Fuck iPhone. I’m gettin’ an Evo!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — ifindkarma @ 7:16 pm
Evo will be the greatest phone in 2010. It’s great for phone calls and Gmail and texting and watching high-definition videos and surfing the Internet, and has a pair of incredible cameras for photos/video, a blazingly fast processor, a freakin’ sweet way to play videos from the Internet on your television, a kickstand,??20k applications, and a mobile wifi hotspot application that will let me connect up to eight laptops and devices to the Internet through wifi. It’s the phone that I have been waiting for.
My bad romance with iPhone ends with me giving up on iPhone??and asking myself, Will it blend?
So on June 4, I will end my AT&T contract and make the Evo my primary phone.
However, I’m not a fan of the Sprint marketing for Evo: America’s First 4G Phone.
BORING.??Sounds like something that makes Ke$ha say Blah blah blah. Well guess what AT&T? The fools in town are on our side. And we’re writing marketing copy!
My proposal for the new Sprint marketing slogan substitutes subtlety for in-your-face attitude.
It’s short, bold, and to the point. Evo shall set us free from the shackles of AT&T.
Don’t be jealous. Ok, be just a little bit jealous.
Evo. Anything less is Blah Blah Blah.

Evo. End your Bad Romance with iPhone.
iPhone, I don’t wanna be friends! You are an AppHole. Buh-bye!


  1. I’m not the only one who thinks this way. Soon iPad sales will pass iPhone sales as people commit to iPad instead of iPhone and say goodbye to AT&T:http://mobile.venturebeat.com/2010/05/20/analyst-apple-ipads-outselling-macs-nearing-iphone-3gs-sales/Meanwhile, the Android operating system that Evo runs continues to kick serious ass:http://mobile.venturebeat.com/2010/05/20/android-froyo-google-apple/Thank you Google!http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2010/05/20/oprah-moment-take-2-google-gives-evo-4gs-to-everyone-at-io/

  3. I thought Evo doesn’t run Froyo, only 2.1.But I’m pretty excited about the Evo nevertheless.

  5. <p>I hear the battery life is pretty bad, though.?? I'm still waffling between evo, incredible, and iPhone 4G. Leaning towards incredible, but waiting until the iphone release. </p> <p>- Nikita </p>

  6. Battery life is bad. You will need an extra battery, external battery, or carry around a charger with the Evo or Incredible. Advanced Task Killer is our friend too. :)It wouldn’t surprise me if iPhone 4G is the same way.Meanwhile, we can enjoy rooting our Evo:http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2010/06/03/evo-4g-root-released/Here are the five best Evo features:http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2010/06/02/evo-4g-best-features-review/And the best part? Sprint will still give you unlimited data even though AT&T won’t:http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2010/06/02/att-announces-new-data-plans-unlimited-data-nowhere-to-be-seen/

  7. Thanks Anton for the following:http://www.thestreet.com/story/10773978/2/entering-the-era-of-3-smartphones-a-person.htmlPurely anecdotally speaking, at no point since thethree iPhone launches in 2007, 2008 and 2009, have I spoken with somany people who are going to be in line for Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G whenit goes on sale tomorrow morning, June 4. Unlike the first-day buyersfor a new iPhone, who already tend to be owners of a previous iPhone,the stated intended buyers of Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G come from all walksof life. There are three primary reasons the demand for the Sprint HTCEVO 4G appears uniquely strong:1. Unlimited 4G WiFi tethering for $30 per month. No other phone onthe market has 4G tethering at all, and the price of $30 per month forunlimited service looks even lower today than it did beforeyesterday’s AT&T announcement of metered pricing. People want toconnect their iPod Touches, iPads and laptops with one wireless datasubscription, and they strongly prefer unlimited service — no 2 gigor 5 gig per month cap, above which overages must be paid. The SprintHTC EVO 4G simultaneously connects eight such devices, and there is noworry about overage charges.2. The only 4.3-inch Android smartphone on the market. With Blackberrya must-have, the iPhone being unavoidable as a result of the AppStoreand the iTunes ecosystem, Android has firmly established itself as the"third OS" and many people feel they need to get first-hand experienceon what this means. If you are going to make the jump, why not do itfor a device with the largest screen size by far?3. Price. The Sprint HTC EVO 4G has its service plan priced belowalmost all other smartphones. The $110 per month (plus tax) gives theuser unlimited calling to other cell phones, unlimited SMS, unlimiteddata on the device and unlimited WiFi tethering to up to eight otherdevices such as iPod Touch, iPad and laptops. The only other 4G(WiMax) WiFi tetherable device on the market — the Sierra WirelessOverdrive — costs $60 per month, so this means that the $50 per monthresidual ($110 minus the imputed $60) buys you the biggest Androidexperience.
