EVO 4G Shortages Hurting Sprint's WiMax Lead

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said that the company might blow its 4G lead due to a lack of 4G-enabled devices. The HTC-made EVO 4G, in particular, is almost non-existent.

HTC is having a tough time making enough EVO 4Gs for Sprint. It's also having a hard time making enough Droid Incredibles for Verizon Wireless. Both devices are it short supply because HTC isn't getting enough of the large touch displays from Samsung that both devices require. The issue could have a large impact on Sprint's 4G business, say some.
