HTC EVO V 4G for Virgin Mobile announced, paired with unlimited 4G data for $35 per month
Well, this didn't take too long. It was only a couple of weeks when we heard that the Sprint 4G WiMAX network will be used by the carrier's pre-paid arm Virgin Mobile, yet announcements are already starting to come our way. Introducing the HTC EVO V 4G for Virgin Mobile – a pre-paid Android smartphone that rides on 4G WiMAX airwaves, yet requires no long-term commitment in order to be owned.

If the name sound familiar, that is because a recent rumor claimed that the HTC EVO 3D was to be rebranded as the HTC EVO V 4G, and that rumor now turns out to be quite accurate. What the HTC EVO V 4G features is a 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen and a pair of 5-megapixel cameras on its back that are capable of taking 3D images and video at HD resolution. There is a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera as well thrown in for good measure.

The press release does not reveal what processor ticks under the smartphone's hood, but it would not be surprising to have the 1.2GHz dual-core chip that the HTC EVO 3D sports. Further hardware specs include the presence of a microSD slot for storage expansion, 1GB RAM, 4GB on-board storage, and a 1,730mAh battery. Android 4.0 ICS comes out of the box with the HTC Sense 3.6 UI installed on top, which is more than welcome.

Does the HTC EVO V 4G spark your interest? Then get ready to drop $300 on the table. This, however, seems like a fair price considering the device you are getting in exchange, and the peace of mind from knowing that you are not tied to a carrier contract. The most affordable 4G plan is priced at $35 per month, which includes unlimited data and texts (2.5GB at full speed), as well as 300 anytime minutes. The smartphone will be made available for purchase on May 31.
