Planning to buy a Sprint HTC EVO 4G? You have to wait for some days as Sprint has once again sold out of its stock of the device, the first smartphone available in the US with WiMAX
The high-end Android OS smartphone debuted this month and has become hugely popular within weeks. The surge in demand has been so high that the device has been in and out of stock on Sprint’s web site very quickly.
The device manufactured by Taiwan-based HTC comes loaded with features, which makes it one of the most advanced phones available today. The smartphone has a 4.3-inch touchscreen, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and 4G cellular-wireless networking. The EVO will soon offer video chatting.
On June 4, the day when the device was launched by Sprint, the carrier sold twice as many EVO 4G units as it had ever sold any previous smartphone in a single day. But the growing demand forced Sprint and HTC to put up the sold-out board. A second shipment arrived after some days but it is also out of stock now.
Sprint has put a message on its website, saying that has becoming familiar to those shopping for this model: “Sorry, this device is so hot we can’t keep it on our virtual shelves. Check back later – more are on their way!” The carrier has stopped accepting pre-orders at this time, and it is still unclear when the next shipment will arrive.
