HTC EVO Design 4G packs WiMAX and qHD display

HTC has unveiled its latest 4G smartphone, the HTC EVO Design 4G, offering WiMAX and World Phone connectivity with a 4-inch qHD display and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Priced at $99.99 with a new, two-year agreement, the EVO Design 4G runs a 1.2GHz single-core processor and throws in a 5-megapixel rear camera – with HD video capture and an LED flash – along with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

There's also Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi b/g/n and GPS, along with a bundled 8GB microSD card. HTC Sense is obviously preloaded, along with HTC Watch – with support for DLNA wireless video streaming – together with mobile hotspot functionality for sharing 3G/4G connectivity with up to eight WiFi-tethered devices.

That's all built into a unibody aluminum chassis measuring 4.8 x 2.4 x 0.47 inches and tipping the scales at 5.2oz. The battery is a 1,520 mAh pack which is good for up to 6hrs talktime, HTC reckons, and if you have a 4G connection you can access voice and data simultaneously.
