HTC EVO 4G

The HTC EVO 3D will finally launch next Friday, June 24th, but if you're just not feeling the look and feel of the new EVO or can't live without a built-in kickstand, we've learned that Sprint will be also dropping the price of the HTC EVO 4G on the same date. The EVO 4G's newly-discounted price will be set at just $99 with a new two-year contract and will be available at Sprint's corporate locations and preferred retailers.

Although the EVO 4G is beginning to get a little long in the tooth, at least in the mobile world, $99 is a tough price to beat for a 4.3-inch WiMAX Android phone that's still sitting in our list of top Sprint smartphones over a year after launch. The EVO 4G was also just updated to Gingerbread, which is more than most other Android phones on the market can say. So, anyone thinking about snagging the original EVO on the cheap or recommending it to a friend or family member?
