Well when you start advertising a phone months before its launch... i would expect nothing less than a long waiting list. Nonetheless I will be first at my sprint store to pick one up. Had they advertised the pre better and prior to its launch like the EVO, maybe it wouldnt have done so bad for sprint. Also launching a phone in beta stages of its OS isn't really going to help. (not that it was in beta testing... it just seemed like it with all the missing features). It could have done so much better. But pre is old news. I want the EVO NOW!

They better have an overstock of these phones. It is the most annoying thing when companies advertise the hell out of something and then when it finally comes out you can't get one.

"Everyone's favorite WiMAX-powered Android device finally has a date and a price, and you don't have terribly long to wait: June 4 is the date that you'll want to be lining up outside your local Sprint store for an EVO 4G, $199 in hand (assuming you're signing up for a new contract, of course -- according to the fine print, the full cost is $450 before all discounts). Interestingly, Sprint has specifically called out that you'll be able to video chat (remember, the EVO 4G has a front-facing cam) over both 3G and 4G using Qik -- not a bad choice, considering the company's well-established expertise with streaming live video out of handsets." Yes, yes it is coming out on the 4th.

so the phone is $450 retail?? not bad. im a premiere customer and the only discount i have is $75 off the retail price of the phone. cant afford to pay tht much for the phone despite how nice it looks...im glad it has insurance on it unlike the I-PHONE LOL

if the Nexus One had screen break issues, dont think you think that the EVO will have the same problems as the screen is big. not a pocket phone thats for sure.

It is always better to buy a phone a few mnths after it arrives in stores as it will always have a few kinks to work out - much like XBOX, PS3 and WINDOWS.....

networkdood yes you are 100% right and thats what i was planning on doing, im going to sit back and wait a little until issues may or may come to news. i still think its great to have a big screen but my thinking is more of a chance for cracks and such

June 4th Official release date. $199.99 after rebate. I'm suprised Phonearena didn't catch up to that yet it's been hours already. Anyway.. @ 199.99 that's one "Droid incredible" killer for sure...lol
