I highly doubt sprint anticipated this. I also preordered the evo lte and I can't say I'm happy about the delay, but I can't blame sprint.
I agree but there is always a group of people that is never informed and just read the tittle and just blame it on Srint. The most you can blame is apple and htc but apple is doing this to everyone.
We can blame Apple, The patent process and our lawmakers. It is getting out of hand the silly things that one can patent and sue for these days. America as a litigious society should be discussed and looked at as well.
