Best Buy is sending emails to customers who preordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE through them that a new release date has been set: Wednesday, May 23. One G&E reader was kind enough to actually forward us the full email he received, which appears above, and others have confirmed receiving this same email, as well.
Additionally, we are hearing that Sprint is planning to ship out their preorders prior to the new May 23 release date, although the exact shipping date hasn't yet been determined. According to what we've heard, there are several factors that could potentially cause the May 23 date to change, so don't consider this to be set in stone quite yet.
In any case, things are looking up, as it seems the EVO 4G LTE will only be delayed by a few days. Make sure to check back throughout the day in case we have any more updates to share with you.[Inside Sprint Now] Thanks fachadick, Chris, and all who sent this in!
