We knew it was coming, but we didn’t know when until now. Sprint just let us know that the HTC EVO 4G is arriving on June 4th. I gotta have one.

Pricing is set at $199.99 with new contract (after you get that $100 rebate, anyway), no doubt significantly more without one. The plan they’re pushing for it will be $69.99 plus $10 for “premium data,” making a total of $80 before taxes — that includes unlimited texts and 450 minutes, plus unlimited mobile-to-mobile. In addition to this, you’ll be able to spend $30 extra (joy!) to use your phone as a mobile hotspot for up to 8 people at a time. Makes your plan pretty expensive, but if you’re already shelling out for a mobile dongle, this might actually be a better deal.

When Greg checked it out, he liked it and couldn’t really find anything wrong with it. Check out his initial hands on here.
