    It would be great if this turns out to be true. Wish it didn't have the "rough date" wiggle room, but I'll certainly take this over nothing.

    I could kinda read it and it was an email to a radio shack mobile employee for a heads up on June 4th release of the EVO 3D.

    Is there a method to their release? It seems strange to me that it would be released at the end of the week.

    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....

    That does make sense. Last year there were no decent hero phones on Sprint, besides the Palm Pre and noone liked it, most people, except the die hards from Pre Central hated it. I used to love the Pre until I had to use it on a daily basis. Either way, Sprint had incentive to tell the world as soon as possible when the Evo 4G is coming out since noone gave a rats butt about the Pre anyways. There also was no Nexus 4G....there was the Pre, and the Hero...and the Instinct HD....yawn! This year is a bit more complicated and I guess Sprint is trying to reduce the stock of Evos as much as possible and give the Nexus S a fighting chance for all the vanilla Android fans out there.

    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...

    I have heard June 8th from two different Sprint people now, one who owns a non corporate store. So the 4th must be the "rough" launch and the 8th is the official launch?

    Or maybe the manager reads AndroidCentral and gave his employees a heads-up from what he saw in the forums, since most people are guessing between the 3 and 8 of june.

    Just my 2 cents.

    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!

    :
    Although I can't confirm it personally (and BB strangley does not have 4G or Shift on their website), it has been reported on other forums that EVO4G has been going for 149 at BB. One theory I had heard FWIW, was the price point for 3VO would be 199, EVO4G 149 and the Shift would drop to 100. Again heresay, but not out of the realms of possiblity! My 11/4 cents worth.

    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!

    Well 6/4 is the last day they're not doing mail-in rebates so I bet they'll do an instant savings thing.

    The guy at my Sprint store actually said the opposite. He was assuming it would come out around the 8th as well because he didn't think Sprint would want to give out instant rebates for the phone. It's a compelling argument either way.

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

    The EVO 3D for all intents and purposes is the replacement for the EVO 4G. I expect to see the 4G drop down to $99.00 when the 3D is released.
