Well... its been announced, but the release date has not been... didnt the same thing happen to the nexus 4g?....
Also, consider this... The evo 4G is 199. If the Evo 3d is 199 when it is released, all of the people up to the 3D release date have paid $200 for a year old phone. The average consumer doesn't look at phones every day. The average consumer sees the most expensive phone and assumes it is the best, and will be the best for awhile. I would imagine that there is a price cut on the 4G the day that the 3D comes out and not a day sooner so that sprint can make that extra $$ in the meantime and then take a small (if any) loss on the 4g when they clear it out for the 3D. Furthermore if one of those average consumers sees the 3D in the store after they buy their 4G, they will see it as the same $200 "HTC EVO-Phone" that they own....
Just my two pennies

I'll post here the same thing I posted on the XDA forums...
I'm as excited as anyone, but does nobody else read "rough" as meaning "this is our best guess"?
This is RadioShack after all, and as it says on the very same screen, they have absolutely no pricing info. I simply see this as a RadioShack manager optimistically entering the date in since it's the anniversary of the Evo 4G and the release is clearly relatively soon.
Hopefully I'm wrong, but I'm not getting my hopes up...

Either way I am hoping this thing is soon.....got me to go do my preorder today!
Radio Shack should be great.
If this thing is $200 after instant rebates from upgrade...
I hope to get somewhere between 100-150 to trade in the EVO....phone will barely cost anything. Awesome deal!

Edit: I just tried to "buy" one on Walmart's website. For my zip in Cen TX, I can get the EVO4G for a cool 100!

Also, the ending/beginning of each instant rebate period has seemed to correspond to major phone releases.
