More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative.

Toggle 4G on HTC EVO 4G
If you’d like to be able to quickly switch on and off 4G on your brand new HTC EVO for whatever reason (saving battery etc), check out XDA forum member rdude‘s Android toggle widget.
Designed to work on any launcher or home screen including HTC Sense, Launcher2 or Home++, rdude ended up coding the toggle himself after an unsuccessful search for such a widget.

Currently, the app is only supported for the HTC EVO 4G.
