Sprint HTC EVO 4G Now Available

The HTC EVO 4G is available at Sprint retail sotres, Walmart, Best Buy, RadioShack and Sprint.com starting to day. The EVO is the first 4G phone available in the U.S. and is getting a lot of people excited.  The EVO 4G is selling for $199.99 after rebate with a two-year contract.

The HTC EVO has dual cameras and runs on Sprint’s 4G network, making it possible to video chat with friends. It comes pre-loaded with Qik Video Chat, which does look pretty cool assuming you have friends with similarly equipped devices.

Early reviews have dinged the EVO 4G for lackluster battery life, but that seems to be the norm these days with media-centric smartphones.

update: Josh Smith put together an EVO 4G review roundup and more details about it over at Notebooks.com.
