The HTC EVO 4G goes on sale today, earning the honor of becoming America’s first 4G smartphone.

Running the Android 2.1 platform with an impressive set of features including both front-facing and an 8 megapixel back-facing camera, GPS, a 1GHz CPU and the ability to output to 720p HD.

The EVO is an impressive device, a sign that HTC and Google’s Android platform are deservedly gaining ground against Apple’s iPhone. But it might be a little early to celebrate.

According to Electronista, the team that first gained root access to the HTC EVO have announced that Sprint’s customizations of Android have been poorly handled.

“Sprint’s customizations of Android are so bad that an Android application could get access to all of your data with very little work. You are putting your data at risk of theft from not just one vulnerability, but a whole suite of vulnerabilities.”

It remains to be seen how the EVO functions out in the wild, but it’s only fair to assume that 4G will face a rocky start in terms of coverage, speed and battery life.

  1. I have an Evo 4G and I can say that this device could almost take the place of my laptop.  I don’t even use my laptop at home any longer. It has all the great apps, cool features and great sound.
