The 4G in this case is Sprint's WiMax, which will be incompatible with anyone else's 4G implementation. Sprint is betting that their contrarian choice and rush to rollout in advance of the other carriers will stop the bleeding of customers they have been experiencing.
You can blame some of the lull in the release of Windows Mobile phones on Microsoft, as who wants to commit resources to a new flagship device that won't be compatible with the next release of the OS? I wouldn't expect to see much movement on that front, as both carriers and device manufacturers are shifting their focus to Android because of WinMo's declining market share.
As of today, HTC does not have anything more advanced than the HD2 in Windows Mobile OS. The next big thing coming out of "HTC quietly brilliant" minds will be the HTC Evo 4G.
But it won't be offered by at&t. It will be released by Sprint this summer!!!
at&t is too busy thinking how to face lift, re-dress and re-brain (firmware updates) its now old and limited iphone to keep the sales from falling, that they won't see the world of cell phones is evolving into more robust and powerful devices with far superior hardware and software.
For this new phone, HTC took the HD2 platform and looked how it can be improved. Pretty hard task taking into consideration the already excellent performance and features it have. But HTC done it again!
The HTC Evo 4G will have 4G data capability of course! A new 8 mega pixels camera! Android OS and what makes me ask "How they do that?" HDMI 720P High Definition Video Output!!! Along with the usual SnapDragon 1Ghz processor, 1GB/512MB ROM/RAM 4.3" 480x800 screen, etc.
I'm not a fan of Android OS but the 4G data speed, the 1GHz Snapdragon, the 4.3" 480x800 pixels screen and now the most incredible thing in such an small device... HDMI 720P Hi Def Video Output capability is really tempting me hard to make the switch this summer to Sprint.
Just imagine how it will look connected to a video presentations projector in your office conference room or classroom. Even in your home theater!!
