Sprint can claim victory in the quest to offer smart phone users the fastest download service available -- at least temporarily.
When put to the test, the EVO functioned well and appeared to load pages noticeably faster than a 3G iPhone on AT&T's network.
The downside? Sprint says 4G service is spotty.
Sprint's 4G service launched in the Metroplex late last year. It is available in just more than 30 U.S. cities.
But Kaufman said it's only a matter of time before other carriers catch up with Sprint.
"The competition will go on and on and on," he said. "Every year, you'll hear about a new generation, first it will be four-and-a-half G, then 5G."
Best Buy's Ivan Jones said the competition for the fastest service has exploded over the past two years.
"There is a very healthy competition going on, but I believe that is good for the consumer," he said. "When you have competition, that gives us better products."
