It's now been a full month since the HTC EVO 4G was released . . . and I never saw one being used in the wild before this weekend. Even though I've heard from EVO users in Hawaii, where I live, I hadn't ever seen anyone actually using one outside of the stores that sell it.
Whenever I see anyone with a phone in their hand around here, it's always an iPhone, a BlackBerry, or a basic flip phone. But yesterday when I was waiting for a department store elevator with my husband and 7-month-old daughter, a middle-aged woman who was smiling at my baby girl (who was making a lot of noise) had an EVO in her hand! I recognized it and the Best Buy Platinum Series case it was in immediately but didn't do anything but spy on what the woman was doing with it out of the corner of my eye. I'm actually quite shy in person, so I couldn't strike up a conversation about the phone or tell her about G&E.
All she ended up doing when we got into the elevator was look through her contacts and make a call, which made my first in-the-wild sighting rather dull, but it was still fun to randomly see someone who actually had an EVO. I can't believe it took this long!
Have you spotted a lot of EVOs in your area? What kinds of things have you seen people doing with it?
