Virgin Mobile isn’t the only prepaid brand associated with Sprint that’s getting ready to launch its own ’4G’ smartphones on Sprint’s WiMax network. Boost Mobile is in on the action too. As such, the HTC Evo Design 4G will arrive at Boost on May 31.
We’ve heard once before that this would happen, and now it’s official. Sprint probably doesn’t want its WiMax airwaves go unused once it successfully transitions to LTE, so it’s pumping its prepaid brands full of 4G.
The HTC Evo Design 4G that will land at Boost Mobile is the exact same device that’s been launched by Sprint last year. However, it will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from day one.
It will cost $299.99 (without taxes), and there’s obviously no contract requirement. That’s the same price that Virgin Mobile’s HTC Evo V 4G is going to go for, and the two handsets are even going to be out on the same day (no coincidence there).
The HTC Evo Design 4G has a 4-inch 540×960 touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz single-core processor, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash and video recording, and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera.
