"For several years now, Sprint has been in next-to-last place among U.S. wireless network providers. But that might eventually change if Sprint continues to offer smartphones like the HTC EVO 4G ($200 with a new contract), a well-reviewed Android 2.1 handset boasting several firsts and currently a Sprint exclusive in the U.S.

"The HTC EVO 4G, introduced in March and shipping June 4, is the first 3G/4G network phone in the U.S. Along with working on Sprint's 3G network, the EVO 4G can take advantage of Sprint's faster 4G network as well. Sprint's 4G network is based on WiMAX technology and is currently in 33 U.S. markets.

"The EVO 4G is also the first phone from a U.S. carrier with a front-facing camera for video chat. And it's among the first to offer 720p video recording. Apple's iPhone 4, available June 24, also boasts a front-facing webcam for video chat, and a back-facing camera for still images and 720p video recording.

"Packed with features such as the ability to turn the phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot, the EVO 4G is earning highly favorable reviews."
