My brother just got his today and is now playing with it. I will look at his and see if it is worth for me to buy.

I'm interested in picking this up but I'm not too crazy about paying extra $10 per month for premium data plan as I live in middle of nowhere. I probably will not see any 4G coverage for long time.

But I can look past that additional charge if the other features are worth the monthly plan.

I had stopped at Sprint Store today to see new HTC EVO 4G. bigger display than my iPhone. Front-facing cam s video is very clear. Wow. But battery life is short for streaming video about 3 hours. I will wait to get more info on next-gen iPhone vs HTC EVO 4G comparison next few weeks.

Sprint EVO 4G

Hello folks,

Today I went to local Sprint store and took a look on new Sprint's EVO 4G smartphone. Its task bar showed that Gaithersburg already has 4G coverage (Washington DC metro area)! I tried to access some web sites and noticed that Internet access is much faster than my iPhone. I compared it with my iPhone and its display is much bigger and easier to view. I am very satisfied with that and go ahead to order that upgrade to replace my old BB 8703e at Sprint Relay Store website this month or next.

I have a question for you. I received email from Sprint Relay Store about optional hotspot mobile for extra $29.99 a month. Can I add that tethering option later during 2 yr contract?

I already downloaded and installed Android development kit includes NDK and am learning how to write programs for that smartphone. I has good knowledge of Java programming because I had many training courses at my work and is now Java programmer. Now I am learning how to write C# programs.

Thanks,
Sword7

WiFi hotspots will be not free.
These monthly charges are stupid and artificial.

The hardware itself is capable of providing a WiFi hotspot -- it's crazy for the carrier to charge for this ability.

No need WiFi hotspot capable for iPhone. Any free WiFi hotpots anywhere to use it.
