Confirmed: HTC EVO 3D will launch May 31 on Virgin Mobile
Previous rumors regarding a launch of the HTC EVO 3D on prepaid Sprint MVNO Virgin Mobile have now been confirmed. The device will be rebranded the HTC EVO V 4G and take advantage of Virgin Mobile's new 4G Beyond Talk plans.
The prepaid carrier will make use of Sprint and Clearwire's WiMAX network to offer unlimited 4G data, along with unlimited text and 300 voice minutes, all for $35/month. The device will sell for $299.99 with no commitment.
Interestingly enough, Sprint implies in its press release that the EVO V 4G will launch with Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 3.6. Hopefully, this means that Sprint-branded EVO 3D handsets will also receive the update before May 31, as it wouldn't make much sense for Sprint to launch an identical device in its prepaid division with more current software than what's available for post-paid customers. However, Sprint has been known to make decisions in the past that don't make much sense.
In any case, you can read the full press release below.[Sprint]
