Here it is, boys and girls, the long-awaited 4G Android smartphone for Sprint. We've known for a while that HTC is set to manufacture the device, but otherwise this WiMax phone has remained a mystery. Until today. Engadget received some tips from a "trusted source". Here are the details;

The smartphone's code-name is Supersonic. It features a 4.3" normal-LCD display and a thin, HD2-like form factor. It will have a kick-stand on the back and run Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense UI. It will be available in white, and possibly other colors. The phone is said to be very fast, which likely means we're dealing with a Snapdragon processor inside.

Right now, the Supersonic sounds like an HD2 with Android and a 4G radio, which would be absolutely fantastic. Android fans have been clamoring for a version of the HD2 wiped clean of WinMo for months. Could it be that HTC will finally deliver one, and add in a dollop of 4G to up the ante?
