Quick Video Review: HTC Evo Design 4G On Sprint

Sprint has recently (possibly unbeknownst to them) added a new category of Android phones. This category sits firmly in between mid-range phone and the superphones that we all love to dote about. This is a great category for consumers.  Over the weekend we unboxed and reviewed the other phone in this category the LG Marquee, today we are checking out the HTC Evo Design 4G.

The first thing we notice about the Design 4G is the 4G part. This means that  it will operate on Sprint’s current 4G WiMax network. The other thing that makes this phone special is it’s the first HTC Evo world phone meaning you can use it internationally (with an international plan of course).

Aside from those two things what we have is a very solid Android device. It’s sleek looking design and light weight. The 1.2ghz single core processor is just a little bump up from the HTC Evo 4G, Sprint’s flagship Evo device released in June of 2010 and still one of the most popular Android devices, not only on Sprint but out of the whole Android ecosystem.

Is The HTC Android World Phone on Verizon the Lexicon?

We broke this story with photos on August 6, 2010 of the HTC Android Verizon World Phone meaning that it supports CDMA and GSM Technology.  When the back of this phone was opened for our source it had a Vodaphone GSM chip in it which indicates that it is a world phone. The reported LTE GSM chips have been branded “Verizon” and not “Vodaphone”

Now specs are surfacing for the HTC Lexicon which could very well be this phone although none of the reported specs for the Lexicon are showing radio information.

Display Size: 3.8″
Resolution: WVGA 400×800
RAM 512M
Chip Set MSM7630
OS: Android 2.2
Speed: 800MHZ
Keypad: QWERTY

What do you think did we leak pics of the HTC Lexicon?
