Amazon chops the price of the HTC EVO 4G in half to $99
Seven months and still going strong, the HTC EVO 4G seemingly changed many things along the way as it undeniably was one of the more memorable smartphones released in recent memory.

Matching its high performance in every way was its never relinquishing on-contract price of $199.99 – which stands even to this day through the wireless carrier. However, Amazon has chopped its price in half to a mere $99.99 after being available on the market for over half a year now. The pricing isn't shabby at all when you take into consideration its massive 4.3” display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 720p video recording, 4G connectivity, and front facing camera for video chat.

So if you're looking to start a new contract with Sprint, now seems to be the prime time to jump on this fantastic deal for the HTC EVO 4G. And did we mention that the pristine white version of the handset is also available for $99.99?

As an Evo owner, I'm sorry to see this price reduction. This means the phone is now becoming outdated. Unfortunately, in the wireless industry, this is all too common place.

This is why when I hear readers saying I will wait for this phone or that phone, I laugh. If everyone waited for that next phone, no one would purchase.

I bought the Evo because of the specs. Everything wanted on a smartphone, was incorporated for the very first time within this small piece of hardware. It was a milestone not seen since the original iPhone. Now it is soon going to be lost in the shuffle. I will however, enjoy it while it is still viable. It is an amazing device that I will miss once it is retired. Fortunately, it still keeps up with what is currently out there. Those that diss this phone, obviously haven't worked with it.

Since I don't believe in Jailbreaking or rooting, the Evo meets all the criteria without modification. I can't say that for any other phone. None!
