That sweet Evo 4G smartphone from HTC is a Sprint exclusive and turned out to be the most popular device the company has had in ages. The catch was that the handset was so popular it quickly sold out in many areas.

Sprint is seeing shortages of key components that are preventing as many of the headsets form getting to market as the company would like. Shortages of handsets certainly irritate consumers, but Sprint is equally upset.

The WSJ reports that Sprint CEO Dan Hesse has stated that the shortage is hurting its 4G service lead. The network may be in place in several cities around the country, but with no handset that can run on the WiMax network that is widely available few consumers are taking advantage of the 4G service.
