With the help of the root-only SetCPU app for the HTC EVO 4G, the handset's processor was successfully overclocked to 1.2+GHz, which resulted in a linpack improvement of over 25% with no impact on stability. Now all we need is a 3,000mAh battery. Check out the video below:
Acording to a trusted source, there are five new WP7 handsets from HTC coming to North American market. First up is the HTC Scorpion (aka, Olympian) which should be going to Verizon and Bell Mobility, and is rumored to be packing Froyo with WiMax and a 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU. Others are four worldphones with dual-mode CDMA and GSM on-board: the HTC Spark_W (Bell Mobility and Verizon), HTC Gold_W (Sprint), HTC Shubert (Telus), and the HTC Mondrian (Telus, Rogers and AT&T).
HTC Dream and Magic users can now get a taste of Android 2.2 Froyo with the respective unofficial ports of the OS. It's nice to see that even not powerful handsets are capable of running the latest OS build.
I must admit - for a Chinese clone this iHTC HD2 handset isn't that bad. Sure, you get a 3.6" display instead of the 4.3" one, though it's still WVGA, and Windows Mobile 6.5.3 as the OS. Plus, a 5 megapixel autofocus cam is a very nice addition, especially on a device opf such origin. The price is 1,500 yuan in China.
