Uh-oh. It seems that HTC have gotten a little carried away with creating lustable phones, with another of their flagship phones suffering from shortages.

Demand for Sprint’s larger-than-life EVO 4G has outstripped supply, with the phone now being listed as delayed without a shipping date.

The shortage is being blamed on Samsung’s inability to produce enough touch-screens — the same reason behind the delay in Verizon’s Droid Incredible.

This has upset Sprint CEO Dan Hesse, who said in the Wall Street Journal “we thought we would have more of a head start than we’ll end up having”, regarding Sprint’s move into the world of 4G.

The really bad news? Samsung won’t be able to keep up with demand until they finish their new display factory in 2012. That’s right, you can expect phone delays from now until the apocalypse.
