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!

    the excitement about a phone that can't be used because of a horrible battery life (see techcrunch, gizmodo and engagdet reviews). what's the idea of having all those features in a package that doesn't work? empty bullet points on a feature list that only make a geek happy?

      hmm, so far posts from people that have actually been using the phone says the battery life will get them thru the day. That is about all you can ask for most smart phones.

  • I love it

    I got mine at 8am this morning at the local sprint store and I love it. The call quality is better, the service strength is stronger and it works perfectly. I am surprised by how impressive this thing is. I sit at a desk all day so I can plug it in and negate any battery issues. So far so good.

    Major problem with EVO the phone is not a hands free unit. Android 2.1 does not support hands free use with a bluetooth. You can answer a call, speak and end a call using your bluetooth, but you can not have the phone make a call for you thru your bluetooth. You must physically hold the phone in close proximity to your mouth, access voice dial then speak the name or number into the phone. Every phone I have had in the past has had this capabilty, had I known the EVO lacked this very basic function I surely would not have purchased it.
