We found 863 results for 'HTC Evo'
HTC may be pushing the limits on the size of smartphones with the EVO4G, but don’t expect that trend to translate tablets any time soon. While the iPad is undoubtedly the dominant tablet on the market right now, a number of Android-powered tablets are under development, and some are bound to hit the market sooner or later. Unfortunately, HTC is not one of the companies working on such a device, instead preferring to play wait-and-see with the competition:
"We are always looking at it, but, right now, the whole idea is that in order to be successful with a tablet, you need to have something compelling.
A few days ago, we found a couple of blurrycam pictures of the HTC Vision. Yesterday, a blurrycam shot of T-Mobile’s roadmap leaked, and it shows an HTC Vanguard releasing on September 9. Now, Engadget has word that the HTC Vision is launching in September – the same time the HTC Vanguard is shown launching on T-Mob’s roadmap. The Vision will be T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ phone. (As I’ve mentioned before, HSPA+ is pretty awesomely fast, and expanding like the wind.) The specs are rumored to include a 3.7” screen, slide-out 4 row QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.1 with sense, and a 1 Ghz processor. Read More
Update schedules are rarely a final thing, and users can get quite angry when they don’t receive updates according to schedule. However, HTC may have finally given themselves a schedule that they can adhere to: all of their recently released phones will be updated to Android 2.2 “before Christmas.” They had previously announced that ‘several’ models would receive the update in Q3 2010, so it’s unclear if this announcement means that timetable has shifted.

Well, isn’t this interesting – the latest OTA update for the EVO (which patched the vulnerability that previously enabled root) has been cracked. The interesting part? It uses Adobe’s Flash Config page to gain entry to the system config.
The full instructions aren’t all that tricky, and as we’ve said before, as long as you read the instructions first, you shouldn’t have an issue. If you haven’t rooted before, it’s certainly worth considering. Read More
HTC and Sprint are working together to accommodate EVO 4G owners whose phones were bricked after this week’s initial update. Without adding very much detail, HTC stated that Sprint Corporate stores can be of service. You can find the closest store using this tool.
If you have already updated successfully and your phone boots up fine, you don't have to do anything. If you haven't applied the OTA update yet, you can now safely do so, as the bricking issue has been fixed. Read More
The crew behind the original easy root for HTC EVO 4G and HTC Hero - unrEVOked - has released unrEVOked2 (UR2) – a tool that lets you replace your phone's (see below for supported models) stock Android recovery with the ClockworkMod recovery. ClockworkMod allows users to create nandroid backups, use custom ROMs, and otherwise customize the phone.
UR2 does not
unlock the NAND on the phone permanently - it only does it long enough to install a custom recovery.
Earlier today, an employee posted on Sprint’s blog saying that the EVO will be getting Android 2.2 soon. When asked if the update would go out to Hero and Moment users as well, his reply was:
No, it will not. 2.2 will not be available for HTC Hero or Samsung Moment
Shortly after, Sprint sent out an official tweet confirming:
Buzzkill. The majority of the remainder of the posts are people who are pissed off that Sprint is more or less abandoning them. Read More

As if the EVO and Incredible weren’t already great phones, it turns out both are capable of 802.11n.
An FCC filing by HTC was posted a few days ago, revealing that the Droid Incredible packs a chip that supports 802.11n, though currently not supported by the OS itself. Speculation around the interwebs is that it means such support will be added in a future update from HTC. I’m slightly less convinced of this than the rest of the blogger-army, but more on that in a minute. Read More
Ad firm Chitika has run the numbers, and found that the HTC EVO accounts for 1.93% of android handsets, just days after the phone’s release. That may not seem too impressive at first sight, but keep in mind that:
1) The phone sold out nearly everywhere, right away. Personally, I went to 3 stores and called 2 more to try to find one on launch day, without luck. I managed to order one from Sprint, but within 2 days of launch they were reporting being sold out online as well. Read More
