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.

    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 ...

    The list of HTC smartphones that can be "officially" unlocked is increasing, though not as fast as some would like. Today HTC updated their list, which now includes Sprint's Evo 3D, T-Mobile's Sensation 4G, and HTC Sensation models for Europe, Turkey, Arabic, and Bouygues Telecom. If you've got one of these phones and have been waiting to unlock it, wait no longer! Head over to HTCdev.com and enjoy your new-found freedom! Source: HTCdev.com

    We've already seen a white EVO 3D reportedly headed to Radio Shack, and now it seems that Best Buy will be getting its own exclusive shade in the form of a purple model. Best Buy regularly negotiates agreements which put popular HTC phones of different hues on its shelves, such as the silver and white Incredible S and, prior to that, the original EVO 4G. In general, HTC seems to be getting more colorful with its handsets: besides several white variants -- including the upcoming, white-only Omega -- we're also expecting the "sea-foam green" Bliss in the near future, as well as a handset ...

    After an initial bump where the Sprint EVO 3D needed an additional update to fix what the initial one broke, there were rumors of an update coming to the phone last week. If you have an EVO 3D yourself you can expect the notification for an over-the-air update which will bring you a widget and a brand new radio. The new version of the radio should improve on reception quality while also making the phone hold on to the signal better. If you got the update, let us know of that "Corporate 4G" widget! Update: Apparently the update doesn't contain a new radio but a software patch that fixes the ...

    While you've got tons of options for cases, and plenty of decals to help give your phone a new facade, when it comes to smartphones, there's often very little variety as to what colors the phones themselves are available in. Sure, there are exceptions, but more often than not you'll be wanting for options. Last month we looked at the work of one HTC EVO 3D user, who attempted to make up for the lack of color choices (as well as repair a little inadvertent cosmetic damage) by turning his handset into a non-existent white version. While that project gets five stars for effort, most of us ...

    Back at the beginning of the week, HTC started to make good on its commitment to start unlocking the bootloaders for some of its models by the end of August. That took care of the Sensation, but what about the Sensation 4G and EVO 3D? It's looking very much like the manufacturer will hit its end-of-the-month deadline, announcing that its unlock tool now supports the EVO 3D on Sprint. While the Sensation was ready to go for go for unlocking as soon as HTC flipped the switch, the EVO 3D will require a software update first. It's not immediately clear if HTC is talking about one of the ...
