There has been lots of talk about the 8GB card in HTC's new Google EVO (two different cards were provided to IO attendees). It will be interesting to see how the HTC EVO is received Friday when the device finally hits store shelves. I've been using my EVO for a few weeks now and really like it. I've tried to replicate the SD card issue mentioned by others but so far haven't been able to on my EVO no matter what I try. Maybe it's Windows related not sure but, either way I wouldn't be too concerned ;) .


EVO is the first 4G mobile device and sports the supersonic 1GHZ Snapdragon processor. It's so fast it needs a kickstand and has one build in the back. While EVO is a phone and not a tablet (though nobody can provide a clear definition) it's pretty large. EVO's battery in fact is largest I've seen in an HTC yet. I like the hot spot feature and look forward to having 2.2 up and running on my EVO. My favorite feature is EVO's camera, it can take photos from either side of the phone. If you need a new phone, check out EVO.

iPhone 2.0 Software

As you know iPhone 3g launches tomorrow but, if you'd like to check out the new 2.0 Software and Apple iPhone "App Store" here it is:

Please note, you may delete the contents of your phone (as I did) if you don't back up your contents first.

How to install iPhone 2.0 software on your iPhone
Backup your data

Backup your data

Download iTunes 7.7

Download install iPhone 2.0 software

Connect phone

In iTunes hold down option while selecting "Check for Updates"

At that point it will take your phone about 18 minutes to update.

Then iPhone will setup as a new phone or restore.

Restore from the backup you did in the beginning.

The new software seems to work well with Gmail as well as other Google applications. The camera feature asks if I'd like to use my location even though it's not the 3g version. Google Maps has a cool "wavy" look and feel when acquiring a new location. The new iPhone 2.0 software "fetch" feature works well and is a new twist on iPhone.
