The EVO V 4G, Virgin Mobile's answer to the EVO 3D, is now available for pre-order from Radio Shack. For $299.99 you get a more than capable high-end Android handset, that you own outright, runs on the Wimax 4G network, and can use on Virgin's ubercheap prepaid service. That's hard to beat, no matter who you ask.

The EVO V ships with Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 3.6, has all the hardware bells and whistles it's Sprint counterpart had -- including the stereoscopic 3D cameras and screen, and will be available at the end of this month. While it's not exactly state of the art when compared to the upcoming Android phones, this one is a great upgrade for all those Wildfire S' and Optimus V's out there. If you're thinking of making the jump, rest easy knowing that some of the best Optimus hackers are doing the same

Pre-order the HTC EVO V 4G from Radio Shack. Thanks,  GreyCelt!

No problem! Thanks for letting the rest of the world know.

For $100 dollars more, why not get the Galaxy Nexus and use it on Simple Mobile or Straight Talk?

Because the EVO V will get strong 3G/4G/WiFi/GPS signals, while the GNex is hampered by Samsung radios.

That's the Verizon version. GSM doesn't do all that

Hope these preorders work out better than my Evo :-/

3D screen as well?

I can't wait to get my hands on this phone!

PWC Realtor says:

Just remember this phone means giving up the $25 grandfathered plan

More than likely I'll be upgrading to the Evo V 4G and passing along my Triumph to a friend. I like having a $40 per month plan.

jimbo says:

Can I do something to my Sprint EVO 3D to make/have it work on Virgin?

MrJedi says:

When will there be forums for the EVO V, Virgin Optimus Elite, and eventually the Virgin One V? A certain other Android site has them for all 3 already.
