Luckily for us, Sprint higher-ups are so eager about the launch date of the HTC Evo 4G that they can’t keep their mouths shut! The latest watercooler talk comes to us via Engadget whose source claims that a June 13th date is becoming more and more likely – previously, we’ve only heard about a strong June 6th release.
Obviously we want this thing to come out as soon as it can but June 13th is still technically early June (and nothing has been promised to us anyway).
Some more plan information is making its rounds, as well. Sources suggest that 4G will only be available to those with a special 4G data plan supplement – think $10-20$ add-on. It’s sad to see that it won’t come standard with existing EV-DO plans as we once thought, but everything is still up in the air. Rumor stamp approved.
[UPDATE]: Looks like we misunderstood the context of the 4G pricing information. Confirmed by you guys in the comments, 4G pricing for handsets will indeed remain bundled in current EV-DO plans. The $10-$20 add-on suggests a scenario when you use 4G solely as a hotspot for other devices (a netbook or tablet). Sorry for the mix-up, guys!
