Best Buy jump starting the HTC EVO 4G with its usual pre-order process
Not sooner did Sprint finally clear things up surrounding the HTC EVO 4G's exact pricing and availability, big box retailer Best Buy surely jumped onto the scene to capture some of the attention as they announced starting up their usual pre-order process. If having to fork over $299.99 up front to get your hands on a brand spanking new HTC EVO 4G at a Sprint retail location doesn't float your boat, you can simply bypass that mail-in-rebate and scoop up a handset for the easier to swallow price of $199.99 on contract at a select Best Buy location. Depending on what shipment levels Sprint has for the smartphone, we're hoping that there will be enough to satisfy the initial demand so that customers won't have to quickly scurry to other locations trying to find one. As opposed to doing that, you can drop by a participating Best Buy location where you won't have to be put through those long wait times and lines when this thing goes live on day one. Following what we've seen in the past with their pre-order process, customers would have to hand over $50 to Best Buy which is then placed onto a gift card to signify your guarantee. When launch day comes around, you can go back to the store where you placed the pre-order and use the gift card towards the purchase of it.
