NEW ORLEANS--As Sprint readies its 4G LTE launch, the unveiling of the HTC Evo V 4G spreads the 4G WiMax love to Virgin Mobile, one of its no-contract brands.

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset has some high-flying features not often seen on no-contract networks, including a 4.3-inch qHD touch screen, a 5-megapixel camera with support for 3D HD imaging, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

It also has mobile hot-spot capability for up to five devices, and a microSD card slot that can support up to 32GB; 8GB comes included.

The HTC Evo V 4G will go on sale May 31 for $299.99; Virgin Mobile plans start at $35 per month for 300 minutes of talk time and unlimited texting and data.

Virgin Mobile will also offer the Overdrive Pro 3G/4G mobile hot spot by Sierra Wireless for $149.99 and the U600 3G/4G USB Stick by Franklin Wireless for $99.99. Both 4G WiMax devices go on sale May 31.

Stay tuned for more details and photos, which we hope to get here at CTIA 2012.
