Sprint Evo 4G launch party

The Sprint HTC Evo 4G is set for its big coming-out party on May 12 in New York City. And as with the Evo's cousin, the Windows Mobile-powered HD2, it looks like movies are going to play a big part of the device -- so much so that Sprint's giving an advance screening of "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," ahead of its Memorial Day release. And if the thought of two hours of Jake Gyllenhaal in a loin cloth isn't exciting enough, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse's also going to be on hand for the big event.

Still no word about when the Evo 4G will actually be available (or what it will cost); the invite only says "this summer." Stay tuned.
