If you are looking at a new smart phone, but the $200 price tag of most of the newest Android phones is a little much for you, HTC has come to the rescue with a new budget priced phone that still packs the specs of a top of the line device.
The HTC Evo Design 4G, out on October 23, packs top of the line specs like a 4″ qHD screen, Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the newest version of the HTC Sense skin, 1.2 GHz processor, and is also the first EVO to feature world phone capabilities. World phone means that the phone sports both GSM and CDMA antennas, so you can use the phone here in the states on the Sprint network, as well as overseas on a GSM network — just swap in a SIM card from the country where you are traveling.
The EVO Design packs all of these awesome features into a slim, streamlined design and at an awesome price to boot: the phone checks in at a modest $100 with a new two-year contract from Sprint.
If you like to take pictures with your phone, the Design 4G also packs a very nice camera on board, with 720p video capture and DNLA, which allows you to hook up your phone directly to an HDTV to play back the movies you recorded in their full native resolution.
The EVO Design 4G is sleek and stylish, with a great design and the specs you would expect from an EVO phone, at a price that’s lower than many of the other smart phones on the market. If you are looking for a new smart phone on Sprint but are on a budget, the Design 4G should be high up on your list, considering it’s a new phone that’s the same price as the year-old iPhone 4, also now on Sprint.
The HTC EVO Design 4G goes on sale on October 23rd for just $99.99 with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade and after a $50 mail-in-rebate via reward card, exclusively from Sprint.
