Well, the Supersonic 4G WiMax phone from Sprint is finally here! It’s actually called the HTC Evo 4G.

The new HTC Evo 4G has a Snapdragon QSD8650 1Ghz processor(CDMA version of QS8250 on Nexus One), 1GB of built-in memory, 512MB of RAM, a whopping 8 mega-pixel camera/camcorder with flash and an additional front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera.

HTC Evo 4G also features an HDMI output so you can connect it to your HDTV/LCD, 802.11b/g wifi, and 8GB microSD.

Sprint is also planning a MiFi-style hotspot for the HTC Evo 4G, which allows you to share up to 8 devices on the WiMax connection. Perhaps this will actually work well/fast enough that I can have one 4G phone providing internet access to my home and that’s not overstated.

To me, it’s actually a bit disappointing that only a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor is used but I guess that’s because there’s nothing faster as of now. Other than that, I am glad it runs Android 2.1 as I have been hacking it thoroughly with my Nexus One and it’s the best mobile operating system out there I have tried.

You will have to wait till this summer though, that’s when the phone will be available and hopefully WiMax will be available in San Francisco where I live so I can get one.
