[Update: Best Buy, Too] EVO 4G’s Marching Into Sprint Stores


With just two days to go until Sprint unleashes the HTC EVO 4G, they’ve unsurprisingly began stacking boxes upon boxes filled with the phones in all their stores. Android Central member BigRick10 caught a glimpse of the army of phones sitting in a backroom just waiting to be distributed to hungry customers this Friday.


They’re claiming that the phones pictured might even be part of a partial shipment intended for just one store: that must be one popular Sprint store if they’ll really need that many phones to keep on hand for June 4th. This could be the reason why Sprint has yet to announce any pre-order details: they’ve probably had a ton of these phones manufactured to ensure everyone can get one this Friday.

[Update]: Best Buy is starting to get their shipments in, as well, and it’s just as plentiful as what Sprint’s getting. Why oh why can’t they just let these go one day early? [thanks, Engadget]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
