Everyone is clamoring about the new HTC EVO phone, which will be the first Sprint 4G phone, and the first 4G Android device, when it launches in the next couple months. Here's what you need to know to get the most out of this upcoming phone.

First off, you'll need to live in one of the cities that has 4G coverage. As you might expect, it's still limited now: only 11 states have coverage, and some notable ones like New York and California aren't even in the list yet. Here's the complete list:

Atlanta, GA
Milledgeville, GA
Honolulu, HI
Maui, HI
Boise, ID
Chicago, IL
Baltimore, MD
Las Vegas, NV
Charlotte, NC
Greensboro, NC
High Point, NC
Winston-Salem, NC
Raleigh, NC
Cary, NC
Chapel Hill, NC
Durhman, NC
Portland, OR
Salem, OR
Philadelphia, PA
Abilene, TX
Amarillo, TX
Austin, TX
Corpus Christi, TX
Dalla/Ft. Worth, TX
Killeen/Temple, TX
Lubbock, TX
Midland/Odessa, TX
San Antonio, TX
Waco, TX
Wichita Falls, TX
Bellingham, WA
Seattle, WA


This map shows the complete coverage area:



Sprint is also already breaking 4G ground in Boston, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Minneapolis, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Those areas should get coverage by the end of the year.

Also, if you're going to take your EVO out with you on a road trip or to the airport or, heck, even to a Starbucks, bring your laptop along. This phone will let you use it as a mobile hotspot, and promises to be easier than other "tethering" connections that currently exist on 3G devices.

Also, don't leave your HDMI cables unnoticed. The EVO actually has HDMI output, allowing you to watch your own videos recorded with the built-in high-def camcorder in stunning big-screen HD glory, with a simple direct connection to your TV.

In short, the EVO could change the way you use your phone on a day-to-day basis. If you're lucky enough to live in one of the early 4G cities, you owe it to the rest of the country to get your hands on this.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
