Sprint quietly taking HTC EVO 3D preorders


Not to be outdone by Best Buy's covert HTC EVO 3D pre-sale, Sprint is now letting you reserve the new phone in exchange for the purchase of a $50 gift card that can then be applied to the total on launch day. All you have to do is ask.

The "deposit" will get your name and number on an unadvertised wait list (I was the first one on it at my local Sprint store), which generally guarantees that you'll get the device the day it's released. Exactly when that day is is still up for debate, but the rep I spoke to this afternoon said that those on the list will either be called the day before the phone arrives or the morning it goes on sale. So if you're hoping to find out when the big day is before anyone else, preordering from Sprint probably isn't the way to go.

I have a preorder in at Best Buy too and am thinking that I might just buy two of them on launch day. G&E needs to give away a phone at least once, right?

Thanks, Alex!
