Win a free Evo 4G from Android Central! [contest]

Just reply to this thread in our forums and tell us what feature you're most excited about in the Evo 4G. Maybe it's the massive 4.3-inch screen. Maybe it's the full 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Maybe it's the 4G WiMax data speeds. Or the 8-device WiFi hotspot capability. Or the HDMI-out. Or the two-way video chat. Or the simultaneous voice and date. Or its ability to overthrow small nations (roaming charges may apply).

T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide gets priced at $150

0

Looks like everybody's favorite T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide just got a price. According to a leaked slide from Tmonews, the myTouch 3G Slide will be available for $149.99 with new 2-year contract and $399.99 off contract (that's Even More and Even More Plus for those counting). Given the decent specs of the myTouch 3G Slide and the fact that it'll be running Android 2.1 with Sense, that $150 price looks like a steal. If you're in the market for a solid Android phone with a physical keyboard, the myTouch 3G is a really great option. We won't be surprised if the myTouch 3G Slide becomes the phone that'll replace many people's G1.

HTC Wildfire -- a smaller Desire -- announced in the U.K.

10

HTC today announced the Wildfire (you might remember that name from a contest HTC ran), essentially the Desire squeezed down into a 3.2-inch screen, with a lower price the end result. (That's also known as "entry level" these days.)

The screen itself is QVGA, so it's not as high-resolution as you get on the Desire, Nexus One and the like. But it does have a 5-megapixel camera the new HTC Sense, WiFi, Bluetooth, aGPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card and Europe's 3G bands. It also features the same trackpad found on the Desire and Legend.

The Wildfire also features a new widget that lets you recommend an application by e-mail.

Pricing was not announced, but the Wildfire should be available in Europe and Asia in the third quarter. Full presser after the break.

Turn off Sense on the Sprint Evo 4G

47

This one's going to make a lot of you Android purists happy: Unlike on the Droid Incredible, you can run the stock Android 2.1 home screen on the Sprint Evo 4G, as our pal Andrew from Androinica showed us the other night at the launch party in New York. Switch off Sense (again, just the home screen -- the other HTC tweaks should remain) through the same method as on the HTC Desire and you get the stock launcher, the usual home screens and the stinkeye from any HTC people who might be lurking about. Check out the video after the break. [via Androinica]

Droid Eris Android 2.1 update -- the good, the bad, and the ugly

81

By now everyone knows the Verizon has started slowly rolling out the Android 2.1 update for the HTC Droid Eris.  Just like the Motorola Droid 2.1 update, you can wait for the OTA notification or dive in and grab the file yourself if you're like me and have no patience (and don't mind wiping your phone).  It's not all good news though.  There seems to be some discrepancy between the proposed Verizon change log and what users are seeing after they have updated.  Follow through the break for the skinny.
