Sprint is the latest U.S. carrier to jump on the HTC One X bandwagon. The cellular provider will offer its own version of HTC's flagship device rebranded as the HTC Evo 4G LTE. I managed to spend some time with the phone and can say it's simply gorgeous and a worthy successor to the Evo 4G legacy.
When the Sprint and HTC representatives I met dropped the Evo 4G LTE on the table, my first thought was, "Well, that looks familiar." In fact the phone's silver aluminum trim, which rings the handset's edges, is a page right out of the BlackBerry Bold's playbook (forgive the pun). Of course the iPhone 4 was the first to popularize that metal band, so perhaps HTC is really biting from Apple. My second thought was, "Wow, that's one seriously thin phone." The device looks breathtakingly svelte, less than its claimed 0.35-inch thickness.
