We last reported about the HTC EVO 4G LTE on Sprint when the pre-order page for the phone went live, though going through with the order wasn’t possible back then. Guess what, the carrier now…
Looks like HTC has done a pretty good job of dealing with the import bans of the HTC EVO 4G LTE and HTC One X, a major annoyance that has delayed the shipments of the HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint customers.
After HTC announced that the problem has been partially resolved, it didn’t take long for Sprint to update its website and inform customers who have pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE that the kickstand-equipped phone will arrive on their doorsteps on or around May 24.
The carrier stopped short of announcing a new date for the nationwide availability of the EVO 4G LTE in retail stores, but we wouldn’t be too surprised to see more announcements coming from Sprint later this week about the full launch. It appears that, for now, Sprint only has enough supplies to fill the pre-orders quota.
If you had a change of heart over the last couple of days about buying the delayed EVO, you won't be able to cancel your pre-order anymore with a full refund. You can still, however, go through the standard return routes. But surely the HTC EVO 4G LTE is worth waiting for another couple of days?
Once again, kudos to HTC and Sprint for getting things back to order in less than a week. As for those who will be receiving their HTC EVO 4G LTE soon in all of its “4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 display, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 16GB internal storage, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, micro SD card slot, and kickstand” glory — happy playing with your shiny new toy!
