Sprint is readying for the release of the HTC EVO 4G LTE, and today it moves a step closer to release. Starting today, you can pre-order yourself an EVO 4G LTE for $199.99 (or you can get it for $149.99 from Wirefly) with two-year contract. If you're not eligible for an upgrade, the cost shoots up to $549. Unfortunately, Sprint's LTE network has yet to go live, so the phone will likely be a 3G affair at launch. Disappointing, but, hey, when LTE is lit up on the Now Network, the phone will be ready on day one. Wirefly says the Ice Cream Sandwich device should ship on May 18th.
AT&T will finally be graced with a phone featuring Beats Audio by Dr. Dre. The HTC One X is set to hit store selves within a few months. The phone features a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED 720p high definition display, alongside an 8-megapixel camera and running HTC’s Sense 4 running atop Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The superphone is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor. The only downside to the AT&T version of the smartphone is that it is a dual-core processor rather than a quad-core. United States buyer will be losing two cores to accommodate for a 4G LTE radio. But hey, we’re not complaining. For those in want of the quad-core model, you can always import one from Europe, we guess.
