HTC EVO 4G LTE will hit Sprint stores June 2nd

The day has finally come for those who haven’t pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE. After a brief delay at US Customs, and with yesterday’s news that all HTC devices have passed inspection, Sprint confirmed they’d be getting shipments within a few days’ time. That estimation seems to have been correct as they’ve officially announced a June 2nd date for its arrival. That date falls on a Saturday so you guys should have plenty of time to get dirty with it over the weekend.

For $200 on contract, you’re getting a 4.7 inch device that trumps almost every phone in the ranks of the Now Network. It has a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, a beautiful 8MP HD camera, Android 4.0 with Sense 4.0 and a lot more. Be sure to call your local Sprint stores to confirm availability once the day arrives. [Sprint via AndroidForums.com]

    It doesn’t beat my E4GT in download speed. T_T

    Hope y’all enjoying that .5Mb/s 3G. Think I’ll wait on anything “LTE” until Sprint releases it and spreads it.

    And what ever happened with Sprint upping their 3G speeds? Still hasn’t hit Houston yet?

      What’s that you’re babbling about with Sprint 3G speeds?

      Edit: While we’re at it, would you like to discuss WiMax Speeds as well?

      http://twitpic.com/9re6uk

      Both speed tests ran on my Epic 4G Touch, in different cities, none the less. Both utilizing the Atlanta servers for Speedtest.net’s app.

        I’ve come to the conclusion that a majority of people just love to complain for the sole sake of complaining, plus they believe that because they have issues, everyone has issues. It’s probably one of the dumbest thought processes I have ever encountered.

        • malcmilli

          I also think its, the majority of the people might have horrible speeds. You just happen to be one of the lucky ones Mr Stream.

          • NYCHitman1

            Be that as it may, I am not the only lucky one. There are thousands, if not millions who are just like me. While the network is in transition, it would be wise to expect some dark days in terms of poor data speeds. The Stream lives onnnnnnn!

        Now are you done standing in that random area of town?

        When I “do” get WiMax, I average 5Mb-10Mb speeds.
        When I get 3G I average .5Mb-1Mb speeds. These are “my” averages around Houston. I test in different areas of Houston and these are my results. I’m comparing my results to Tmo. When I had Tmo, my average speeds were 3Mb-7Mb all the time. My 2G on Tmo was .5Mb. See what I’m doing there? Sprint’s “3G” is compared to Tmo’s 2G.
        Yes. I have gotten those speeds before. I was also driving past the Memorial Hospital area of Houston.
        Oh, and to throw something out there, at my house I roam. I walk across the street to the gas station and I have full 3G maxed out speeds, full 4G maxed out speeds. Care to explain that? And I’m not being sarcastic about that last question.

        Yes, if you go to Houston you will get those speeds, but are those speeds around houses or buildings? I’ve only been to one house where I actually get 4G faster than 7Mb speeds. Other than that, I’m averaging 3Mb speeds 4G at someone’s house.

        I go to Wal-Mart, oh look I have 4G. T_T

          Standing in that random area of town? I’ve been in and outside of Atlanta getting those speeds constantly. The farther away from Atlanta you go, the farther away you go from the 4G network. I get a rogue 4G network signal on the other side of town where I live at, 40 miles east of Atlanta, and it still turns 5-6Mbps in buildings. When I’m closer to Atlanta, about 12 miles out, in school, I get decent 4G signal and average 4-6Mbps, on the 3rd floor of a 7 floor building.

          I’ll be the first to admit that Sprint’s coverage isn’t the best, but I’ve never complained because they don’t charge for roaming. Where I live now I get a decent 3G signal. You have to consider that Sprint is not the size of AT&T or Verizon. AT&T has the advantage of having the extra income from non-mobile services to help expand their network. I agree, GSM 3G is faster, but every phone they offer can’t utilize that bump in speeds. You have EVDO Rev. A on CDMA as the primary 3G source. On GSM, you have HSPA+ on levels of 3.6, 7.2, 10.1, 14.4, and 21Mbps. The majority of phones on GSM 3G run on 3.6 and those speeds average to 1-1.8Mbps in real world applications. T-Mobile and AT&T both considered 14.4 and up to be “4G” before they even considered building out their LTE networks, so that argument for their 3G being considerably faster is essentially null and void. They may have slightly faster speeds on 3G, but they surely don’t leave anyone in the dust.

          • No_Nickname90

            My complaint is when I had Tmo, my average speeds were 5Mb+ faster than Sprint’s. On average. The highest I’ve ever reached on Tmo was 7Mb. The highest on Sprint was 14Mb. This was all while in Houston. Everything you pointed out seems pretty interesting.

            The thing I’m pointing out is my average speeds. Moving around Houston I just average higher speeds on Tmo.

            You’re saying that you’re averaging 2Mb+ speeds all the time, right? That’s good news. I’m hoping to get some of that with Sprint as well. As of right now, Sprint’s 3G is not all that reliable. It’s compared to Tmo’s 2G.

            Oh, and I never said anything about AT&T and Verizon. Of course there stuff would be good. BTW, I actually witnessed AT&T service when I had Tmo, and it was nothing. My friend ALWAYS had to tether off my G2. LoL!! But that’s for another story.

            I still don’t know anything about this dead spot at my house, and when I walk across the street get full service, but I’ll just wait it out. From what you’re saying, you’re getting good service, so I’m sure I’ll be close to follow. I did notice that I don’t roam anymore at home. I may have low bars, but it’s a start.

        one person with good data speeds doesn’t prove a statement false. There are those who perform very decently, but its the majority who do get .5 mbps downloads. i for one have been getting as low as .02 (yes .02!) mbps and as high as .7 mbps but i generally average about .4-.5 mbps here in NYC. My Wimax used to be 12mbps but now is down to 1.5 mbps or so.

          I’d like to see a study that proves a majority of Sprint customers, with smartphones, gripe and complain about their data speeds being slow. That majority must be from every market Sprint serves and taps both 3G and WiMax 4G. I highly doubt you’d find a majority who complains because a lot of customers are satisfied with having unlimited data, regardless, and also understand that the network is a little dated, but is slowly being upgraded to bring faster speeds. Not everyone will get LTE, but most everyone should get enhancements to 3G in their areas bringing speed upgrades.

          • malcmilli

            Lol I would like to see one too, but your statements seem to be biased towards tech blog viewers. Most ppl do not know sprint is upgrading, most ppl don’t even know what lte is. They even made a Saturday night live skit about how cell phone carrier commercial jargon makes no sense to most people. Also sprint has a reputation of being slow, reputations generally aren’t created by only one or two ppl.

  • toomuchgame441

    Well that’s good, I’ll get it when LTE is live in the ATL which should hopefully be sometime in June

  • Canon User

    Pre-orderers have had it for a week. It’s an awesome phone, LTE or no LTE.

  • Adam

    Grr what about the droid incredible 4g LTE???

  • Xiaolin

    Can it be rooted?

  • Alan Ramos

    Thank god i preordered mine…i wouldnt’ve been able to wait

  • avengers

    Will it blend!
