NEW ORLEANS--Mark your calendars for May 18, Sprint customers. That's the day that the HTC Evo 4G LTE goes on sale for just about $200 with a new, two-year contract.

If you didn't preorder the device on May 7, you'll have about a week to make your move with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone.

A variant of the CNET Editor's Choice winner HTC One X, the Evo 4G LTE features a 4.7-inch HD display, a dual-core Qualcomm Snaprdragon S4 processor, an 8-megapixel camera, Beats audio integration, and HTC Sense 4.0.

Sprint's version of the LTE-capable device also has its own special touch, a signature Evo kickstand.

Of course, Sprint's LTE service isn't up and running yet, but the company is amassing a handful of LTE-capable phones, including the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the LG Viper .
