I'm sure the name will be exclusive and it will be called something else on other carriers. Anyone have any more info? I'm sure HTC will be on board with a LTE Evo since they were first with the Wimax. I was rather surprised that Sprint announced LTE devices and there was nothing from HTC.

 

There has been no recent rumors about the Evo 2, maybe they are just holding off until Sprint is closer to flipping the LTE switch to finalize the components so it can have eye popping features like the first Evo. I would have to think it will have at least a 10 MP camera, possibly quad core processor, the screen probably wouldn't get much bigger but it would most likely be at least on par with the E4GT on resolution. They almost have to include the signature kickstand... Anyone heard anything or like to speculate?

I'm sure we'll start to hear something about the EVO line by spring. Usually rumors about Sprints flagship phones start to surface during that time with CTIA being the confirmation and with other phones releases being divulged then as well. With LTE coming out, Sprint may do things differently this year. CES is a good example of this strategy, Sprint has usually had a very small footprint there and I can't recall there every being a product announcement before.

And then I got my first Samsung. And I didn't like the TouchWiz UI. In fact, I hated it. So I still thought I would want my next phone to be a HTC product.

 

But now, since I have gone custom ROM, gave TouchWiz the heave-ho with ICS theme and a ICS launcher, I love my Samsung. I actually like my Samsung on a Custom ROM, more than I ever did with a HTC product on a custom ROM or stock Sense ROM.

 

So, now I am salivating over the thought of a Samsung Galaxy S3 series. Evo who?

:P

If only we didn't have to wait 6 months after world release to get the Samsung here like the Galaxy S2. Maybe with the S3, they will give it to us right away since the S2 is such a huge success.

    • I was thinking that Dish could be in a pickle with limited low-band.  But forgot they will have n26. Dish needs to also push carriers to support that band as well. I know that is like 14x14.  With 5G, is that something that Dish will be fully able to utilize?
    • Update: Throughout my time in Ireland, I've been on 4G (LTE) via Global Roaming with no issues. Nothing from Sprint/TMo re upgrading service. Hopefully, no bad surprises on my next bill . . .   Installed new TMo SIM in my daughter's phone while here, and she's had no data whatsoever. I had received mixed responses from TMo folks prior to the trip as to whether that was possible.
    • Went up to Woodbury again and it looks like the Archdiocese and NW Spectrum LLC are hampering T-Mobile's ability to expand beyond 40MHz still. Unlike in NYC, Band 41 is still alive and well on Sprint in Orange County. I was seeing 20MHz of Band 41 on both Sprint and T-Mobile. n41 is still at 40MHz unfortunately with no sign of a second n41 carrier anywhere. 
    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
