Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G: It Sizzles?

I was just perusing through Sprint’s developers website and came across something kinda strange. On the site, Sprint’s upcoming 4G powerhouse device was listed with all of its glorious specs. However, the title of it threw me off. It was called the “HTC EVO 4G Sizzle.”

No, this is not Photoshopped. Anyone have any thoughts as to what this is all about? It’s probably either a typo, or someone messing around. Either way, it’s good for a laugh.

See for yourself…

    Maybe it gets so hot in your pocket from all it's power that your leg skin sizzles and melts into your jeans?

  • satla

    • duder

      Mozilla pwns but he should be using the Glasser addon.

  • punkynlew

    Did you notice the specs for the “Sizzle” claim an amoled display? Something funny there. The HTC Evo 4g has been consistently reported to have LCD. Lew

      I keep hearing it indeed has an AMOLED display.

    It doesn't say sizzle- look at the bottom of the screen. LIES!!

  • jones,davey

    Wow an 8MB camera. I wonder if thats better than MP.

  • Mohammad Sabeh-Ullah

    the "8MB" thing is legit. here is the actual sprint developer's website:
    but no, it is not the EVO 4G Sizzle

  • guy

    Just go to the exact url in the picture. It really does say HTC EVO 4G Sizzle.

  • mbrenner

    I think that "Sizzle" is an adjective in this case, not a noun. Ie add speak for this phone is going to be a hot (desirable) item.

  • mark

    maybe they are saying 4G will fry your brain lol

  • guest

    Yes, it actually does!

  • chris

    it didnt when i typed in developer.sprint.com but when on that site and i clicked on the devices tab it sure did show up with the sizzle part.

  • passerby

    If you go to this site and watch the video that plays, you'll notice that at the very beginning it says "Playing "Gypsy Sizzle"' .


    • duder

      I can't get that video to work anywhere. Keeps telling me I need some funky WMV plugin but when I try to install it it says not applicable to my system. Win7x64. Also, Gypsy was what it was called internally.

  • aversusb

    If true, I think it is just referring to the buzz around this phone. YOu know, the sizzle not the steak. Sell the sizzle and the steak is free! Get the buzz/sizzle for this phone to high levels before the device actually launches. Hence this term showing up on a developers site.

  • notphotoshopped

    what is a "captive" display?

  • http://htcevo4gphone.com Bobby B

    The EVO, Supersonic or Sizzle are all cool names.

  • snoopie
