Best Buy Stores Will Also Sell EVO 4G LTE’s On June 2nd (Pre-Orders Can Pick It Up Today)

Earlier today it was revealed that, after a brief stint at US Customs, Sprint stores would be stocking their store shelves with HTC EVO 4G LTE’s for a release this Saturday, June 2nd. But what about those of you that pre-ordered the device at a 3rd party retailer like Best Buy? Good news. They’ll be selling them on that same date as well. We got the tip from one of our readers today who works at Best Buy confirming that you can pretty much snag an Evolte from wherever you like.

What’s more, if you’re an existing pre-order, you can actually score the device as early as today in some stores, as leaked in the above internal email. That means if your local Best Buy store hasn’t contacted you yet, feel free to give them a ring and tell them you’re on your way to pick up your LTEvo. If you wait until tomorrow, you’ll be out of luck. Friday, the device will be locked down in stores until the launch on Saturday.

This information could provide even more useful should all the Sprint stores in your area sell out of their stock come Saturday. Cheers, everyone.

Thanks, Jay!
