Just like Virgin Mobile, Boost is getting its very first 4G smartphone – a smartphone that will use the Sprint 4G WiMAX network. The device in question is the HTC EVO Design 4G, which Sprint has been offering since last October. But while there don't seem to be any hardware changes made to the handset, the out-of-the-box software has been improved. Most notably, the smartphone comes with Android 4.0 out of the box, so no need to wait for an update to start rolling out.
The HTC EVO Design 4G will set you back $300 without the need for your signature under a 2-year carrier agreement. Of course, you will want to pair it with a 4G data plan, which starts at $55 per month, although that figure will be gradually reduced to $40 after 18 months, as long as you pay your bills on time. Included in that $55 data plan are unlimited texts and nationwide calls.
Those of you who are interested in getting the HTC EVO Design 4G from Boost Mobile can do so starting May 31.
