But why would an advocate's phone get locked down onto a display? Makes no sense.

Yeah it doesn't make sense. Advocates have already been appointed so thats what made me think it must have been one of their phones. I typed the message and paused for a minute to see something on tv and then clicked submit so my post. So I missed the security display part.

Re: Pic of Evo in a Sprint store!!

I just hope this means that Sprint plans on making this role out huge and not drop the ball.

A good promotional tool for me that i use anytime i go into an official Sprint store is seeing what phone the works in the store have. Having a rep tell me a phone is one of the best phones or the best phone but they choose not to have one them self tends or most in the store dont have there flagship phone never looks good (unless they're just a BB user).

I think Sprint should either give or make every rep in the corp stores use the phone for 2 months. It always looks good when the whole staff has the phone and is always on it. Just like when you go to a Apple store and every worker has either a Iphone or Ipod touch on their hip.

Well if it makes you feel any better, I thought the same as you (Advocate's phone) until I saw the pic and read "security".

Soft Launch followed by Hard Launch would be fine with me.

A soft launch in nyc right after the party would make even more sense

Re: Pic of Evo in a Sprint store!!

I'm wondering what the "FREE" on the sign underneath it is all about? I seriously doubt Sprint will be giving this device away undera 2yr contract, must be a free accessory or something.

Re: Pic of Evo in a Sprint store!!

I am working on-site at Clearwire and the 4G network guys are working with the Evo right now and have several fully working, release models on-hand to evaluate the network integration with 4G. Not sure how the Clearwire and Sprint Wimax network ownership works, but it seems Clearwire is validating all of the functionality of the device on their network right now. They are expecting go-live in the next two weeks for the device from their current project plans.

Again, not sure what the deal is with Clearwire working on it for the Clear 4G network, but since it is the same network, maybe Clearwire operates the 4G part, or maintains it or something?

Clearwire was the original company to roll out 4G here in the U.S. in large amounts, they were given the wireless spectrum by Sprint in an exchange for common stock. Eventually once they got large enough Sprint purchased Clearwire and now own 51%. They're still separate companies but sprint gets to resell and piggyback on their little company and call it Sprint 4G while Clearwire does the deployment, maintenance, and sells their own brand of access.
