If you've got your eye on Sprint and HTC's latest WiMax-capable baby, you're in luck - an anonymous source at Best Buy has just sent us the following shot of their system:

It appears the EVO Shift 4G, or SKU 1768561, will retail for just $149.99 on contract. As an unexpected (but very welcome) surprise, shoppers looking to upgrade to the phone from an older device will be charged the same $149.99 as new customers, provided they also sign up for a new two-year contract.

Those of you who prefer to buy your devices off-contract will be coughing up $549.99, while those who would rather go with a one-year agreement will be handing over $299.99. Finally, upgrading your device while simultaneously signing up for a new one-year contract will cost $349.99.

Not bad pricing, especially since the Samsung Epic 4G, whose feature set appears to be nearly identical to that of the Shift 4G, costs a Benjamin more on contract. Let's just hope Sprint's official pricing follows suit.

Thanks, Anon!

    "As an unexpected (but very welcome) surprise, shoppers looking to upgrade to the phone from an older device will be charged the same $149.99 as new customers, provided they also sign up for a new two-year contract."

    Doesn't that apply to ALL phones when a subscriber is up for a renewal? They get the phone at the same price as any Joe off the street getting the phone for the first time....?

      It is common for new customer deals to be a lot more lucrative compared to upgrades, but that is mostly online. B&M stores usually have the same (higher than online) price for both.

    I don't get why there are no high-end, big-screened, keyboard-toting phones. An EVO with a keyboard would be perfect, why do you have to go and tone down the processor and make the screen tiny?
