It was a sad day back in July when we reported that the HTC EVO 4G would be reaching its EOL (end of life) status this fall. We are sad to report that the day has now come in which we must finally say "goodbye" to the white EVO 4G.
According to the updated EOL list leaked by Sprint Feed below, the week of 9/18 (that's this week) is the last week that the white EVO 4G will be ordered by retail stores. This means that once existing inventory is sold out, that's that.
The original black EVO 4G is still on schedule to be offed sometime in early October, although exact dates have still not yet been released.
The EVO 4G has the distinction of holding many firsts: the first 4G phone, the first phone with a built-in kickstand, and the first Android 2.1 phone (other than Google's own Nexus) to receive an official update to Android 2.2 (Froyo) in the summer of 2010.
However, as we mourn the loss of one of the most innovative consumer devices to come to market, we look forward at what else Sprint and HTC have up their sleeves for the coming years.Sprint Feed]
