    The evo was rotating 90 degrees so we could see a front view on the left of the screen, then a big 4g and sprint and the usual stuff on the right

    Good to hear that they are finally reaching out to a larger media scale aside from the internet, but it only makes sense that they do it now instead of beforehand. Because they will be having enough trouble supplying for those that already know and want it at this point. If they were to have reached a larger audience there would have been a bigger frenzy and a lot of dissapointed customers who wouldn't be able to attain one on launch day.

    Cool for us tech geeks.

    But, for the average consumer they will have no more idea why they should buy an EVO after this ad than they did before.

    VERY NICE SPRINT!!!! Too bad it hasn't been running long. Would've been nice if it was running the entire month of May to build up hype.

    Good job Sprint, with less than 48 hours from launch...

    It's a good spot, though, I'll give them that.

    Well...the theme here was Evolution.

    It's the first commercial, kinda like a teaser, kinda what all the Droid stuff was all about, they didn't tell us what the Droid actually does until later in the ad campaign.

    I hope this is only just a teaser commercial because If not it sucks. It Only shows the phone for a couple of seconds.

    Whoever is in charge of Sprint's individual phone marketing should be fired!

    1. The Pre commercials that didn't showcase the main features of the phone. The ability to multitask with the card system and the physical keyboard. The failure of the Pre(yes I said failure) is just as much to blame on subpar hardware as it is on dreadful marketing.

    2. Let's look at those Droid commercials. The early ones, if I remember correctly, didn't even let the consumer know it was a phone. THey were very intriguing. And once they let us know it was a phone they concentrated on what the phone could do. Great marketing.

    3. And now we have the Evo commercial. We see great moments in evolution for technology and it culminates in the Evo. And the Evo is the next step because... No answer. WTF! Sprint. Show video chat!. Or better yet. . .

    Do a quick montage of a soccer mom using Sprint Navigation to get to the soccer game while calling somebody to tell them to bring drinks. Then at the soccer game show dad videoing it on the phone while the grandparents are at home watching via Qik. Then on the drive home big sister sends a quick text letting everybody know you are celebrating winning the big game in 20 minutes at your house(using Swype to type). Then she quickly uploads a picture of little brother to Facebook to share with all of her friends. Then at home connecting the phone to the HDTV showing highlights of the game with the EVO resting on its kickstand by the TV. Now that's a concept that we as Americans can embrace and would want to buy into!

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME ... That's just as much a crap commerscial as the creepy girl ... I REALLY do NOT understand Sprints marketing scheme ... They never come out blazing their weapons ... They NEVER show what the phones can do in the real world and they NEVER cross market ... They show a crappy stoneage commercial that anyone of us could have put togetherWith the same ol boring elevator music ... ABSOLUTELY NO excitement what-so-ever ... I have NEVER understood this ... Ask all of yourselves this ... If Sprint and HTC would have come to YOU to make a commercial ... What would you pitch ... But thats just my opinion ... lol

    Just what I think. They need to tout the specs. Otherwise the average people will interpret this as a new Instinct model or something.
