Enterprise Mobility: HTC Evo 4G Offers Android 2.1, Google Goggles, Hot Spot
The HTC Evo 4G smartphone suggests that Sprint is betting its future on two things: that customers will want phones to become a rich-content platform, and that they'll want that rich content at blindingly fast speeds. While the HTC Evo 4G uses its Android 2.1 operating system to offer the standard-issue mobile apps and calling ability (as well as syncing with Google features such as Gmail and Google Calendar), Sprint has been just as keen to tout the phone's video conferencing and movie-playback abilities. If nothing else, the HTC Evo 4G offers some powerful hardware, including a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera in back. Sprint can only hope that such features will attract customers in a marketplace already crowded with high-end Android devices.
