The Samsung Galaxy S III is coming and all manufacturers are confused because this beast will destroy everything and everyone on its way. Of course, Android market has several desperate warriors ready to stand against the combination of power and beauty. Those combatants are born in the same family but carry different names, meet them — the HTC One X and its incarnations. The fights will take place in every corner of the globe but the decisive ones will be in the US where each of the top carriers will launch its own version of the Galaxy S III. This simply means Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile consumers must choose who they will support. But there are several incomplete tasks that must be finished before the fight, say Sprint’s variant of the HTC One X that is called the Evo 4G LTE still doesn’t support Google Wallet. Well, HTC fans have no reason to be worried about because now all One X smartphones are ready to resist the “foe.”
After a long prolog I want to disclose all the weapons Sprint has armed its Evo 4G LTE. First, the phone was announced to be sold without Google Wallet support because the carrier is going to offer its own mobile payment system called Sprint Touch. But later Google came with an announcement saying there was a software issue not allowing to bring Google Wallet to the Sprint’s flagship. Consequently, this payment system should arrive at Sprint consumers in the near future. The HTC Evo 4G LTE smartphones can use Google Wallet, because it is back to the devices.
Second, Amazon comes with an awesome offer for those who want to buy the HTC Evo 4G LTE from its stores. The phone now costs $49.99 on contract but it’s valid only for new consumers. Anyway, this is $80 less than Amazon’s latest offer when it was selling this handset for $129.99. Moreover, the existing consumers can get it for only $149.99, so Amazon has made a $50-discount for its current subscribers. The HTC Evo 4G LTE handsets will be yours at such prices if you sign a two-year contract with the carrier.
As you see, Sprint’s HTC flagship is ready to meet the Galaxy S III on July 1, and what about the rest?
