Sprint set to launch HTC EVO 4G on June 4

HTC Evo 4G from Sprint

Remember when there was such a big deal about the launch of nationwide 3G networks and how it promised all sorts of crazy wireless data speeds? We’re in the middle of a similar revolution, because America’s first 4G phone will be made available to the masses early next month. The HTC EVO 4G stays true to its name for Sprint, bring super fast 4G connectivity in the form of a touchscreen smartphone. We’ve seen 4G data devices, but this is the first phone for the US with 4G ready to go.

Running our way through the features, we find dual cameras, video chat capabilities, HDTV output, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Wi-Fi, HD capture, 4.3-inch touchscreen, Android 2.1, and Adobe Flash support. Yes, it plays friendly with Flash (take that, Apple). Set to hit all the usual retail channels on June 4, the HTC EVO 4G from Sprint costs $199.99 with a two-year contract and a $100 mail-in rebate. Add in the mobile hotspot capability for $29.99 more each month and you won’t need that MiFi thing anymore either.

Now that the 4G smartphone cherry has been popped, what other options are coming down the pipe?
