HTC Evo 4G from Sprint Makes Users Lust for Any Web App

The Evo comes in an egg-carton-style box. The device measures 4.8 inches long, 2.6 inches wide and a half-inch thick. For those of you who have played with the heavy Motorola Droid, this device also weighs a hefty 6 ounces.
Evo from the Back
Check out the back of this device, which boasts an 8-megapixel dual LED flash camera. The front has a 1.3-inch megapixel camera.
Evo in Profile
The Evo is not as slender as the Nexus One or Incredible, but it's still just half an inch thick.
Working with Homescreen
How can you not appreciate that WVGA (800-by-480) capacitive touch screen with 65,000 colors?
The HTC Sense offers users a "leap view" of seven customizable homescreens.
There are more than 61 apps preloaded on the device, including Google's YouTube, Search, Maps, Talk and Gmail. Those who don't find what they require can check out the 50,000 apps in the Android Market.
When you call up Google Maps on the Evo, it will tap into your location if you give Google the OK.
Sprint offers its own little apps section in a homescreen. Users can access Sprint TV and other apps from the company.
Peep on Twitter
The Peep Twitter app on the Evo. Apps are powered by the familiar Qualcomm Snapdragon processor from the Nexus One and Incredible.
Want to integrate Twitter, Facebook and Flickr updates? Use this great FriendStream app from HTC.
Sprint TV on the Evo
ESPN Mobile on Sprint TV is a nice feature.
The kickstand pops out the back to let users watch TV hands free.
Watching the French Open
We got quite comfortable watching Rafael Nadal and Nicolas Almagro contend at the French Open on the Evo, but there's the rub: Prolonged media play chews up battery life far too fast.
