    So I went into the store and to my surprise there was an EVO there unfortunately the sprint rep would not let me take a photo, I tried a couple times but I didn’t wanna press my luck. I got to hold the phone and play a little. He showed us some youtube HQ (but it was 3g so streaming was not as fast) and I got to hold it for about 30 seconds and it felt nice in the hand, its a little heavier than my Hero but I knew that would be. All in all just getting to touch it made me more excited and I am gonna go back today with a buddy to see if he can have the same experience ( kind of feels like I am taking him to a dealer to get him his fix). I will try again to get a photo hopefully the rep won’t be on as high alert.

    Dude....the worst they can do is throw you out...lol. Just disable the shutter sound and the flash, let your buddy hold it, and you pretend to be texting and shoot a couple of shots.

    I have to ask, what city are you in?

    I am in Iowa, I made the mistake of asking if I could take a picture he told me no and was watching me as I tried a few times after that, it was not for a lack of trying ( I just wanted a chance to use it or at least hold it before I got tossed out). My buddy has not seen it yet so we are going to try after work. The idea is I will have the phone up to my ear with my thumb on the track ball and snap off a few attempts we will see. Try what I did I walked into the store asked when they panned on getting them and he said no release date and grabbed a "demo model" he said was being passed around the corporate stores here in town to get familiar with it

    No I get that its hard to belive without a pic and i will try to get one as far as turning the flash off I have a hero should not be a problem at all in fact if you can tell me where to find and how to turn on the flash on my never updated 1.5 android device i would be very thankfull. I get it this is my 4th post and I come in here saying i touched the evo hahaha i would have a hard time beliveing as well. I will say i have been a avid viewer of this site since my pre broke for the 5th time and i got the hero and heard about the EVO.... aside from my rant I will try to get the photo like i said but i have to work and i have kids just got to get back to the store planning on tonight...

    Well since this keeps showing up in stores all over it's obvious the phone is coming out very soon. I highly doubt they would ship the phone a month early to the stores.

    Those phones are probably "Advocate" phones, meaning it's for the Sprint employees designated to be the "expert" on the phone. They get those models early to familiarize themselves with them and to receive training. That's probably the phones we are seeing floating around, not retail models.
