XDA Exclusive: HTC Knight (Updated)
Thanks to a source of ours, we got some news about a new phone coming to Sprint. The phone is called the HTC Knight and runs Android. However, we are unsure of what version exactly. It has a sliding screen, which indicates some sort of keyboard based on the following text from an XML file.

It also looks like an Evo and has the same micro USB plug. For now, all we have is this one image of the device.
