Sprint retracts HTC Evo 4G sales claims

US network provider Sprint was quick to claim that the HTC Evo 4G was its fastest selling smartphone when it launched last week, but it has since said that its information was wide of the mark.

The HTC Evo did cause something of a stir Stateside, with many queuing outside the various Sprint outlets across the nation. Many are tipping it to be a serious rival to the newly announced iPhone 4 and from a technical point of view it is certainly in the same league.

"We originally reported that the total number of HTC EVO 4G devices sold on launch day was three times the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three days on the market combined. We inadvertently erred in the comparison," stated Sprint via a press release.

The Evo's killer feature is its 4G network connectivity, although this is not relevant for UK customers as no such networks currently exist over here. However, its eight megapixel camera and high definition video capture capabilities still make it an interesting smartphone.
