RadioShack ready to rock and roll with HTC EVO 4G
Are you ready for the next superphone? Just what makes a phone “super” in the first place, you ask? Well, HTC’s EVO 4G fits the bill perfectly – after all, it is the first 4G smartphone in North America, and the good folks over at RadioShack are more than willing to roll out one of these puppies to you, where it will remain a Sprint-exclusive device at the moment. RadioShack customers who are interested will be able to place a pre-order of this exciting new device at any one of more than 4,000 RadioShack stores from May 14th onwards, so if you haven’t done so already, what’s keeping you? After all, it offers far superior hardware compared to the Google Nexus One which was dubbed a superphone by the Big G themselves, so why not check out the hardware specifications right after the jump before taking the plunge?
If you are interested in placing a pre-order, you can do so by picking up a $50 RadioShack gift card that can be applied toward the purchase price of the device, while scheduling an appointment to pick up and activate the device. The HTC EVO 4G is ready to hit participating stores throughout North America from June 4th onwards. With its obvious 4G name penciled in, this means you can now take advantage of incredibly fast downloads on 4G networks where available, not to mention a slew of hardware specifications that will definitely get the geek in you super excited :-
- A 4.3-inch touch screen that’s one of the largest in the industry, ideal for viewing movies and other rich content
- An 8.0-megapixel camera on the back for capturing HD video
- Mobile hotspot functionality that allows up to eight WiFi-enabled devices to connect simultaneously to the Internet
- The increasingly popular Android 2.1 operating system for mobile devices
- A blazing-fast 1-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor for smooth and agile mobile multimedia experiences
Before you pick it up however, you can further enhance your first-hand engagement at select RadioShack stores nationwide that are deemed to be “HTC EVO 4G experience centers,” which specially trained experts will demonstrate features and benefits on a live HTC EVO 4G handset. Guess this goes down well with Google’s assertion that it will stop selling its Nexus One online anymore simply because the average Joe still prefers to touch and “fondle” their smartphone(s) before coming to a justifiable purchase decision. Are you looking forward to the EVO 4G?
