The new EVO 3D specifications have been confirmed with 3D camera duality
The halls of CTIA were buzzing with excitement about the new HTC EVO 3D. This thing makes the EVO 4G look like a corded car-phone. Complete with 3D technology, the 1.2 GHz dual-core processor will provide more than enough power to run anything cell developers can throw at it. The 4.3-inch HD display will give you plenty of viewing space to watch videos with 1080p playback. Incredible, huh?
When watching 3D content, however, the video playback drops to 720p, but heck, it’s a cell phone and that’s nothing to scoff at. In addition to the specifications on the EVO 3D release, the EVO View has also been tabbed. The Sprint Flyer platform has obviously been reworked to create the new tablet, and word is that all information will be validated by Sprint’s press release later in the week.
The thought of our cell phones going 3D only increases the belief that unlike 3D we’ve seen in the past, this time around, the technology is here to stay. The ability to watch movies via our cell devices is still relatively fresh technology, but watching 3D? Well, that’s just ludicrous...well, it was ludicrous.

HTC’s new EVO 3D combined size and power. Details emerge as we finally get our hands on the 3D capable device
Our first response…surprised. You’d think that with everything that the new 3D cell devices offer, they’d be massive. Nope. Instead, when we first handled the EVO 3D, it was easy to mistake it for the EVO 4G. Complete with stereoscopic 3D effects, the device isn’t akward or bulky.
The 4.3-inch screen makes for reasonable viewing experiences, and the 3D quality isn’t bad at all. Obviously, if you move too far to the right or left, you lose the effect, but hey, that’s a small price to pay for having 3D movies in the palm of your hand.
Toggling between 2D and 3D is simple (through a side-board switch), but it only controls the dynamic of the camera. The software controls much of the content, so you’ll be able to sit back and let this baby do what it does best: deliver 3D with surprising quality wherever you are.
Should you find yourself intrigued by 3D cell advancement, this isn’t a bad place to start. Surprisingly small, and packing plenty of punch, the EVO 3D from HTC is sure to find its way into several greedy little mitts. I know my greedy little mitts can set it down…

So, you’ve already snagged your EVO 3D, right? Of course you have, which is why I’m here today to tell you that some new accessories are hitting the market that should catch your eye. If you’re anything like me, you picked up your unit and immediately wondered why in the heck they’d leave the kickstand off. Well, luckily, a new “Video Dock” will remedy that situation. And, when you learn that it’s only $50, you start to feel all warm and fuzzy inside…ok, that’s just your capitalist excitement…
By propping up your EVO, you can watch all of that 3D content without having to utilize your “doctor-steady” hands. Instead, you can put it on the table, grab your snacks, and get your 3D on. Available on 8/21/11, this accessory is a must-own for anyone with the handheld 3D cell.
That’s not all, however, as a gunslingin’ holster is perfect for quick drawing other techies to show off just how 3D-ready you really are. The side-mounted case also acts as a shield, so you can easily protect your investment. You can snag one of these for $19 on July 24. Get ready, EVO users…the accessories are coming, and they’re looking pretty fresh…

The FCC is giving their standard once-over to HTC’s latest submission: the PG86300. This should look pretty familiar, as it’s simply a variation of the EVO 3D. The 86300 uses radios that we’ve already seen on the European rendition, and once they get FCC approval, we’ll have the beefed up EVO 3D for the taking. T-Mobile’s gotta love this kind of push, and there’s no doubt that the EVO 3D is already getting some market love.
The difference between the European rendition and what we’ve been seeing in the States already is the Tri-band 3G radio and quad-band 2G radio. Basically, you’ll start seeing unlocked European models in the states right about….now.
The FCC reviews every product before clearing it for American release because they want to make sure that you aren’t going to turn into a zombie for using the device. While the jury is still out on that one, we’re definitely willing to take the risk! So, do you think that the improved radio technology will make much of a difference when it comes to the sales of the EVO 3D? Honestly, the market probably won’t care about these kinds of specs until the 3D smartphone craze wears off.

Apparently, there’s reports that the EVO 3D is already up and running, but you’ll need to worm your way into getting one. Who knows how? Not me, but ultimately, if you can snag one, it’ll cost you $199.99 if you’re willing to commit yourself to the two year commitment (which is just shy of also offering up one of your kidneys, though I hear that’s in the works for the next round of cell phone contracts). But, let’s say that you’re interested getting one without marrying Sprint…well, that’s gonna hit you where it hurts.
The EVO 3D will run you $549.99 if you decide that the commitment is just too much for ya. I get it…I had commitment issues for a while, but hey, who hasn’t, right? Ultimately, the moral of the story is that there are a few of these guys roaming around.
There’s something about having a 3D cell phone that intrigues me. Will it offer up quality 3D or do they put it on there just to entice us? We’ll let you know once we get our hands on one. And, despite my earlier statement…I got connections. I’ll let you know. Until then, just look at the pretty pictures.
