HTC EVO 3D is missing from Sprint’s site [Updated]

Missing-evo-3d

For some reason, the HTC EVO 3D is no where to be found on Sprint's website. When searching for smartphones, and narrowing down choices by operating system (Android) and manufactuer (HTC), you'll get the above two choices: the EVO Design 4G and a refurbished Hero.

So what's going on here?

To be honest, I'm not quite sure. The EVO 3D didn't appear on the most recent internal EOL (end of life) list that we saw from Sprint, although the white EVO 3D was killed off back in March.

Here's one interesting possibility that's being tossed around: Since Sprint is gearing up for an imminent EVO 4G LTE launch, maybe the company has given the rest of its inventory to Virgin Mobile. Given those recent rumors that Virgin Mobile would pick up the EVO 3D and rebrand it as the EVO V 4G, this definitely seems possible.

So what do you think? Is this an innocent mistake, or is something else up?

Update: According to a Sprint spokesperson, "The award-winning HTC EVO 3D is no longer available through Sprint.com. Quantities are limited, but customer can still get HTC EVO 3D at Sprint Stores nationwide."
