Sprint EVO 4G Debuts, With First Ad
Sprint has debuted the first TV commercial for its new HTC EVO 4G device, the first 4G mobile phone released in the U.S., which arrives in stores Friday.
In honor of the occasion, the 30-second spot highlights several "firsts" throughout history, featuring a dessert-based, multi-century Rube Goldberg contraption featuring the invention of the wheel, the bicycle, the locomotive, the record player, the typewriter, the lightbulb, the telephone, the automobile, television, the airplane, a rocketship, tapes, computer chips and calculators. A progression of cell phones leads finally to the EVO 4G itself.
A voiceover discusses firsts before ultimately asking "What will do you first with EVO, the first 4G phone?"
