For those of you seriously considering pulling the trigger on the upcoming Sprint EVO 4G, here’s a little Public Service Announcement that will save you the headache of having to deal with the $100 mail-in rebate that lowers the purchase price of the HTC EVO 4G down to the now-standard $200 price point. As we’ve mentioned previously, if you get your EVO from Best Buy, the big box retailer will handle all the MIR hassle for you. That means Best Buy will sell you an EVO 4G for $200 straight-up – compared to paying an extra $100 in a Sprint store and having to wait for a $100 rebate check to hit your snail-mailbox.
Even if you don’t consider a mail-in rebate a hassle – although, you’d be the outlier here – it just makes sense to grab the Android-powered EVO from Best Buy. You can either pre-order the handset or walk into the store on launch day and take advantage of not having to shell out an additional C-note to put this year’s hottest Android phone in your pocket. We think that’s a big deal.
