OTA update for Sprint's HTC Evo

Hey everyone! So I just wanted to update everyone on the most recent update sent OTA (over the air) by HTC for the Evo. This last update seems to have resolved a lot of the issues that accompanied the update sent last year. Here is a list of items included in the update:

Blockbuster (including WM DRM 10)
Kindle eReader
Preloaded game: NOVA
Sprint Zone update
Telenav update
VVM App update
Sprint TV app update
SWYPE Keyboard
Scan Now Widget for 4G

I'll have to admit, I already signed up for a Blockbuster membership and switched over to SWYPE. Personally, it'll be difficult for me to switch from my Netflix subscription to Blockbuster but I think it's worth to have as a backup. I'm still waiting for the Netflix InstantPlay app for my Evo.

As far as SWYPE on my phone, I absolutely love it. I did rag on this keyboard when it came out, being a former Blackberry user and not quite used to the virtual keyboard, but now I don't know how I got through messaging without it. Although, having a phone with the screen size of the Evo does not really allow SWYPE-ing while the phone is sideways (you'll end up dislocating your thumb).

Anyways, let me know what you guys think with comments, questions, etc.
