HTC EVO V 4G Launches on Virgin Mobile

Today is a big day for customers of Virgin Mobile as the HTC EVO V 4G has launched on its new 4G WiMax network.

Earlier this month, Virgin Mobile and select retailers began taking pre-orders for the device in anticipation of the EVO V 4G’s May 31st release date and finally, that day has arrived.

The device is currently in-stock at Radio Shack, however, it appears that Best Buy is still only taking pre-orders and Virgin Mobile’s website hasn’t been updated to reflect the launch.

We’ve also had two readers chime in saying that Radio Shack stores don’t have the phone in-stock at physical retail locations.


A Virgin Mobile spokesperson has told us that the carrier is working on it and that the phone will be coming thorough today. They also noted that the delay does have something to do with the issues that HTC has been having with U.S. Customs but they would not elaborate.

So as of right now, interested parties should head over to Radio Shack and we’ll let you know if we hear anything about stocking shortages.

The EVO V 4G will be running on Virgin Mobile’s 4G WiMax network and it will be the carrier’s version of the HTC EVO 3D.

The EVO V 4G will be powered by a 1730 mAh battery and 1GB RAM, a 1GHz processor, and it will also feature a 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen, a 5MP camera in the rear and a 1.3MP camera in the front, 4GB of memory with an 8GB memory card included, and HDMI.

It will also come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box which means consumers won’t have to endure a long wait for the software upgrade like many other Android owners have had to do.

Those interested will need a data plan though and Virgin Mobile will be offering its $35 unlimited data plan for the EVO V 4G.
