Today, we are seeing it again in an even more random creation - a homemade video by MysteryGuitarMan. Dual cameras for recording 3D - check, LED flash - check (though only one), what looks to be a kickstand - check (seriously, nobody has thought of putting a kickstand into a tablet before?
Here is the long awaited announcement from Sprint/HTC - the Supersonic name is no more and the phone is now called EVO 4G.
It will be released this summer, so roll your tongues back up, pick up your jaws and prepare for the painful wait. Get ready to be taunted by the HTC HD2 (which is very similar but running WinMo) owners, and coming out any day now.
Here are the specs of this monster. It is, indeed, the most impressive phone to day:
1GHz Snapdragon QSD8650 CPU
a 4.3" TFT screen, 480x800 resolution
TWO cameras - 8MP on the back and 1.3MP on the front
DUAL flashes on the back - I got to see what that looks like on the HD2 and it's really blinding
720P video playback and recording using the rear camera and HDTV connectivity via HDMI through an adaptor
1GB internal storage
8GB MicroSD card included, expandable to 32GB
WiMax/4G with support for 8 concurrent users
Proximity, light, gyro sensors, digital compass, GPS
Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP + EDR
a kickstand - interesting, that's a new and lightweight way of making your phone stay upright - great for watching videos on the huge screen
