Slowly but surely more and more info about carrier IQ is rolling out. Gizmodo did a great job with this post that outlined all the phones that are known for sure to have carrier IQ installed on them. This information was found in the letters from the companies to Senator Al Franken.
Entries in Sprint (7)
Early Wednesday morning HTC and Sprint announced the fifth member of the EVO family. The HTC EVO Design 4G puts the EVO name on some new hardware that doesn't seem to have much overlap with other EVO devices. The EVO Design features a 4 inch qHD display, 1.2 GHz processor, and an aluminium unibody design. The EVO Design seems to lack some of the styling queues from the rest of its family, for example the four Android buttons on the bottom of the screen are not circled like on other EVO phones. The other EVO phones also did not feature an aluminium unibody.
The EVO Design will be available through Sprint on October 23, for a price of just $99. Hopefully we will be able to get our hands on a review device and let you know how this phone stacks up.
As you may or may not know but this is a one man blog operation. The lofty goal of this blog was simple, get some sweet products to review because I love gadgets and I would do what it takes to get those gadgets. I knew that it wouldn't be easy to talk a big company to send me a very valuable product to review, and honestly I’m a bit surprised I had the chance to review any products at all. The question is how does small blog get products to review? I don't really have much of an answer, but I will tell you what I've tried, and maybe if anyone reads this they can offer any help they can too.
Before I go too far in depth I want to say that my blog experiment has been a success. Mostly due to the fact that I was able to review some products, which was goal, but I have hit a dry spell as of late. I did not start this blog with a goal to make money from it, nor did I expect some professional blog to notice me (I wouldn’t mind that, but wasn’t part of the plan). I still get excited to see when the site receives page views, even if 90 percent of them are from me checking to see if anyone has viewed the site.
The Wall Street Journal reported today some juicy rumors about the upcoming iPhone. Not only are the reports stating that the iPhone will be coming to Sprint's network along with AT&T and Verizon, but they also said that the iPhone 5 would be coming out in mid-October. It is getting hard to keep track of all the iPhone 5 rumors, there was even a conflicting rumor from Reuters saying the iPhone 5 would come out in late September.
Sprint's EVO Shift 4g is the little brother to the first 4g phone in the United States the EVO 4g. It really is smaller in most ways, you get a smaller screen, and slightly less beefed up specs. In return you get a slide out qwerty keyboard. This is the second HTC phone I've had the pleasure of reviewing with a slide out keyboard. The set up on the Evo Shift isn't as complex as the Arrive's sliding screen with the hinge. With the original EVO phone still being praised as one of the best Android phones, how does the EVO Shift match up?

I've been a lucky little boy, on Friday I got a Nexus S to play with, and on Monday I got an HTC Arrive! So here is a quick video of me taking the HTC Arrive out of it's Sprint box. I'll try to have more on it, as well as the Nexus S soon, but with two phones, I might not be able to focus!!
Well, it is a phone, but it's not like any phone we've seen before, and there might be a reason why we haven't. The Kyocera Echo is Sprint's newest Android phone, and the attention grabbing feature is the fact that it has two 3.5inch touch screens.
This is an interesting form factor, and without being able to use it until Spring 2011 it will be hard to tell just how great or horrible it is. From my first impression I feel like this device is missing some features that would make this phone truely news worthy.
