Finally, the HTC Evo 4G LTE has landed – online and in stores, Sprint has announced on Saturday. After an extended stay at the customs due to copyright infringement issues with Apple, the device is now available, just in time for its release.
Enthusiasts and fans who have been waiting for its arrival can now place an order of the Android smartphone online or walk to their local stores and get the HTC Evo for just $199.99 with a two year agreement.
For those who may have forgotten, the HTC Evo 4G LTE smartphone features a 4.7 inch Super IPS LCD2 display with a 720×1280 resolution (~312ppi), 1GB RAM, 16GB built-in storage (expandable via microSD), an 8MP LED flash camera and a 1.3MP front-shooter, Dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and Android 4.0.3 ICS operating system.
Whether you are a Sprint Evo line diehard or just looking to upgrade to a slicker fully-featured smartphone, this powerful device is a great, and cheaper, option for you. The 22-year agreement comes with an option for eligible upgrade
The journey of the Evo to the shelves has not been easy. The handset was set to hit the shelves on May 18 but an order from the International Trade Commission that required it to review and investigate Apple’s complaint that HTC allegedly infringed on some of its patents caused the over two week delay. HTC however handled this by taking the infringing code off the handset’s firmware before they got the green light to ship the smartphone.
For those eyeing the HTC Evo 4G LTE, this handset may be a blessing and by far the finest handset so far on Sprint’s Android-powerd smartphones lineup. It comes with LTE network support which Sprint is rumored to get the green light to go online sometime in this year. Simply put, Sprint subscribers who purchase the HTC Evo will enjoy the LTE network on Sprint when the company finally lights it up!
