As we’re all well aware by now, the HTC EVO 4G LTE’s launch date has been inked in the books for May 18th, which is a mere two days away, but after last night’s big news, it might no longer be the case. Instead, HTC has given indication that the highly anticipated launch of the next EVO is going to be delayed partly because of this whole fiasco – as shipments of the handset are stuck at the moment over at customs.
Adding more truth to the reality, Sprint has stopped taking pre-orders for the smartphone through its own web site, and on top of that, the previously known May 18th launch date isn’t being mentioned whatsoever anymore. Meaning, it’s looking like a delay is in the works for this baby. Nevertheless, Sprint hasn’t come out to one-hundred percent verify the claims about the EVO 4G LTE being delayed.
Maybe this thing might be settled before the 18th, so that’s probably why Sprint has yet to go ahead and confirm the allegations about a delay? Still, it could be that they’re playing it cautious at this point, considering nothing is set in stone, but either way, we’re certain that a lot of people will be saddened if a delay is actually going to happen.
