Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE Finally Receives Official Android 4.3 and Sense 5 Update via RUU!
Some say that a device just now receiving Android 4.3 is rather late to the party, and that most users here much prefer AOSP-derived SENSE-less ROMs—and they just might be right. All we know is, it’s called the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE. Forgive me, as perhaps I’ve been watching too much TopGear.
Getting back to the point of this story, another device has just now entered the Android 4.3 fray, and it’s Sprint’s take on the popular One X: the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The update was shared by HTC VP Martin Fichter on Twitter earlier today, and it is not available via traditional methods. Rather than coming in the form of an OTA update, the firmware is delivered via a side loadable RUU that will completely wipe your data in the process.
So without further ado, head over to HTC’s Download Server or Martin Fichter’s Tweet to get in on the action. And once you’re done, be sure to drop by XDA Senior Member WindyCityRockr‘s update discussion thread and the comments section below to share your thoughts. It may not be KitKat, but it’s a step in the right direction!

The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...
Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
