HTC-EVO-2

Sprint users: have you ever wanted to call somebody or video chat, while surfing the web, all at the same time? With the HTC EVO 4G coming June 4th for $199 (which we wrote about here), you can do just that. Before now, you needed an iPhone or another carrier (most GSM 3G implementations allow for this). Soon, you can do it right on your EVO 4G with Sprint.

Mark Your Calendars: Sprint Officially Announces HTC EVO 4G For $199, Coming June 4th! Mobile Hotspot To Cost $29.99

Tonight in New York City, Sprint unveils a whopper, and it has nothing (or very little, anyway) to do with Disney's new film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

It has everything, however, to do with the newest Android bit of gold: the release date of the HTC EVO 4G, the first 4G phone on Sprint's 4G wireless network.

Until now, all we've seen is a teaser on the phone's home page indicating that it will be available summer 2010 and some unconfirmed rumors about June 6th release date and $199.

It looks like the patent war between Apple and HTC is beginning to heat up. Apple fired the opening shot two months ago when they filed suit against HTC, claiming they infringed on a number of their patents, and until today, things kept fairly quiet. However, as expected, HTC won’t give up with out a fight, and has retaliated by filing their own patent suit with the ITC asking that all imports and sales of iPhones, iPads and iPods be halted.

EXCLUSIVE: AndroidPolice.com's Nexus One Is Running Android 2.2 Froyo. How Fast Is It Compared To 2.1? Oh, Only About 450% Faster
Last Updated: June 5th, 2012

Upcoming Frozen Goodness

Folks, we have a Nexus One. We also have Froyo. In fact, we have the two mixed together in the most delicious frozen-yogurty Android 2.2 kind of way you can imagine.

Not much has been officially released by Google about Android 2.2 - probably less than any other release to date. We all have a hunch about some new features but Google wouldn't officially confirm or deny any of them, other than the one about Flash 10.1.

HTC Droid Eris Should Be Getting The Android 2.1 OTA Update Today

It's finally here - today should be the day when Verizon starts rolling out the Android 2.1 OTA (over-the-air) update that we reported on a few days ago.

The update page on Verizon's site, which provides benefits of the new 2.1 OS as well as the update instructions, still mentions "Coming Soon!" as the release date.

That last part, however, apparently means today, May 11th, according to a MobileCrunch tipster who sent in this internal memo screen:

HTC Droid Eris Should Be Getting The Android 2.1 OTA Update Today

We know it says "tentatively scheduled" and Verizon doesn't exactly have the best track record with releasing 2.1 when it says it is, but we have a hunch that it will actually begin on time this time around.

nexus one

It seems as though carriers that were lined up for the Nexus One are dropping like flies. First comes the news that Verizon has chosen to go forward with the HTC Incredible as opposed to Google's own branded device, and now Sprint has dropped the Nexus One too.

Michelle Leff Mermelstein, Sprint's Consumer Products spokeswoman, told Gizmodo that the reason behind the decision was the "upcoming availability of the award-winning Evo 4G," as the two devices were not so different (I had to link that!).

HTC Hero Android 2.1

Maybe

Many of you are complaining about Android 2.1, even though Sprint is well within the promised June timeline.

I understand - it's frustrating to see phone by phone get upgraded with your Hero sitting on the sidelines, ever since its release last October.

I know how you feel but the truth is, we don't know whose fault it is.

Maybe it's Sprint's evil plan for everyone to buy more EVO 4Gs.

I guess Sprint was feeling a bit lonely: Verizon has recently revealed on their official support site for the Droid Eris that users can expect an update to 2.1 ‘soon’. Unfortunately, they don’t offer a more specific time table, but they do provide documents both detailing the benefits of upgrading as well as instructions on how to do so, which is definitely reassuring.

Reading through the documents provided, it looks like Verizon is going to deliver the update over-the-air, as well as require the user to wipe the device.

samsung moment htc hero

As we reported yesterday, Sprint has once again pushed back the scheduled Android 2.1 update for the HTC Hero to an unknown future date, destroying expectations of the May 7th release.

Another official confirmation of this was given today in a Sprint statement by another Sprint admin, which notified customers that the delay also affects the Samsung Moment. The official statement on the Sprint forums said

Hello Community Members,

We wanted to let you know that Sprint continues to work closely with Samsung and HTC to deliver the highly anticipated Android 2.1 upgrade for Samsung Moment and HTC Hero.
