If you're champing at the bit for a chance to own the upcoming HTC 4G LTE , it's almost time to quench your smartphone thirst. Sprint's registry page for preorders of the coveted handset is now live.

Not only does this follow-up to the wildly successful HTC Evo 4G look like a worthy successor, it actually could outdo the legendary Android smartphone. Instead of WiMax, the new Evo flaunts a connection to the more robust and importantly faster LTE data standard. The device now features a Qualcomm dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, plus 16GB of internal storage. Oh yes, it comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4 as well.

I spent a few brief moments up close with the HTC Evo 4G LTE and was very impressed. It's super slim, has a stylish and elegant design, and rocks a massive 4.7-inch Super LCD screen. What about a kickstand you ask? Of course, it wouldn't be a true Evo without it.

One caveat, though, is that Sprint's hyped 4G LTE network hasn't actually launched yet. Apparently Sprint will have 10 cities lit up with LTE by mid-2012 so the earliest new Evo buyers or Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners can experience fast wireless data is in June.

Still crave a new HTC Evo 4G LTE? Sprint will officially begin taking preorders for the $199.99 device on May 7.
