As if anybody needed any more evidence of Android's rising popularity, we find ourselves with another screen grab to add to the pile. This time it's the HTC Evo 4G taking center stage during the latest episode of Fringe. According to our tipster, this Evo 4G belongs longtime iPhone user Peter Bishop. Who knows why he switched, but we're not going to question this 190 IQ toting genius.

Anybody else willing to bet that a long press on the home key would reveal Angry Birds running in the background?

Hey, I've got an Android with Angry Birds. I wish Olivia needed to talk to me.

BBubbaGump says:

To me that seems too narrow from the pic to be EVO, maybe Epic?

Telc says:

Nah. That SMS UI is HTC Sense. Plus Epic has Sprint logo in middle/top. BTW I saw the Hero on "The Event" the last two weeks.

Spork1673 says:

its the evo

It's the Evo. Love Fringe and saw its the Evo, showed the red camera lining around the camera. Epic doesn't do that :P

I loves me some "Fringe". Yeah, Peter Bishop is smart enough to resist the Apple's distortion field, and get a smart Android phone. The iPhone might be more appropriate for Walter Bishop, a pot-head, that is distracted by shiny objects.

Plus, since he frequently travels to parallel dimensions, Peter is familiar with simultaneous multi-tasking.

Oh, and yeah, I really wish Olivia would return my calls.

Or, heck, even Faux-livia, they are equally hawt, although the latter would probably shoot me while I slept.

We all know Peter Bishop is from the Other Side, which is why he used to use an iPhone. But with that world becoming unstable and full of Quarantine zones, Peter has opted for freedom.

The Motorola Droid was also on the latest Bones

The EVO is also being used as the primary phone on CSI NY

NoSpin says:

After passing through different universes, Peter doesn't want to be locked down with an iPhone anymore.

dtblair24 says:

is anyone else's logo have yellow? or is that just what they do for product placement so it is more noticeable?

JoshUng says:

Mine doesn't have yellow, also (though its cut off in this picture), the top left didn't say HTC like my phone does, so looks like not an actual unit, just a paid Sprint ad.

mstrowe says:

I was glad to see the Evo on fringe i rewinded it 5x to make sure.
Plus sprint is a sponsor of fringe.

tim6253 says:

The yellow is just for product placement.

After the latest update uncapping the FPS, I'm think the Evo will get even more of a better Rep. I hope stores with working demos get updated so people who want to play with it can see how much better it is only after a few tweaks and updates. More Evos on episodes and less iPhones, I have always seen a iPhone but still have yet to see anyone on a episode with a iphone4. And we all know why lmao.

Unfortunately I have seen the iPhone 4 (yuck) on a show - Hawaii Five-0. Love the show, hate that they use iPhones. Come on and get with the program. Get an android in their hands.

BTW, I have also seen the EVO in an episode of The Closer.

thingg says:

oh yesss I saw that too. so cool

deaofly says:

Oh yea I forgot About Hawaii Five-0, well the iphone4 sits great with him. There's like no fun with that dude, maybe its part of he scripted but most iPhone users act like him,an ass. I think they would have a better show if It had more funny stuff. My opinion though.

dougeetx says:

Angry Bird level 3-2 here.

Trun says:

If you look at the forum post I made about this a few days ago, it is clearly the Evo, I got a shot of the back of the phone, too. HTC's signature Red under the back plate around the camera.

Problacklist says:

Glad to see another Celebrity with an Evo. P.S. it also Appeared on CSI:NY The Main Character Mac Taylor Had it.

Lockeskidney says:

Hey! i posted this in the EVO forum. why dont i get love?

gdigenis says:

I figured it was an android phone but wasn't sure which model at first as we don't have that model in Canada. And your tipster is wrong about Peter being a long time iPhone user, he has been using Nokia s60 phones since the first season for the majority of time. Good to see android devices in use

Terry K says:

On Five-0, Danno uses a Boost Clutch (I480)!

I know i've seen an android on 5-0 but can't remember who had it.

Impulses says:

Danno had a Hero on a previous episode where he ran a fingerprint scan, so did most of the team, they seem to switch cell phones about as often as they get in a shootout. :p
