Sprint HTC EVO 4G: The First 4G Smartphone Is a 4G WiFi Router, too!

Sprint releases the worlds first 4G smartphone, you can uses it to share your 4G connection with up to 8 WiFi users.

When Sprint CEO Dan Hesse introduced the Sprint HTC EVO 4G at CTIA 2010 (wearing grey Vans slipons to match his suit, no less), he made it clear that Sprint's 4G network covered 30 million people in 2009, and will cover 120 million by the end of 2010.

Then he introduced the slickest phone at CTIA: The world's first 4G handset, feautring a smoking fast 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. The HTC Evo also has an 8 megapixel camera, records HD video and packs a 1.3 megapixel 'forward facing' camera for videoconferencing and an HDMI port on the bottom so you can use it to play video... but the coolest feature is that it's designed to share its 4G connection with up to 8 other devices via WiFi.
