HTC EVO 4G hands-on

It's big, it's fast and it's enough to lure us into a two-year Sprint agreement, and when was the last time you heard that?  The HTC EVO 4G is a monster of a smartphone, and having gone hands-on with it here at CTIA Wireless we've only just grazed the surface of its potential.  Packing the best of the HTC HD2 - including a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and HTC Sense UI - together with WiMAX 4G and EVDO Rev.A connectivity, the HTC EVO 4G promises to really shake up the smartphone ecosystem when it arrives Summer 2010.  More hands-on first impressions after the cut.

Motorola i1 Hands-On Video, Mike Rowe Tells Us What we Want

Motorola i1 Hands-On Video, Mike Rowe Tells Us What we Want

Motorola just announced the i1, the world's first Push-to-Talk Android-based handset, and sure enough they were on scene at CTIA tonight, showing it off. We managed to wrangle up some video time with the handset, and talk about the device's finer points.

It doesn't have the deep social integration and it's not linked up with the Blur servers, so there won't be any of those updates you've come to expect on devices like the Backflip or CLIQ.
