Sprint now says HTC EVO 4G LTE will be available June 2nd
As we told you this morning, Sprint confirmed today that the HTC EVO 4G LTE would be arriving “in the next few days.” Only a few hours later, the carrier has now decided to define “the next few days” and nail down an exact date.

Sprint now says that the HTC EVO 4G LTE will be available in stores and available through Sprint.com on Saturday, June 2nd. As you probably know, this device was hung up at customs and missed its original launch date. Those that preordered the handset started receiving their devices a few days ago, but the EVO 4G LTE hasn’t been available for purchase from retailers.

The HTC EVO 4G LTE will be available for $199.99 with a new 2-year contract with Sprint.

I am going to patiently wait to see what pops off in July and August....I can use my last Premier customer upgrade now and will have to hold for 2 years....I like SVDO for the EVO 4G LTE, and HD voice, but I would like to see what Moto offers. The SVDO seems to be what I will buy this for outside of screen size and clarity. By that time I can acess if any bugs warrant a pass. I also like the Samsung, but radio antennas always have issues on CDMA....We shall see....

Awesome to know. I just texted my boss so we don't get blindsided like we did when preorders were released for fulfillment. I hope we get to start selling the Evo on the same day.

A lot of stores could use employees like you.

Thank you. I humbly accept the compliment. :)

I may be going in and working opening to close, depending on what stock we get in. I'll find out by tomorrow what the story is. It sucks because my boss is supposed to start his vacation that day, and our full timer has his day off and is completely unavailable, which leaves me, our lead, and the two noobs we just hired to handle the demand.

I gotta say, HTC is handling this well. They remained patient during the bogus Customs issue that Apple caused, and not only did they announce the phone would arrive in "the next few days", they had a date set shortly after. Now THIS is a company that stays devoted to its consumers and is willing to take a hit or two if it means giving them what they have been waiting for in a somewhat timely manner.

If this phone goes as well as the One X and the One S, HTC will have an excellent summer.

The difference between a corporate employee and a third party.

I tell you what, this EVO-LTE is a very very very GREAT phone, I don't blame Apple for wanting to have this phone stop at the border, you have to get your hands on one to understand how well this phone works!.

This phone is AWESOME. The dudes at XDA have this phone rooted with a Custom ROM already.
