HTC EVO 4G Flyer Scans From The Upcoming 4 Week RadioShack Advertising Campaign

The HTC EVO 4G is coming in June, and we all can't wait for it to arrive here. That's why any time a bit of new information about the phone surfaces on the web, we sheeply run over to take a look, our tongues out.

This time, AndroidCentral's sister site PreCentral, or rather one of its users - bnceo got some nice scans of the 4 week advertising campaign RadioShack, now The Shack, is planning to run with for the month before EVO 4G is released.

Reminder: Sprint Offers A $100 Credit For Customers Porting Their Numbers From Other Carriers

Have you been dreaming of picking up an HTC EVO 4G the day it comes out sometime in June (I have) but are currently using another carrier, and maybe even stuck in a contract with them?

Or may you've wanted to switch to Sprint because of their amazing Anymobile Anytime plans that offer unlimited minutes to any carrier's mobile numbers - not just Sprint (yeah, my last bill was 6 anytime minutes)?

No Multitouch For XPERIA X10 Mini And Mini Pro Either - Is Sony Ericsson Ever Going To Listen To What Its Customers Want?

You know the drama with the XPERIA X10 multitouch support? The one where it was supposedly possible, then not, then possible again, then refuted for good?

X10 Mini/Mini Pro Multitouch

Well, the recently announced little brothers of the X10 - the Mini and the Mini Pro, will not be getting multitouch either, as confirmed by the official Sony Ericsson blog.

Single handed operation seems to be the theme throughout their whole post, insisting that even though the users clearly want multitouch, the devices are better without it (who are the users to dictate what's better, eh?):

I noted some of your comments asking for the multi touch support.

No May 7th Android 2.1 Update For Sprint HTC Hero - And Yet Again We Are Sad Pandas

The HTC Hero Android 2.1 update (which we previewed in full here) drama can now probably get its own reality show - every week we get a leak or a "source" that promises the update "for sure this time" and then the week goes by - and nothing happens.

The recent May 7th rumor was getting so old and repetitive, we didn't even consider it report-worthy, and now a Sprint community employee has indicated it indeed had no merit.

I spent about 15 minutes trying to figure out how I could open this post with a joke about Radio Shack’s abysmal name change to ‘The Shack’, but figured it’s well trodden ground at this point, so let’s just skip to the juicy bits: it appears that the gents over at Phandroid have been tipped off by an employee at the aforementioned Shack that Sprint’s Evo 4G should be available for pre-order by the end of this month.
