I'd have to say that I'm going to be optimistic and say they will continue to give out updates or the users who still have Evos will make an uproar causing them to release more updates such as new Android versions. I can say that Sprint will let out updates that will fix hardware/firmware issues if they arise.
Haha. The Sprint Samsung Moment was released in November of 2009 and got the Android 2.1 update in May of 2010 and might have had a maintenance update or two in between that time. They did support it for a while, but to a lesser extent than the Sprint HTC Hero. I would agree it is because it was not as popular of a handset compared to the Sprint HTC Hero.

The bottom line is that I think Sprint and HTC are being a bit more proactive with their new handsets. They seem to be supporting them a bit longer now, and that is especially true with the popular ones.
