After a delay, Sprint and HTC have a launch date locked down for the HTC Evo 4G LTE , Sprint's new flagship device: June 2.

A patent spat with Apple slowed down shipments of the Evo 4G LTE -- and of the HTC One X -- but Sprint assured customers last week that it would be able to fulfill pre-orders of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset starting May 24.

The HTC Evo 4G LTE features a 4.7-inch screen, a dual-core processor, a great 8-megapixel camera and sells for $199.99. Despite its LTE-readiness, Sprint has yet to ignite its 4G LTE network.
