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)?

Evo 4G Available For Pre-Order At The Shack Later This Month?

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.

Oprah Gets Her Hands On An Extremely Sexy Looking HTC EVO 4G, We Nearly Die Of Envy

Probably the most awaited phone of 2010 - the super sexy HTC EVO 4G (formerly HTC Supersonic) made an appearance today on a none other than an Oprah Winfrey show.

Sprint let her play with the device and we got to catch a quick glimpse of it, thanks to fanboydestroyer from Hawtwired.com (this is the proper credit which was apparently mishandled by some other site owners) who recorded this video from his TV:

The curves, the looks - June can't come fast enough.

Latest Android Fragmentation Numbers Are In - Android 1.5 Still Leading The Pack

Google has updated the two-week survey of Android devices connecting to the Android Market again, ending yesterday, May 3, 2010.

According to their graph, 99% of users are using platform versions 1.5, 1.6 or 2.1 with the final percentage being split among some very minor releases. More than one third of Android devices are still using a build of the Android OS which is several versions old - 1.5.

With the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment 2.1 updates rumored (for the 7th time) to go out this week, this will hopefully be the last time we see 1.5 ahead of the pack.

Editorial: Google’s Open Handset Alliance A Myth… Are We Really Surprised?

Some interesting leaked news are hitting the airwaves today: according to a former high-level Open Handset Alliance executive from Google, the said Alliance was "nothing more than a myth".

The one-time company head called the group “oligarchical” and revolving solely around Android:

"The power is concentrated with the Google employees who manage the open source project"

The Open Handset Alliance

The Open Handset Alliance, founded and led by by Google in 2007, contained 34 large and small companies related to the mobile business, and this number only grew over the years, currently standing at 65.

Another HTC Phone Hits The FCC – Slider With Keyboard and Optical Trackpad

Well it is about time for another Android phone leak, it has been almost a week or so since the last one.

This time we have a new HTC phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the standard navigation buttons and also an optical trackpad. Everything looks pretty standard about this phone aesthetically speaking. As for the hardware hidden inside, not a lot is known about it yet.

Model name PC70110, HTC’s new phone has a 4 row QWERTY keyboard which, if you are coming from something like the G1 which has a sexy 5 row keyboard, is a bit of a bummer.

Verizon Shipping Bug – A Few HTC Incredibles Shipped Early

The date 4/20 is usually associated with things of mellow nature, and apparently some of Verizon’s employees or the shipping system itself seems to have been affected by it - a few lucky people who pre-ordered their HTC Incredibles got notices saying it would be delivered 4/20, and sure enough there are reports of these units being received.

What Is Going On?

It is a bit confusing as to what is actually happening right now in regards to the HTC Incredible.

HTC Gives T-Mobile myTouch Slide's Sense UI An Espresso Boost

The T-Mobile MyTouch Slide just can’t get enough of the camera. We’ve already seen it in three color configurations, and now the good gents at TmoNews have let loose some screenshots of the [sexy?] new HTC Sense revamp, dubbed Espresso.

I’m not sure I’m exactly thrilled with the new ‘bubbly’ icons that they’re using – in my opinion it gives them a cheap, and quite literally, plastic look. They seem to be pushing wood grain and warmer, natural colors in this version over the more industrial/streamlined/modern look of the current HTC Sense UI.
