It's June 4, which means that this is the official launch day of the much-awaited HTC Evo 4G. If you want to avoid the mobs, head over to Sprint's online store where this bad boy is waiting to be bought.
The Android 2.1-powered handset is available for $199.99, after $150 instant savings plus the $100 mail-in rebate. This all rests upon signing a two-year service contract.
Hype like this for a smartphone is rarely seen, unless it happens to be made by Apple. It's refreshing to seem some healthy competition and excitement for something else.
According to CNET, Radio Shack is even opening early at select locations to help customers who pre-ordered the Evo 4G, with a few set aside for some walk-ins. Check your local Radio Shack listings to be sure, but the doors open at these location at 6 AM local time, so start getting ready!
