The HTC EVO 3D is the first 3D smartphone from HTC. It runs on Sprint's 4G WiMax network and can wirelessly tether up to eight devices. It features a dual-core Qualcomm 1.2GHz CPU and around 768MB of RAM on top of Android 2.3. The screen is 4.3" and qHD resolution, providing 960x540 pixels. The dual 5MP cameras on the back of the device can record 2D or 3D video, which you can toggle via a switch on the side of the device. There's also a front-facing 1.3MP camera for video chat and self-portraits. The EVO 3D is expected to be for sale in the summer of 2011 on Sprint.

    Remember yesterday morning, when we told you about that wild story of the gas station robbery where the HTC EVO 3D one employee was carrying in his pocket ended up catching the robber's bullet? Call it a testament to HTC's build quality, or just dumb luck, but we're sure that guy was very happy he had his phone on him that day. Problem is, it's totally busted now; luckily, HTC is to the rescue. After hearing about the incident, HTC decided to put together a little care package, including not just a brand new HTC One, but a bunch of accessories, and an assortment of HTC swag (how many of ...

    The year was 2011. Dual-core was king, and 720p displays were still a few months away. As always, smartphone manufacturers were looking for the next big “hook” to really make their handsets stand out, and a couple of them, perhaps emboldened by the arrival of the Nintendo 3DS, decided to give their phones some autostereoscopic (no glasses required) 3D displays of their own. The fad failed to catch on in any appreciable manner, and the industry has apparently moved on, putting such technology behind it. That doesn't mean that 3D phones are out of the spotlight forever, and one very ...

    Following HTC's indecision over the Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Desire HD, and the ultimate choice not to proceed with the software's release, we wouldn't blame HTC users for growing a little apprehensive about the ICS fate of some of the manufacturer's other models. It's seemed pretty certain that the EVO 3D on Sprint would get an ICS update, especially as the Virgin Mobile and Canadian versions of the phone already have Android 4.0, but news of delays may have stirred-up some concern. After all, first we heard from a Sprint exec that the update would land in June, but then HTC ...

    If you have HTC's first 3D-enabled smartphone on Sprint, the EVO 3D, or the EVO Design 4G, you will only have to wait a couple of weeks until the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update notification will hit your device, according to an official announcement from the carrier. Ice Cream Sandwich is no Jelly Bean but it surely is no Gingerbread either. It brings you all the great goodies, like the refined user interface, Face Unlock, Google+ integration, better keyboard and so on. Early August is just around the corner so you still have some time to say goodbye to your current ROM (in ...

    HTC's been talking about which of its Androids would be seeing updates to Ice Cream Sandwich for some time now, so we've generally had a good idea for what to expect. We've already seen the company start delivering those updates to some of its lineup, leaving the question of just when it would get around to hitting the rest of them. To help with answers, the manufacturer has put together a convenient table, detailing just when it expects to make ICS available for those remaining devices. It looks like the majority of phones that haven't yet started getting ICS will do so next month. That ...

    Anyone remember the latest attempted mobile 3D resurgence? It wasn't that long ago; just last summer we Americans saw the release of the Evo 3D as a follow-up device to the best-selling smartphone in Sprint's history. The "Evo" branding marked this device for a premium slot and guaranteed its title as one of the most anticipated phones of 2011 (in the US, anyway). Even though I was deeply invested in another platform at the time and had no real use for 3D, the device piqued my curiosity. Indeed, we pegged 3D as one of the trends of 2011 at last year's MWC, alongside "Android" and the more ...

    The HTC EVO 3D on Sprint is one of those phones where we've long known that the handset will be seeing an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, but didn't have a strong grasp on just when that might be. With the news that the Virgin Mobile version of the phone would come with ICS (and the related screw-up where many Sprint users flashed the leaked ROM for that phone onto their Sprint handsets, temporarily giving them Virgin branding without an obvious way to go back), you could probably make a safe bet that ICS would come to the EVO 3D sooner rather than later, but we still lacked official ...

    A cursory look at the state of cellular technologies in the US would give one the impression that WiMAX is on its way out. After all, Sprint has finally caught LTE fever and has already transitioned from releasing new WiMAX-enabled handsets to those with LTE radios, even in advance of its own network's availability. That's not to say that the sun has set on WiMAX entirely, and as Sprint backs away from it, Virgin Mobile is more than ready to step forward and embrace the 4G system. Virgin will kick things off with WiMAX on May 31, as it begins sales of its first 4G smartphone, the HTC EVO V ...

    With many of the large mobile OEMs still unimpressed with the performance of 3D displays in the mobile market, it seems we may be nearing the end of another fad. With big names like HTC, LG, Sharp, and even Nintendo throwing solid efforts behind the technology, you'd think in 2012 we'd have something significant to show for it. Sadly current glasses-free 3D technology simply stands as a bit of a gimmick with far too many drawbacks over its 2D counterpart. Before we can talk about drawbacks in the mobile sector however, we should examine how they work. How it works: Devices like the HTC Evo ...

    Last night, we gave you a hands-on look at the HTC EVO 4G LTE, some enhanced One XL hardware that's looking to be the third LTE-supporting smartphone to debut on Sprint's new network. There's understandably a lot of excitement for this model, improving on the initial One XL design with a larger battery and microSD support. HTC has since posted a video to its YouTube account that shows-off the EVO 4G LTE while giving us some insight into the company's design process. As the camera pans by a row of some of HTC's case designs, we can see one model which seems to suggest HTC's been toying with ...

    We've learned from a reliable source that Virgin Mobile will begin carrying the nearly year-old HTC EVO 3D later this year, offering it up as the HTC EVO V 4G. Tipped to be available in both grey as well as the plum shade once exclusive to Best Buy, the rebranded EVO 3D will join the recently-revealed HTC One V on Virgin, creating quite a compelling portfolio of HTC Android devices on the prepaid carrier. Despite getting somewhat long in the tooth, the EVO 3D still offers a very attractive feature set. Besides being one of only two auto-stereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D handsets available in ...

    Last night, we told you about the latest news regarding the next-generation of auto-stereoscopic smartphones. We'd heard of LG's model as the Optimus 3D Max, and learned of new plans to bring it to certain carriers as the Optimus 3D Cube. With all this talk of future 3D phones, what does that mean for current models like LG's original Optimus 3D and HTC's EVO 3D? We haven't heard about the Optimus 3D going anywhere just yet, but it looks like HTC's time in the sun could be about over, with at least the white version of the EVO 3D showing-up on the latest Sprint EOL list leak. According to ...

    As we start to get into mid-February, there are probably a lot of you out there wondering where all the Ice Cream Sandwich updates for your existing Android phones are. After all, weren't we hoping to see these releases really start arriving in early 2012? The good news is that the wait is nearly over, at least for some HTC users. The smartphone manufacturer posted a message to Facebook this morning talking about plans for the delivery of its first Ice Cream Sandwich updates in March. We already knew about HTC's plans to start selling phones running Android 4.0 in March, with the launch of ...

    Besides "don't download apps from sketchy sources", one of the big rules of keeping your Android device safe is "think carefully about approving app requests for system permissions". That latter one can be tricky to encourage, since it requires the user to do a bit of critical thinking at the time of installation; does that Sudoku-solving app you downloaded really need the ability to send SMS messages? The idea is, though, that if you are smart about granting permissions, you can stop malicious apps from taking advantage of you. Sometimes it's not that simple, and the request of a ...

    Users of the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint should be keeping their eyes peeled for the availability of a new system update, which the carrier announced this afternoon via tweet. Unfortunately, we're not talking about Ice Cream Sandwich just yet; Sprint describes the release as a maintenance update. If you were expecting Android 4.0, we'd understand, since a supposed leak we looked at a few days ago indicated that HTC had been planning to get the phone's update out before the end of last year. Would that have been true, we very well might have expected the delayed release to finally come out ...

    Back in November HTC told its users about initial plans to deliver the Ice Cream Sandwich update to some of its devices. These were the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, as well as the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G. HTC Turkey seems to have taken to Facebook a table (the one above) detailing devices that will get the new Android update as well as an approximate time for the roll-out process. Aside from a confirmed December 2011 date for the EVO 3D (which seems to be late), the list says January will be the month to expect the update for ...

    Early this month, a security vulnerability in a number of HTC-manufactured Androids was revealed, letting apps get unauthorized access to your personal data. HTC quickly responded to news of the threat, announcing that security updates would be forthcoming for affected models. We've already seen some of those start to arrive, but it looks like the big push has just begun, at least for HTC users in the States. Several EVO-series models on Sprint are now in the process of getting updates correcting the bug. These are generally small, around 10MB, and exclusively target one vulnerability. ...

    Previously we compared the Samsung Epic 4G Touch to the Motorola Photon 4g on Sprint. In this video we continue our comparison series, this time with the Epic 4G Touch and the HTC EVO 3D, both of which are available for $199 after a new two-year agreement on Sprint. The most notable difference between the two devices is that the Epic 4G Touch is much thinner and lighter than the EVO 3D, despite having a larger screen. But the EVO 3D is also a 3D-capable device, meaning it can record and playback 3D images and video.

    Security is becoming an issue more and more on phones running Google's Android platform. The rule of thumb usually is that there is either a platform vulnerability which is usually fixed by Google or there are malware-infected apps in the Android Market which are eventually deleted by Google (both from the Market and off devices). The recent vulnerability seems to be HTC's fault; apparently there's a huge security flaw which affects Android phones manufactured by the Taiwanese phone-maker (U.S. models only according to some reports). Models believed to be affected are the EVO 4G, EVO 3D, ...

    We know that CyanogenMOD for the HTC Sensation was in the works -- together with the one for the LG Optimus 3D -- and since the Sensation and the EVO 3D share so much in common, the first Alpha has landed and is now available for both Taiwanese devices. Heading over to the source links below you will land on a thread with description, instructions and feedback for the first Alpha releases of CyanogenMOD dedicated for the HTC Sensation and the EVO 3D. Since it's an Alpha release, there will be plenty of bugs but if that doesn't bother you -- or you just wish to get away from stock -- you ...

    Ever since HTC decided to go on with its bootloader unlock policy, the HTCdev website has been growing in terms of phones that are supported. With the occasion of the last update, more Sensation phones were added to the list and now, again, HTC diversifies the offering. If until recently you could only unlock your Sprint EVO 3D, the HTCdev website now offers unlocking for the Canadian version of the phone on Rogers, as well as the carrier-unlocked EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) flavor. HTC has red flags all over the page telling you that your phone's warranty may be void if you ...

    Yesterday saw attention return to the issue of how companies use your smartphone to gather data about you and your activities, with news of a lawsuit accusing Microsoft of surreptitiously gathering location data. HTC looks like it's the next one to take the hot seat, after the discovery that recent updates to the EVO 3D and Sensation have the smartphones recording a host of information about your phone's status. Under the guise of "User Behavior Logging", the new software for the HTC pair looks at things such as what apps you've installed, which you've been using, and builds statistics ...

    The Sprint HTC EVO 3D recently received an update and, if you've applied the new PRL list (preferred roaming list) you've might have noticed that you're kind of stuck on slow 2G connections. Version 50580 of the PRL on the EVO 3D seems to block Sprint's 3D EVDO thus forcing you to use the 1xRTT network. If you experience the above and can't/won't wait for an official fix from the carrier or manufacturer, there's a way to reclaim your faster speeds, given you're an advanced Android user that likes to get his/her hands dirty. The process of reverting to the old PRL version 21081 implies that ...

    Recently we reported on HTC's apparent "spying" on users with a recent update to the EVO 3D and Sensation. According to a report, HTC has responded to these charges: "We've seen some questions about Sensation and Evo 3D and want to provide more information. HTC, like most manufacturers, has an opt-in error reporting function built in to our devices. If your phone experiences an error, you have the option of "Telling HTC" so we can make improvements to our phones. Details about this are in our privacy policy on each device and in order for data to be collected, you have to opt-in. If you do ...
