However, the Sprint Hero's are getting an upgrade in the android software soon (I think by the end of May) that is supposed to really reduce the lag and improve the phone's performance.

Android 2.1 for Hero should be available tomorrow.

hey couple q's:

1)  am worried about low wave EMF, what is the best bluetooth to not look like a douche?
_FAN is pretty much right.  if i were going to get some bluetooth headphones i would go with something like these that i can use when working out too.

http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/s9/ 

2)  my mom and step-dad want a droid or iphone.  which is most old people friendly.  they have been talking about this forever, it is like a visionquest for them.  they are both retired and have a kindle and aren't complete retards, but are still partially Fake Sugar Dick (WARNING, NOT THE REAL SUGAR DICK!).
they should go into the store and play with them both.

_FAN you know that the EVO has a higher rated battery than the Incred right? 
Is the 8GB of Incred internal memory on a microSD card? 

Got those headphones for Christmas.  Work very well. Have never used them to make calls though.

June 4th release date.  $199 price.   $10 upcharge for 4G, $30 upcharge for mobile wifi hotspot.  Everything data plan still @ $69.99. 

Boom you're roasted.

only thing is that in MI the only place that has 4G is Grand Rapids.  but I think Sprint is charging the extra $10 regardless of whether or not you're in a 4G coverage area.

$69 for Everything Data plan + $10 4G upcharge still = far less than VZN or ATT but still it seems kinda lame to charge the $10 to the hayseeds that aren't in 4G areas.

hd video.  :fatty:

http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/23/htc-evo-4g-nexus-one-and-droid-face-off-on-the-charted-field-o/

How much will this cost me, Sprinters?

I think the cost of the device will be subsidized ($200 or so after rebate w/contract etc) but don't expect the $70/mo. plans to apply; if you have one of those dual mode air cards for instance, monthly recurring charges are more to use 4g (where available).  sprint employee btw


clams called me a Fake Sugar Dick (WARNING, NOT THE REAL SUGAR DICK!) on this LOL

I think this is legit.  The Incredible is pretty big 3.7, I bet the EVO will seem enormous at 4.3. 

But that said, it does look like a really great phone.

My touch pro 2 is 3.8 and is pretty thick with the slide out keyboard. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't even notice a thinner 4.3".

EVO is nearly a 1/4" wider, but quite a bit thinner; being thinner does make it seem a lot less bulky.  I used to have a Touch Pro with extended battery, seemed a lot more bulky than my Incredible.

And the Droid OS is great.  Wasn't sure how I'd like it compared to WinMo, but now I'll never go back to that.

I was worried about this too, so I literally walked around and got up and down from chairs and stuff with the Evo in my pocket, and it wasn't bad at all actually. I think the thinness makes up for the area.
