Sprint to Release HTC EVO 4G Phone on June 4

Sprint confirmed that it will begin selling HTC's Android-based EVO 4G phone on June 4 for $199.99; mobile hotspot capability for up to eight devices tethered to the phone is priced at $29.99 per month.

The HTC EVO 4G operates in both the 3G network and Sprint's WiMAX network. The handset will also support a new video chat service from Qik. The two-way voice and video capability will be available as an upgrade to the preloaded Qik app on HTC EVO 4G to enable conversational, interactive, real-time sharing between mobile devices or from mobile-to-desktop.

"The EVO 4G experience is much like going from TV to HDTV. But EVO has more than just an impressive list of features -- it is also fun to use with remarkable gaming, video and web-browsing capabilities," said Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO.
