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.

    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
