After A Year And A Half On Top HTC Evo 4G Reaches End Of Life

According to a leaked end of life document on sprintfeed.com the original HTC Evo 4G has reached it’s end of life this week.

The HTC Evo 4G was introduced by Sprint on June 4, 2010. It was also one of the two take home devices at the Google I/O conference in May of 2010 ahead of the actual Evo launch.  By American standards it was the first Android device on a 4G network as the Sprint Evo 4G has access to Sprint’s WiMax network which was their first foray into 4G.

The Evo 4G was also the first Android device to feature the 1ghz (single core) Qualcomm SnapDragon processor. HTC did a great job of keeping the Evo 4G up to date, and quarter after quarter, even until Q3 2011 the HTC Evo 4G was the top selling Android device.

Also rounding out their life span on the nation’s third largest wireless carrier are the HTC Evo View 4G (HTC Flyer), and the Blackberry Playbook.

All four major carriers and of course the OEM’s are preparing for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February where we will get a chance to see what’s to come in the way of Android and mobile devices for the rest of 2012. We are expecting quad-core Android devices with Ice Cream Sandwich to be the standard for Android “Superphones” for the rest of 2012.
