Submission + - Sprint announces 4G Superphone (

mliu writes: Sprint announced today the first 4G phone for American markets, dubbed the Evo, and its spec list is impressive. Android 2.1, 1GHz processor, WVGA screen, capacitive touch, 720p recording, HDMI out, the works. Combine that with Android's spectacular growth this past quarter, almost tripling its marketshare, and maybe this could be a turning point for the Linux-based operating system by Google. Of course, Sprint has been in rough shape lately, and has been hemorrhaging subscribers, but releasing what is arguably the most impressive smartphone on the market is certainly a step in the right direction.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
