I think you are probably correct but I hope that you are not. As someone else mentioned, Palm built up a lot of hype with the pre at CES and waited too long to launch which seriously hurt their sales in the long run. Then again, HTC isn't a struggling company that invested everything into one phone either.
Exactly what I am hoping for, actually.
I'm more than willing to say goodbye to my Pre and Hello to my Evo 4G!
Kadafy- Same here. Well, I'm hoping that i won't have to stand in line, as HTC seems to have their production figured out where they will have plenty to take care of everyone.
Correct. HTC isn't "hurting" per se, but no company should attempt a head-to-head with the iPhone 4G this summer. Companies should try to capitalize on market lulls and this is the perfect time of year to release devices (Jan - April typically see the most churn rate for cell carriers... Income tax checks come in and people are more willing to pay ETF's to go to another carrier for a certain phone).
I stood in line for my Pre and I will stand in line for this.
You're wrong for ONE simple fact:
iPhone 4G will be available for 3G ONLY.
Evo will be available on 4G/3G.
So if you're in an area with 4G speeds and you want that speed, you have only ONE option: Evo.
There is ONE thing going in Apple's favor here though - the name of their phone is misleading/confusing enough to non-tech savvy people that they're going to believe it'll get 4G speeds.
