A number of Sprint (NYSE:S) customers were elated following the announcement by the carrier that it will be offering the HTC EVO 4G LTE in its lineup. The customers were anticipating the upcoming activation of the LTE network of Sprint in the later part of the year which will be beneficial for users of the EVO 4G LTE.
However this anticipation was affected by the delay in the release of the EVO 4G LTE by US Customs due to an investigation that was being conducted by the ITC in connection to the patent dispute between HTC (TPE:2498) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). EVO 4G LTE was later cleared by the authorities and is already being delivered to users who pre-ordered the device. Some of the users who already received the EVO 4G LTE have given indications that the features of the device are impressive.
In addition to the clearance given to the HTC device by US Customs it appears that a root access for the EVO 4G LTE was recently made available by some developers. It will be necessary for users to install drivers in order to gain root access to the HTC device. Once the drivers are installed, a small script is run than the users will gain root access to their HTC devices.
However it should be noted that once users gain root access to their EVO 4G LTE units they will automatically void the warranty of their devices. The EVO 4G LTE features a display measuring 4.7 inches with a 1280 by 720 resolution, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, and an internal storage of 16GB. The device will come with an 8MP camera at the back that is capable of recording 1080p videos.
In addition to these features, the HTC EVO 4G LTE will also use the Android 4.0 OS or the latest version of the Android OS from Google (NASDAQ:GOOG).
