I love my HTV EVO 3D (except for battery life). Now that the HTC EVO LTE is coming this Friday, who has pre-ordered? I know basically LTE is non-existent, but it's promising. The phone itself looks beautiful and the fact that the kickstand is back (seems so minuscule) it is a welcome re-addition.

However I am gonna wait, I'm a sucker for the "get this shiny new <whatever>" and decided to wait until LTE is more mature on Sprint. I like what I am hearing is that LTE is going to be about 3x at least better than 4G speeds on Sprint and that it will have better building penetration. If LTE was available in Charlotte and Atlanta, and New York *now* bet you I would be getting it just to use it as a hot spot...

Anyway, hoping you early adopters can share your experience and I can live vicariously through you

I have always liked those nifty little kickstands, I wish my SGS2 had one.

I was leaning strongly toward getting one, but Sprint doesn't offer LTE here yet, and the 4G LTE has no 4G WiMax functionality.
EVDO works, but isn't really an attractive alternative.
I think I will wait for LTE to be introduced to the area.

I think it's a hard still for those of us currently enjoying sprints Wimax service. There's little reason for it's to immediately upgrade. I'll probably skip this round and edit for lte later this year.

I'm waiting for LTE period.....Sprint's network is going through a massive overhaul called "Network Vision" pretty much rebuilding the Network while Killing the Nextel iDen network...And we're in the middle of this process right now on the East Coast and I can see the degrading in the Network Quality as its being replaced...

So I will wait for the new Network Vision/LTE to be complete in NYC before I upgrade. I'm hearing NYC metro (5 Boroughs, North and Central Jersey, Westchester, LI and Downstate CT) will be completed around OCT in time for the iPhone 5 launch.

By that time I will decide....EVO, GSIII, iPhone 5.....I'm probably going to stay in the Android camp since i carry both an iPod and iPad.

wow! I didn't know this, I thought if LTE wasn't available it would do plain old 4G?!? That stinks!

I have the Evo for two years and love the kickstand. I am ready for an upgrade and trying to decide whether to go with the upgraded and updated Evo 4G Lte or try the Samsung Galaxy S3. I am used to the Evo and all it has to offer but of course the S3 is a true competitor.
