HTC EVO 4G and EVO View 4G Added to Sprint’s List Of Device End-Of-Life
Not much ago we informed you about Sprint sending updates For HTC EVO 4G and EVO Design 4G which will remove the infamous Carrier IQ; well now it seems that not only Carrier IQ will be removed as the company included HTC EVO 4G and EVO View 4G on the most updated list of devices coming to End-Of-Life.
This means that both HTC devices are ending their days on the shelves. EVO 4G is expected to leave this week, and the EVO View 4G -Sprint´s version of HTC Flyer- will leave next week.

Maybe it´s just another way to make space for the new upcoming line of devices that will pop out from MWC in just a few weeks.
Please tell us what you think and thanks for reading.
