Thank you Apple for completely eliminating the thought of ever owning an Apple product out of my mind! I really hope that everyone continues to be patient and waits for the HTC EVO 4G LTE and does not cancel their pre-order. I have been without a phone for over a month just waiting for this phone. Being without a phone has been EXTREMLY difficult for me HOWEVER, the thought and effort that went into creating such an incredible device will be worth the wait. I'm rooting for the underdog! This will be my first HTC product...Sprint and HTC, you have my FULL support!
If this were AA (apple anonymous) I would have to stand in shame and say “Hello my name is Paul, and I was an apple product owner” I am now proud to stand up and say I am no longer addicted to the evil apple empire. I would revert back to a string and a can before I would give the I-Tunes gang another penny of my money. I realize business is business, but dirty tactics and lawyers is a sign of a scared company.
Apple read the headlines, we don’t like bullies that take our lunch money (to listen to a song or watch a movie) and we root for the underdog.
Agreed! I had actually canceled my pre-order on Friday when I got home. Then I spent the weekend looking for a phone to replace it with. The best thing I could find was the Galaxy Nexus, and I bid on one at eBay. I got stingy and decided to let the auction go to someone else. Then I started reading more about the Nexus Saturday night, and although it's a fairly decent phone, it doesn't hold a candle to the Evo IMO. I called back Sprint yesterday and reversed my pre-order. I'm on the waiting list again, and will be patient. Good things come to those who wait!
I thought this was a very interesting quote from many of the articles, this one being from the Focus Taiwan news site which is where HTC comes from.
"We've heard some positive news from HTC's U.S. distributors. Consumer electronics chain Best Buy Co. is going to sell the EVO LTE on May 23, while mobile provider Sprint Nextel Corp. will sell the model on May 25," he told CNA by telephone.
Looks like those who ordered from Best Buy will get it before those who ordered it from Sprint.
BTW, for those wondering what mikeatsprint is quoting, read it here, http://focustaiwan.tw/ShowNews/WebNews_Detail.aspx?Type=aECO&ID=201205210005.
In a nutshell, a quote from the Focus Taiwan site says Best Buy will be getting it on the 23rd and Sprint the 25th.
I think that is wishful thinking, there is NO WAY Best Buy would get a phone designed for Sprint before Sprint. That tends to make me NOT believe the article. I will not get my hopes up until I see and official annoucement from Sprint or a Tracking number.
