    For me, the release date doesn't matter as much as the date that Sprint's LTE becomes available in Los Angeles. Until that date, the EVO 4G LTE might as well be the EVO 3G. Once Sprint DOES activate LTE in LA, though, it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

    pretty sure it'll still be damn fast without LTE, it still uses the S4 whether your connected to LTE or not so i really just don't see why it matters THAT much, you'll still have data through 3g and wifi

    It matters because Sprint's 3G speeds are abysmal here. Until the Network Vision upgrades kick in, the 3G is practically useless to me. I spend 40+ hours a week at work without wifi and in fact use my phone for tethering, so a phone without some working 4G technology does me no good.

    Believe me, I wish I could make do with Sprint's 3G in the meantime, because this phone is going to be killer and I want it ASAP.

    June 10th. That seems to fit Sprint's criteria.

    Oh, yeah. I can confirm that. The Venice/Westchester/Culver City area gets really choppy signal.

    Strangely enough, you actually go to LAX and the 4G Wimax signal is the strongest I've experienced ever (away from a Sprint store)...LOL.

    But, from what I understand, the LTE rollout should be a whole different experience and by the time they're done with Network Vision, Sprint should be better than it ever has been at "it's peak." Quite honestly, part of me is skeptical, but considering that Sprint has the strongest signal out of all the carriers in my neck of the woods (North of Sunset), I really don't plan on changing providers.

    I would love to see Sprint bounce back and really kick some butt. And once they do, I'll gladly buy whatever superphone looks best (which will probably be the LTEvo).

    Here is the problem... Their article originally said the Evo 4G LTE hadn't even passed the FCC yet! Which we know it already did. They also reported that the Sprint landing page/Pre-order place-holding page just went live last night (along with a bunch of other mis-lead media outlets). However that page/a placeholder page has been live since seconds after the phone's announcement...

    The rumors are a flyin' and June 10th is just as much of a rumor as May 18 as far as I am concerned, even if they want to claim insider info and tout they were the first name a launch date and boldly state the phone is "still right on time". They have a pretty darn good site for LTE info and Network Vision rollouts, however this article just feels like they are trying to feather their own cap.

    To add, they were wrong about their "exclusive" release date info on the Viper and Nexus as well. It may have been just a week off, but it was still off.

    Anyone could have guessed April for the Nexus, when we heard about the contest I guessed April as the release date. Same with the Evo, it's usually June so it would be safe to assume it will still be in June as well, but that doesn't mean it will be.

    That is for sure! At lest they got some screen shots of window posters/marketing material along with this one though.

    Not too surprising given that training for the LTEvo has started, yes?

    The new Google - won't always find relevant links even if they're recent.

    I seem to recall that within the last week, there was a story out that gained little attention stating that some sort training - along with promo material introductions - were going out, yes.

    Oh, that's most definitely awesome to see. The faster the superphones are out, the faster I can do a comparison, read reviews, and decide which one I'm choosing.

    I'm not eligible until July, so if the mopho q and sgs 3 are out by then...perfect timing...lol.
