I meant to post these sooner:
Android Central's review of the HTC Evo 4G
Android and Me's review of the HTC Evo 4G


While we were standing in line Friday morning (along with about 30 other people, and it had grown to that size again by the time we exited the store), the HTC rep spoke with each of us a little bit, and I enthusiastically informed him that this would be my very first smartphone. He smiled, and said, "Well, have you gotten to hold one, yet?" I said, "No, not yet, but I'm looking forward to it," and he proceeded to hand me his. :) I was the first person outside of the store to get to hold the Evo. Squee!

The North Point store handled things pretty well: refreshments were available, and the manager brought several of us bottles of water. Everything moved steadily, though the store's network got a bit sluggish with all the sales entries. Still, it didn't crash, and we're now very happy customers.

It has also been somewhat exciting to see the real-world excitement mirroring the online buzz: we were in Best Buy today, and a couple was examining the Evo display. Since the store only had a plastic mock-up available, David let them test drive his for a few moments. As it turns out, they'd already ordered theirs, and were closely monitoring shipping information from UPS. It seems that Sprint sold out of them (and most stores had a very decent allocation), and they were waiting patiently for delivery. I'm glad we queued early!

It's now Sunday night, and I've been holding my own in my hot little hands practically non-stop since that time. No, I haven't been sleeping with it, but should I choose to do so, there are a number of alarm clock applications available ... ;)

Now, if you forget it at home, you will feel naked and oddly cut off from society! You will also begin to annoy your non-smartphone-enabled friends by answering every hypothetical question with "I'm not sure, lemme look it up on my phone!"

There should be a 12 step program for smartphone users, but if there was, we'd use an app to find the time and location, an app to navigate there, an app to order pizza to be delivered there and once there, we'd argue over which apps work best for those things!

*laughs* It was bad enough when I left my dumbphone at home. A co-worker once told me, "I'd think it more likely to see you naked than without your phone!" Now, if I leave it at home, I think I'll actually have to go back for it. :)

Thanks for being a fellow member of the support group! :D
