Google Gives Away 5,000 HTC EVO 4G Devices to Developers

At the Google I/O Conference in San Francisco this week, Google gave away 5,000 HTC EVO 4G devices to developers. The phone is the first 4G mobile in the U.S. and it operates on Sprint's CDMA and WiMAX networks.

Sprint also released a 4G developer guide that includes sample apps and source code for forward-facing camera, HDMI output and network detection (3G, 4G, Wi-Fi).

"The EVO 4G experience is much like going from TV to HDTV. But EVO has more than just an impressive list of features -- it is also fun to use with remarkable gaming, video and web-browsing capabilities," said Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO.

Commercial release of the HTC EVO 4G is slated for June 4, 2010.
