Happy Friday, everyone! Or should we say, happy HTC Evo 4G day? That's right, this is the day many smartphone fans have been waiting for, as America's first 4G smartphone is now officially on sale.

The HTC Evo 4G can be purchased through Sprint as well as other electronics retailers, including Best Buy and RadioShack, for $199.99 with a two-year contract. The smartphone requires a $69.99 Everything Data Plan and a $10 Premium Data Add-on.

Though we don't necessarily agree with the mandatory $10 fee, and battery life could be better, the Evo 4G is an amazing device. Aside from the fact that it's the nation's first 4G phone, it's powerful, fast, and rocks a solid design. Sprint most definitely landed one of the hottest devices of the year.

A number of Sprint and RadioShack stores are open early to fulfill preorders and combat long lines. If you're heading out to pick up one up, let us know how it goes.
