HTC EVO 4G pricing gets official at $199.99

I mentioned a few days ago that RadioShack would be offering the HTC EVO 4G handset for the Sprint network in its stores and was taking pre-orders on the device with a $50 gift card holding your handset. We have heard lots of rumors about pricing on the EVO 4G and Sprint has now made that price official.

Just as the rumors suggested, the HTC EVO 4G will sell for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate directly from Sprint. RadioShack is taking a Best Buy style approach though and is the better place to get the handset with the same $199.99 price without having to mess with mail-in rebates.

The folks that pre-order the EVO 4G with RadioShack will also get a $20 in-store accessory credit, if the pre-order is placed by May 31. RadioShack will also be selling unactivated EVO 4G handsets for $499.99. Look for our review of the EVO 4G later this week.
