As Sprint prepares to release several new devices, it appears that a select few have reached the end of their rope. Sprint’s latest End-of-Life (EOL) listing reveals that the Now Network plans on doing away with a few feature phones, but most notably are the listings for the HTC EVO 4G (black), LG Marquee and LG Optimus S (purple). We’ve seen the original HTC EVO 4G on this list for quite a while, but it’s always managed to be delayed due to its popularity. But with a true successor finally on its way, it looks like this oldie but goody is finally ready to retire.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with EOL lists, it basically means that a carrier is stopping orders on hardware for the listed devices in order to make room for new products. Once the carrier exhausts its current inventory, its retail locations will only support product replacements. Should that stock run out, the carrier may possibly offer comparable replacements in the event of an insurance claim. These ill-fated devices are expected to slow down later this month.
