Sprint Celebrates New 4G LTE System by Dropping HTC Evo 4G LTE to $0.01

Sprint officially launched their 4G LTE network in the United States last week. They celebrated the launch by dropping the price of their HTC Evo 4G LTE handset to $0.01 on contract at select retailers. This retail price reduction is expected to be a limited time offer, though Sprint did not confirm nor deny that.

HTC Evo 4G LTE android smart phones are one of the first LTE capable handsets. Sprint began to receive these smartphones a couple of months ago.

HTC Evo are the handsets delivering the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 operating system and full range Beats Audio sound system out-of-the-box, while also delivering one of the largest high resolution screens in the entire 4G smartphone marketplace, that handset can finally use all the power of its speedy dual core processor.

The handset delivers Near Field Communications (NFC) support out-of-the-box, and works with apps like Google Wallet to provide wireless retail payment processing at NFC supporting retail outlets. NFC access also allows the Android Beam app to send data, applications and other info wirelessly to other Android Beam devices. Simultaneous image and video capture in 1,080P HD resolution in stereo sound is provided by the rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder, and a front facing 1.3 megapixel chat cam is also present. That rear snapper provides nearly instant image capture in only 0.7 seconds, and an LED flash is built-in, joining the back illuminated sensor (BSI) for low light camera operability.
