Sprint 4G Markets Increasing – But Where are the Phones?

Sprint launched 4G service in seven new markets today, bringing the current total to 43. The company predicts that large markets such as Los Angeles and New York will see the same service before the end of this year. However, there aren’t any phones to be had anywhere. The only available 4G phone (as of the writing of this post) is the HTC EVO 4G. Sadly, HTC cannot begin to keep up with demand due to parts shortages.

The EVO accesses the web over 4G and can also share the WiMAX connection with other devices… for a fee. With capabilities such as this, the phone is the flagship for Sprint’s next-generation network. If the phone isn’t available, though, how much of a crimp does that put into Sprint’s timetable and plans? HTC says that they have contracted with additional suppliers to ratchet up EVO production. Let’s hope this is the case, and that we’ll see EVOs back on the shelves in the near future.

Christmas Gift Product Review Roundup

Before you buy anything, online or offline, I hope you’re doing your research on products and services. Peer reviews are (in many ways) more important than “awards” given by traditional media outlets (which I can pretty much guarantee are bought and paid for). This knowledge gathering process is especially important during the holiday shopping season.

I’m guessing you don’t have a lot of time to read what people think about things. How about watching a few very short videos, instead? It’s time for some short attention span theatre…
