Yep. It is finally official! The first HTC EVO world phone has just been announced at Sprint's Newsroom.

From the looks of it, the EVO Design 4G is going to be touting a 4-inch qHD display, a 1.2GHz (single core?) processor, Android 2.3 with at least HTC Sense 2.1 (most likely Sense 3.0), 5MP rear (with HD video recording) and 1.3MP front cameras, WiMAX, and last but not least GSM-roaming (for you international travelers out there).

And it can be yours for just $99.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate, of course).

In my opinion, I think we found ourselves a nice little mid-line EVO here. Who else wishes the HTC EVO Shift 4G would have touted specs like this?
