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 ...
