From today, several areas of California, along with Florida, Delaware and Michigan are able to receive Sprint's 4G service. Anyone for an EVO 4G?
Google may've let Froyo out of the bag, but until the networks and manufacturers release it that won't mean anything to those ready to kick Android 2.1 to the curb. Sprint and Motorola's (rough/unconfirmed) plans are detailed below. UPDATE
Scroll any number of Android forums, and there seems to be a fair few HTC EVO 4G screens separating from the device. It's surprising news as HTC's build quality tends to be exemplary, but you just can't ignore these stories.
Sprint initially said the EVO 4G sold more devices in one day than the Palm Pre and Samsung Instinct did in three days combined, but they've now stated "we inadvertently erred in the comparison," with an analyst slashing his estimation of EVO sales from 300,000 to 150,000 for the launch weekend.

News just in—the HTC EVO 4G has officially been more loved on launch day than the Palm Pre. While queues were around the block for many Sprint stores selling the webOS phone last June, it wasn't any match for the HTC EVO 4G. Friday saw the most sales for any one phone sold at Sprint in one day—in fact, there were…
That HTC Evo 4G looks to be one monster of a phone. It's got essentially everything us serious nerds are always clamoring for, and it's the first WiMax phone to boot. So, do you want one or what?
You know that scene in Iron Man 2, where Justin Hammer asks Rhodey which weapons he wants inside War Machine—and Rhodey says "all of them"? That's exactly how the Evo 4G was born. Somebody said "everything."
Honestly, my eyes felt a little moist while watching the ad below. If you haven't seen it yet, you're in for a treat. Boasting of selling the first 4G phone, the ad shows all of history's other "firsts."
Even though the HTC EVO 4G has not been officially released to the public just yet, the exhaustively covered Android 2.2 "Froyo" OS has already been ported to it thanks to efforts by the folks at XDA. Plus, video!
11 days before the EVO 4G launches exclusively on Sprint, and hackers have already successfully rooted the phone. Video showing their finesse after the jump.
Ginormous. That's the EVO 4G in a word. The 4.3-inch screen. The 8-megapixel-photo, 720p-video-recording camera. It's the first ever phone with superfast WiMax wireless. It has a kickstand. Like I said, huge.
June 6th has been pointed at again for Sprint's HTC EVO 4G launch, with a crafty customer at RadioShack grabbing some fliers from a branch and being told of the contract prices. $600 out of contract? Steep, but worth it.
Rumor is that HTC's EVO 4G will be coming to Sprint on either June 6 or June 13—though supposedly Sunday the 13th is being favored. There's also talk of an additional $10-20 monthly charge for the 4G service.
It's official: Sprint's first WiMax/4G phone is everything we hoped it would be. The HTC Evo combines the "perfect specimen" hardware of the Touch HD2, the Sense-on-Android smoothness of the Legend, and unprecedented download speeds. It's a beast. UPDATED: Hands on!
