowing make it even easier to view web pages. The device comes pre-installed with Qik Chat App that optimizes the video calling feature with the 1.3 MP front camera of the device.

The HTC Evo also has an intense 8MP camera that can be used to record high definition videos. The 4G internet connection can be shared with up to 8 Wi-Fi enabled devices at a rate of $29.99 per month. The phone also comes with a kickstand on the back that can be used to view videos and movies on the phone more comfortably.

HTC Evo 4G lets its users search with the help of photos instead of text with the help of a pre-installed tool the Google Goggles that works with everything from books, barcodes, labels and logos. Sprint is offering all the important peripherals from travel charger plus to hands-free headsets, to the customers of the HTC Evo.

Innovation on smart phones’ internet capacity is sure to ring some bells in the minds of application developers and they are bound to come up with new games and applications to better tap this 4G technology.
