Good Housekeeping honors HTC EVO 4G with 2010 VIP award

Evo-gh Good Housekeeping isn't a publication that you'd normally turn to for HTC EVO 4G news, but the Good Housekeeping Research Institute (GHRI) scientists have apparently turned to the Android superphone when determining the winners of their third annual Very Innovative Products awards.

After examining thousands of products, the GHRI selected 10 products that were "the top performers that truly solve problems and make life simpler, safer, and more fun." The EVO was the only phone to make the cut (the 3G iPad was the only other gadget), so it's really quite an honor considering the magazine/website's readership, influence, and history. 

Other award winners included pumpable laundry detergent, a bladeless fan, a corkscrew hairpin, a convertible iron/steamer, an ice pop maker, an eight-person tent, a robotic floor cleaner, and a steam washer.

How many other phones have ever been in the company of a washing machine and a pin heralded for being able to hold "updo styles more securely and elegantly than twice as many bobby pins"? That must've been an interesting after-party.
