There’s almost no disputing that the HTC EVO 4G LTE is one of the greatest devices Android has to offer, and one Sprint is no doubt banking on. You may remember back when Sprint officially announced the availability of the HTC EVO 4G LTE on their network, but failed to give a solid launch date other than “Q2″ of this year. After the HTC EVO 3D, and the HTC EVO 4G before it both releasing during the month of June, most of us were expecting Sprint to stick with that traditional release date.
Well, we’re now hearing that Sprint may be pushing up that date, launching the device a month early — May 18th to be exact — if sources over at PhoneDog are to be believed. This release date doesn’t sound too far fetched although you would think Sprint would want this device to launch a little closer to the release date of the original EVO, seeing how those customers will be due for an upgrade by then.
Friday, May 18th, also happens to be the very same day the LG Optimus Elite will arrive in Sprint retails stores. Looks like Sprint is planning for a big summer with the Galaxy Nexus and LG Viper all launching within weeks of each other. Which will you guys pick?
