    Radio Shack stores getting WiMAX upgrades ahead of Evo launch? -- Engadget

    From Endgadge...

    While there's certainly plenty to love about HTC's EVO 4G, that 4G in the title is certainly one of the major draws. We're guessing it'll be a little easier to sell the things if customers can experience the wonders of WiMAX for themselves, so that's probably why RadioShack is (according to our tipster) installing these Clearwire WiMAX repeaters in at least some of its stores ahead of the May 30 launch of the phone there. This will effectively turn The Shack into 4G hotspots and, while we're not sure of the range of these bad boys, this is a good thing even if it extends the reach of WiMAX just a few feet further into our lives. Another picture after the break.

    May 30th = 93'rd running of the Indianapolis 500. That's the one day of the year I won't cancel my plans to pick up an EVO.

    Saw that too, but in the store yesterday the guy said I would have the 4th and 5th to pick it up. Boy I hope it goes on the 30th!

    Hold up, I just thought about this for a min! That would be the day before Memorial Day, SUNDAY....hmm, double edged sword right there. Can be good because people are off from work, and then have ALL DAY MONDAY TO PLAY WITH THERE EVO. However I wont believe it until the Shack calls me and says come and get it....FYI...I don't know about Sprint, but Verizon has done some pretty big phone launches on Sundays! All I can say is that this would be GREAT!

    Yeah I don't think they are going to release the phone on a Sunday.
