HTC EVO 4G LTE preorders live now, Sprint hints at May 18 release date [Updated]

Evo-4g-lte-email

Following last weekend's preorder countdown clock, HTC EVO 4G LTE orders are live right now on Sprint's dedicated landing site. Additionally, Sprint just sent out reminder emails to anyone who signed up to be updated. The screenshot above was pulled from that email.

Interestingly enough, the fine print at the bottom of the email states that the preorder offer ends 5/17/2012, which is one day before the rumored (and unofficially confirmed) release date of Friday, May 18. This lends even more credence to the possibility that we will have the EVO 4G LTE in our hands in less than two weeks.

A lot of people have already commented on last night's post about EVO 4G LTE preorders, and almost all of them have made the jump and reserved the device for themselves. How about you? If you did, be sure to let us know about your experience doing so below.

Update #1: Sprint is also sending current EVO owners a promotional text about EVO 4G LTE preorders. The text reads: "Pre-order the HTC EVO 4G LTE now! For details on this incredible device and how to pre-order, visit http://sprint.us/evo4g"

Update #2: We have received several reports from readers that Sprint is telling customers phones will ship on May 15 or 16.

 Thanks, Richard, Brett, and Spencer!
