Sprint 4G Case for iPad Available at Best Buy

Apparently, Sprint wants you to know that the iPad works with their 3G/4G Overdrive mobile hotspot. And, why should they stop at the iPhone, right? And, while commercials are all well and good, the next logical step is obviously creating an accessory for your Overdrive mobile hotspot, and Apple's iPad.

HTC EVO 4G Review

HTC EVO 4G Review

Long anticipated, hugely specified and just plain huge: there's a lot to like about the HTC EVO 4G. The first WiMAX phone in the US brings with it the promise of DSL-like mobile data access along with the flexibility of Google's Android OS, complete with HTC's now-legendary hardware quality and flexible Sense UI. On the flip side it's nowhere near cheap and WiMAX coverage is marginal. Is this new superphone faster than a speeding bullet, or is that just how quickly it drains its battery? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
