Seems HTC Evo 4G LTE owners won’t be able to enjoy their “procurance” calmly. I’ve come to such a conclusion because this smartphone is facing problems from the very first days of its launch. If you remember, the first attempt to impede its grandiose entrance was made by Apple, which was accusing the company of using some of its menu settings on the HTC One X and its modifications. The Evo 4G LTE is Sprint’s variant of the One X, and it suffered too. As a result, the launch was delayed by a few weeks. However, Sprint’s flagship was on everybody’s lips because it didn’t support Google Wallet payment system, though this is the only big carrier in the States cooperating with Google in this area, while the other three have chosen ISIS in days of yore. The latest statement by Google was expected to clear off further conversations. Alas, it didn’t.
At the beginning, Google blamed NFC, which is a must for a device that supports Google Wallet. But not many people believed it because Sprint earlier announced it wanted to switch to its own payment system called Sprint Touch. So geeks had every reason to think the lack of Google Wallet support is a unique punishment inflicted by the “mountain-based” software company.
Anyway, Sprint jointly with Google pushed out an update to fix the problem, but once it happened, users again started complaining about the carrier because their Evo 4G LTE smartphones still didn’t support this system. Nothing certain is known yet, so we’ll keep our ears high-strung to grab any conversation regarding this case.
