Sprint: HTC EVO 4G LTE will arrive on or around May 24
It has been a wild ride for the HTC EVO 4G LTE and it hasn’t even made its debut yet. As you may know, it missed its May 18 release date due to a hold up at customs stemming from the whole HTC, Apple patent fiasco. Best Buy then decided it was an expert on the matter and started emailing customers that the device would be released on May 23rd. It later realized that it has no idea what its talking about and should probably leave the matter to Sprint or HTC to comment on and rescinded that announcement.

As we reported last night, the situation was resolved and HTC phones began making their way past the border. Sprint has now officially commented on the matter to its customers who have pre-ordered the device and have since been stuck in limbo.

Customers who pre-ordered HTC EVO 4G LTE…Your wait is almost over! Sprint expects to begin shipping HTC EVO 4G LTE for arrival on or around Thursday, May 24 to customers who pre-ordered the device online from Sprint.

We will provide details on the full national launch as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone who has been patient while waiting for their HTC EVO 4G LTE.  We will continue to update this post as additional details are available.
So there you have it. Crisis averted (hopefully). Pre-ordered HTC EVO 4G LTEs should start hitting those doorsteps around the 24th. We'll be sure to bring you the info about the national launch as soon as details are available.

When I read about the shipments making it past customs, the first thought to cross my mind was "the first transport is away (YAYYYY!!!!)" announcement at Echo Base, Hoth. Is there something wrong with me?

Damn you, Apple. I tried the EVO 4G LTE at a store last night and it was awesome and nothing like the iPhone (which is good, obviously).

Unfortunately the promise of smart phones is no longer viable. With data cost skyrocketing and carriers capping bandwidth, its back to the days of SMS and voice.
