Sup Sup Supersonic to the rescue!
No we are not talking about any super hero. Nor is it the name of a new comic. Then what is it?
It is a new WiMAX-enabled smartphone with Android. Yes ‘Supersonic’ is it’s name & with the buzz from the Nexus One starting to wane, it could well turn out to be a front runner to be crowned the next iPhone killer.
Sprint (as it is known) will be carrying an WiMAX/Android version of the jaw-dropping HTC HD2. The biggest (only?) complaint about the HD2 is that it runs Windows Mobile 6.5, though HTC’s Sense makes an effort at making it usable.
It could also turn out to be the world’s first 4G phone.
We know 2010’s just begun, but between all this noise and the promise of a legitimate 4G radio on board, let’s be real — we’re already looking at a very, very early contender for smartphone of the year.
OK, so this new Sprint phone is unlikely to be an iPhone killer. But maybe the Dell Mini 5 could be. It has a SIM slot and 5-inch touch screen and can make calls.
