Best Buy Quietly Starts Accepting HTC EVO 3D Pre-Orders


Even if a 3D display isn’t going to be the deciding factor when you make your next smartphone purchase, there’s no denying that the HTC EVO 3D’s other specs are more than impressive enough to stand on their own. From a 4.3-inch qHD display to a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon, the EVO 3D has all the hardware needed to compete head-to-head against the other top smart phones for dominance this summer. Apparently that won’t come early enough for everyone, as according to a leaked internal Best Buy communication, the retailer is responding to customer demand by now accepting pre-orders for the EVO 3D, even without an official launch date.

The flyer discourages Best Buy employees from doing anything to promote this pre-order, keeping it off the table unless a customer specifically asks about the Sprint smartphone. Even then, there’s precious little information available to best Buy employees, with only a few specs confirmed for them to share with customers (speculating as to what smartphone news sites have been saying about the EVO 3D is strictly verboten).

Among the specs Best Buy confirms is the presence of dual five-megapixel cameras. After seeing the international GSM version of the EVO 3D get a revised spec list that downgraded the cameras to two-megapixel senors, we were fearing that we might be facing the same cutbacks with the US version on Sprint. Best Buy, at least, seems confident that won’t be the case.

Pre-ordering the EVO 3D at this point won’t get you much more that a little piece of mind, but if you can’t fight the urge, Best Buy will be happy to help you out; all you need to do is ask.
