If you want to be the first to own a sweet, new Android smartphone before all of your friends, you can always count on eBay. It seems that many HTC EVO 4G (Sprint) handsets, given out for free to attendees at the recent Google I/O conference, are being auctioned on eBay – almost two weeks before the official release date of June 4. Most are being sold, as in completed auctions, in the $400-700 range. Aside from the opportunity to grab the highly anticipated CDMA device early without any contract obligations, it appears that these particular devices from the Google event come with free service until June 20.
Bid at your own risk, as it’s the perfect time for scammers to try and win potential buyers over with their clever tactics. If you’re thinking of taking the plunge, it’s best to look at sellers with perfect feedback and high sales numbers.
