Cool Sprint CFO: HTC EVO can take on iPhone 4 **Good Read**

http://news.cnet.com/8301-30686_3-20007314-266.html

I found this to be a really interesting read. Sprint's CFO sounds off about the EVO vs. iPhone 4. Also, the article quotes Sprint's CEO, Dan Hesse, as stating that the company has no plans to introduce a tiered data plan, such as the one AT&T is getting ready to screw their customers over with. I'm so glad the article stated that. I was wondering what Sprint was thinking in regards to that. Now, I love my EVO just a little bit more.

well instead of putting a cap on their data plans in favor of saving 5 bucks, Sprint went with charging an extra 10. That's why we don't have to worry about them going the tiered route... Sprint doesn't have a bunch of iPhone users clogging their network

Re: Sprint CFO: HTC EVO can take on iPhone 4 **Good Read**

Good article, but it wouldn't matter to me what anybody else thinks anyway. I'm fully aware of all the iPhone's shortcomings and wouldn't trade my Evo for an iPhone under any circumstances. IMO the Evo kicks the iPhone's ass around the block and back. I don't like anything Apple makes. My MP3 player of choice is a Microsoft Zune 120 GB, and it has so many more features than an iPod.

I'm sure some people will flock to the iPhone when it gets released, but that's their perogative. Enjoy mediocrity along with the rest of the sheep, and have fun drinking the water.

getting ready? they went into effect on monday

also the Evo destroys the iPhone 4, the only specs the iPhone has on the evo is screen resolution (who cares, the evo looks pretty damn good) and the iphone 4 is like 3 mm thinner, who gives a rat's?

also, where does apple get off introducing "video calling" as something brand new never been done before and you have to be on a wifi connection to do it. i liked engadget's comment on their liveblog during steve's keynote, "hey rest of the world, how do you feel about steve finally catching up?"

Oh, wow! I didn't know those asinine AT&T plans already took effect. Too funny! And I agree with all of your points about the Evo. I have an iPod touch and I love it, but for the first time ever, I started not to like it so much when I compared it to the greatness that is ... EVO!

What he said was, we wouldn't be charged extra for 4G and he didn't lie about that. The $10 charge according to Sprint is for the kickstand and large screen!

Let's face it, we are already on a tier plan except it only has 1 tier right now, and they are charging $10 for it. Luckily this tier gives us unlimited data.

Nice typo

The Andrdoid-based EVO is also designed specifically for a super fast 4G network, which means applications and video viewing is much faster than on an iPhone when the EVO is used in a 4G network.

You do realize that AT&T users with the iPhone have the tiered plan, AND must pay $30 a month as opposed to the $10 sprint fee. So we are waaay better off. And that's not even mentioning sprint's super cheap plan on top of it all. For the first time in my life, I can happily say : Sprint Wins, AT&T Fails
