If the Galaxy Nexus and LG Viper didn’t quite ring your bell, then perhaps Sprint’s next LTE-ready smartphone may be in your sights. The HTC EVO 4G LTE is now available for pre-order at a price of $199 and seeing how these things tend to sell out, we suggestion you hightail it over to Sprint’s website to secure one of these bad boys if you’re truly interested. As for exactly when Sprint will change EVO 4G LTE orders from pre to purchase, remains unknown, but word around the campfire is that the Now Network’s new flagship is expected to officially launch on May 18th. So, if you’re an EVO enthusiast that elected to forego the EVO 3D in hopes of something bigger and better, hopefully this kickstand sporting kingpin will be all yours in less than a fortnight.
