How fast is Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G phone?

Consumer Reports reviews the speed of the HTC Evo 4G phone in Philadelphia, PA.  Important factors for phone users are speed, access to apps and information, the ability to take pictures, streaming video, and overall ease of use.

Mike Gikas shares how the Evo 4G offers streaming video while running other apps and features on the phone.  During the demonstration, he compares the Evo to another phone in the Sprint fleet called the HTC Hero 3G phone.  His benchmarks for comparison are the phone display size, download speed, text display features, and camera features.

Overall, the Evo has quite a few applicable features and great speed that the mobile audience loves.  However, it still had difficulty displaying streaming content from which is an indicator the integration of mobile, streaming video, and web content technologies is still a work in progress.

Simplified Pricing by Sprint Makes For Easy Plan

January 26th, 2011 Comments off

Sprint is giving customers an easier way to budget for their monthly wireless expenses with the launch on June 15 of new simplified pricing plans.

Building on the popularity of Sprint’s $99 Simply Everything(SM) plan, new share plans for families will include unlimited messaging and data for one low price, so there’s no calculator needed to figure out wireless costs for the whole family’s favorite services.

“These days, many families are facing tight finances, and unexpected extra charges on a wireless bill can make budgeting difficult – but with Sprint plans that include all the services customers want for one low price, they can have peace of mind that they’re getting a lower price than competitors offer,” said Will Souder, vice president of pricing for Sprint.

“We want customers to be able to easily see the value in these options, so we’ve removed the clutter of more complicated plans.  Customers can quickly compare and see which plan is best for them.”

“I expect that with the design of these plans, our customers will enjoy their simplicity when it comes time for them to select their next cell phone plan,”  said Joe Barbat, CEO of Wireless Toyz.
