Not surprisingly, Sprint stock has gone up since the official announcement of its first 4G, Android-powered phone. Initial buzz on the device has been palpable.

Sprint stock rose to $3.94 per share today. That's an 11-cent, 2.9% increase.

All eyes are on the EVO, because it is the first full-fledged mobile phone that will run on a next-generation wireless network.

After a long slump for Sprint, long relegated as the third-largest mobile carrier in terms of subscribers, it is punching back to the forefront as the one paving the way to next-gen mobile data.

And even though Sprint's CEO once said essentially that it was too good for Android, it's giving the Google operating system the opportunity to make history with it. Android will power the EVO phone when it debuts in the summer.
