HTC EVO 4G gets teardown; WiFi b/g/n hardware confirmed

Our HTC EVO 4G review stripped the WiMAX-toting smartphone down to its shockingly red rear panel, but as we've seen before iFixit have no compunction about whipping out the screwdrivers and taking things down to bare circuit boards. They've acquired an EVO 4G ahead of its June 4th retail debut and wasted no time in opening it up.

Inside there aren't too many surprises, but it's interesting to note that the Broadcom BCM4329 chipset used actually supports WiFi b/g/n while Sprint are only talking about b/g at present.  Otherwise there's the expected flash storage, front-facing webcam and all-important WiMAX chipset.
