White HTC Evo 4G Now Available Nation Wide

Looks like one of Sprint‘s flagship devices is now available in a new color, and not just at Best Buy. The HTC Evo 4G is now available nationwide in a sleek white color. You can go to Sprint stores, online or anywhere else Sprint devices are sold. Phone goes for $199 after a $100 mail in rebate with a new 2 year contract.
No other difference from its “black” version here folks. Phone has a 4.3″ screen, Android 2.2 pre installed, 8 megapixel camera, 8GB Micro SD card installed and up to 32GB campatable, HDMI out and HTC Sense. Great phone already, now just another color option.
I have messed with this device and can honestly say its one of the best Android devices out there. Maybe not one of the best when it comes to battery life, but everything else makes that feature a non issue. Nice job HTC, keep up the good work.

Froyo 2.2 Update for All Galaxy S Devices Coming in November
Last Updated on Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:08 Written by PieceOfSith Friday, 22 October 2010 07:00
What do many Motorola and HTC Android devices have in common. Well, many have already received the much loved “Froyo 2.2″ update already. So what does that mean for the newer, and pretty great in its own right, Samsung Galaxy S devices. Well, Samsung confirmed that all of their Galaxy S devices, from every carrier, will receive the update in November, no specific date though.
This was announced today by Simon Stanford, Managing Director of Mobile Devices for Samsung UK and Ireland. Stanford stated, “Samsung is committed to providing our customers with the best possible mobile experience, and this upgrade enhances the incredible features of the Galaxy S handset. We also want the upgrade process to be simple and hassle-free for customers, hence the new version of our Kies software and the step-by-step video guides.”
Good to know that Samsung hasn’t forgotten the importance of 2.2. They already have arguably the prettiest screens out there, thanks to their Super AMOLED screens, and soon they’ll be able to utilize them showing Flash 10.1. Any release dates will be posted when we hear of them.

As long as we all waited for 2.2 on our Droid X‘s I dont think this will deter anyone. But Motorola has posted a known issue list for Droid X after the update to 2.2. Check below for all the known issues, and let us know if you are getting any of these.
If you have already upgraded to 2.2 for Droid X, you have found some new capabilities. Unfortunately, some owners also found new issues. Here are some of the known issues raised by forums members, with some information about each. It is not intended to be a complete list at this time — there are many more fixes and improvements in the works. I’ll update this list as information becomes available.
- Stuck on Moto logo after reboot – this was tough on a few owners. Very sorry about that. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release. If you are still experiencing this issue, click here.
- Random rebooting – while there always seem to be new conditions that can cause an electronic device to panic, we do have improvements coming that address and eliminate identified panic states. They will be distributed in a future software release.
- WiFi connection and stability– improvements in WiFi have been developed, to address several problem areas. They will be distributed in a future software release.
- Battery Manager “force close” errors – under some circumstances, pressing the battery icon under Menu > Settings > Battery Manager results in a forced close error. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release.
- Media won’t play – includes “sorry the player does not support this type of audio file,” custom ringtone stop working, video won’t play, etc., until after a reboot. We believe we have identified the cause of these errors. A fix has been developed for this and should eliminate the problem. It will be distributed in a future software release.
- Music files cutting off the final four seconds or so – a solution has been developed. It will be distributed in a future software release
