Simultaneous Voice and Data Cannot be Handled by HTC EVO 4G
Oh well, perhaps the new Sprint HTC EVO 4G smartphone isn’t as cracked up as it’s hyped to be, yes it will be faster, yes it will run of the WiMAX network, but when it comes to handling data and voice simultaneously, not a chance reports an article over on ubergizmo.
Word has it the old CDMA cannot handle data and voice at the same time seems to ring true with the Sprint HTC EVO 4G as HTC has apparently confirmed via an article on the android community, that when you sue the HTC EVO 4G for data you will not be able to use CDMA for voice.
However; apparently there is a ray of light as the word is the issues is not due to strict limitation in the hardware, thus if would like to throw a little upgrading magic the HTC EVO 4G’s way sometime in the future this issue may just get solved.
Don’t go placing any bets on it though. So is being able to use simultaneous voice and data a deal breaker for you with the Sprint HTC EVO 4G?
