Radio Shack is well on its way towards getting ready for the HTC EVO 3D launch on Sprint, revealing the smartphone’s pricing in one of its advertisements. If you’d rather get your Android straight from the carrier, Sprint is happy to oblige, with the company opening pre-orders for the smartphone, even with no release date revealed.
Not only does Sprint not have a date for any potential EVO 3D customers, it’s also not letting slip the phone’s pricing. We can assume that it will stick pretty close to the numbers we’ve seen at Radio Shack, placing the EVO 3D at around $200 on-contract and $500 flying solo. If that uncertainty doesn’t dissuade you, Sprint will be happy to take your $50, reserve you a handset, and give you a gift card to be redeemed towards that future purchase.
You might not have that long to wait for a pre-order to materialise into an actual phone, since we’ve heard rumors that the EVO 3D could be arriving in the States in early June. Of course, what smartphone release would be complete without a couple false starts and rumored release dates that come and pass, so don’t go an reserve an EVO 3D expecting it to definitely arrive within a couple weeks.
