Amazon Offers the HTC Evo 4G LTE for $130
Customers interesting in picking up the HTC Evo 4G LTE smartphone can do so through Amazon.com for a discounted price of $130.
This is $70 less than its original price on Sprint when it launched less than a month ago.
The offer is valid for new Sprint subscribers, and for those looking to upgrade to the HTC Evo 4G LTE on the carrier, the site is selling the device for $150.
Amazon frequently sells smartphones for discounted prices and this deal on the HTC Evo 4G LTE is a steal.
Specifications on the handset include a 4.7-inch HD Super IPS LCD2 touchscreen with 720x1280 pixels, Gorilla Glass protection, microSD slot, 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel front camera, a 1.3-megapixel front shooter, Android 4.0.3, Ice Cream Sandwich, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and Beats by Dre audio.
The Evo 4G LTE is the first HD voice-capable smartphone to be released in the U.S.
HD voice technology allows users to experience a deeper clarity and better audio experience in VoIP communications with the use of wideband technology. In other words, the sound on a phone call will be significantly clearer and have a higher quality level overall compared to most of the current devices on the market.
HTC ImageSense technology also adds a competitive edge to the EVO 4G LTE's camera making it the finest for photography in the smartphone market.
The smartphone's release allowed for Sprint to become the first carrier in the U.S. to announce plans for a nationwide HD Voice network that will launch in the latter end of 2012.
"Sprint has a long history of leading the wireless industry in innovation, and the debut of HTC Evo 4G LTE marks another chapter in that innovation story," said Sprint CEO Dan Hesse. "Once again, we are partnering with HTC to deliver the benchmark Android device for the year with the next generation of our award-winning EVO brand."
