    Oh Sprint, you never cease to amaze me. After 5 months of waiting, you're going to release a Windows Phone 7 device. However, you're pricing it the same as the HTC Evo 4G. Do you hate Microsoft that badly, that you're only launching one device and then pricing it so that people will go to Android instead? Come on, give an OS a chance!

    4g and front facing camera make this a no-go

  • i personally dont care if it has 4g or not cause the number of times i use it doesnt matter

      i thought to until it came to where i live, and i used it on my brothers evo. Let me tell you man its freaking awesome.

  • Arya

    No, I was really excited for this device but the lack of 4g is a deal breaker.

    It looks like we'll have to shell out $300 to get one of these baby's first and then wait for a rebate back. That seems pretty steep these days.
