HTC EVO 4G could be among the first Android devices to support OnLive cloud gaming


Although this hasn't been officially confirmed yet, the HTC EVO 4G is rumored to be one of the first Android devices to officially support the cloud gaming service OnLive.

UK-based Pocket Gamer is reporting that the EVO 4G was mentioned by name during a recent discussion with the company, although there was no official verification that the phone would actually be the first handset to support the service. Still, launching OnLive for Android on the EVO 4G makes a lot of sense, as it's one of HTC's most popular devices, and HTC did purchase a large stake in OnLive last February.

Most likely, the HTC EVO 3D phone and the EVO View 4G tablet would also be among the first Android devices to officially support OnLive due to their improved hardware specifications, as well as the fact that the EVO 4G will receive end-of-life status in September.

As a cloud-based gaming platform, OnLive provides users with over 115 games that are synced, rendered, and stored on remote servers. News that the EVO 4G could be one of the first to get this service should make for some very happy gamers and EVO users alike!
