HTC EVO 4G breaks Sprint one-day sales record The HTC EVO 4G has broken Sprint's one-day sales record for a phone, says the carrier, which is the third largest wireless carrier in the U.S.
Running the Android operating system and boasting impressive specs, the smartphone is expected to have sold 320,000 units on June 4th, the day the device launched.

The estimate comes from research firm FBR Capital Markets who says Sprint likely saw 100,000 new customers and 220,000 upgrades. Sprint did not confirm the numbers.

Sprint was quick to boast about the 4G capabilities of the phone, saying users could stream World Cup matches live, with no lag.

Under the hood is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB ROM, 512MB RAM, a 1500 mAh battery and an 8GB microSD card. The device has a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive multi-touchscreen display (with pinch to zoom), Android 2.1 with Sense UI, Google Search, Google Maps, Google Talk, Gmail, Google Goggles, YouTube, Google Calendar syncing, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability for connecting up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices.

Additionally, the device has GPS with Sprint Navigation, a Digital compass, Bluetooth 2.1, a 3.5mm headset jack, FM radio, Amazon MP3 store, Qik video sharing, HDMI out a kickstand for hands-free viewing, an 8MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash (and 720p HD video recording) and an additional 1.3MP front-facing camera for video conferencing.

The device costs $200 with contract.

I just got a chance to mess around with the EVO today, and it really is incredible. No lag, Sense looks great, the screen is beautiful, and everything works as it should.
