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. Read on for the latest EVO 3D news, reviews and videos:

    The Sprint HTC EVO 3D comes in just one color, black, but that doesn't mean that you can't be unique and paint yours white (or multi-color), as XDA user Zoidpilot has done after dropping his EVO 3D down a driveway, thus inflicting significant damage. To do the painting you'll need various types of sand paper, paint, plus some other accessories. You'll also need a source of heat to cure the paint. The end result is impressive and truly looks like a stock white EVO 3D. Hit the source link for the complete tutorial, with pictures. Source: XDA

    Another Sprint HTC EVO 3D problem arises after a couple of days ago we told you about a manufacturing "cosmetic issue" in which a customer bought two identical phones just to find out one had the camera plate inverted at the back. This time the EVO 3D is overheating according to several reports. Initially reported in the forums, the Sprint HTC EVO 3D appears to be overheating and we're likely to face two problems: the first one seems to be caused by a high charging current that makes the battery and phone itself overheat; the second appears to be caused by either hardware or software as it ...

    The international GSM version of HTC's EVO 3D, available later this month, has been put up for pre-order by Amazon UK at the premium price of 570 pounds, or around $915. The similarly-spec'ed HTC Sensation, while lacking the latest EVO's 3D capture and playback, retails for 500 pounds from Amazon (prior to any discounts), which is about $800. Stateside, Sprint's EVO 3D can be had for $549 off-contract, or $200 with a two-year commitment. It's not unusual for HTC's top-of-the-line devices to fetch a hefty price unlocked in Europe, but with similar handsets now available in the US at the ...

    You don't have to take a long and thorough look at the image above to see that something's not right. You can see two Sprint HTC EVO 3D smartphones alright, one of them though is a little bit, well, special. AndroidCentral got a tip from a kind customer of Nebraska Furniture Mart where he purchased two smartphones. The two EVO 3Ds pictured above are not one and the same and there's no mirror involved. The camera plate on the back side is upside-down. It's just a cosmetic issue -- and the store won't exchange it -- but we would hate to see HTC going down that road. The Taiwanese company has ...

    A couple of days ago we told you that the HTC-made Sprint EVO 3D has been rooted but the tools were not made public yet. Since the HTC Sensation and the EVO 3D have similar internals, the tools are supporting both smartphones and have now gone public. These are Fre3vo and Fre3dom. Fre3vo is a temp-root acquiring tool, allowing users access to a root shell on their HTC EVO 3D and Sensation devices. Fre3domis the name of the tool being developed to enable S-OFF on the EVO 3D and Sensation. Fre3vo is already available if you follow the source link where you'll find links, instructions as well ...

    Digging the no-glasses-required 3D display on the HTC EVO 3D, but are already starting to run low on YouTube 3D content and are itching to have some more fun with your phone? For us, that often means rooting and getting ready for custom ROMs, but so far the EVO 3D has remained secure. Though unreleased for the moment, you'll soon be able to get your superuser on, thanks to a newly-discovered exploit that's been used to root the smartphone. Earlier today, we got word that Team Win was onto an exploit that made the EVO 3D vulnerable to potential rooting. That seemed like the major roadblock ...

    After landing at Sprint in the US last week, HTC's EVO 3D is ready to take on the world; a GSM model of the Android smartphone will let users around the globe get online with this no-glasses-required 3D handset. A version of the phone recently saw its paperwork published at the FCC, and while it's definitely a GSM-sporting EVO 3D, it may not be that international version we're looking at. Unlike the WiMAX-equipped HTC EVO 3D that graces Sprint's network, this EVO 3D is outfitted with GSM bands. Employing 850 and 1900MHz for voice, and 1700MHz for WCDMA data, it's very likely we're looking ...

    Back in the days of the HTC Sensation, aka Pyramid, Vodafone UK was the first carrier to have the smartphone in its line-up (the carrier even managed to somehow leak the device prior to its official announcement). It looks like it will the first again in the U.K. to carry the European EVO 3D. Announced yesterday, the HTC EVO 3D GSM is already listed on Vodafone U.K.'s website wearing a Coming Soon label. You can sign up to find out when it will become available for pre-order or shipment by following the source link. Just like its Sprint brother, the European GSM EVO 3D sports a ...

    A month ago HTC officially announced that it will be no longer locking down bootloaders on future smartphones and that it will try to retroactively unlock, to the best of its knowledge, relatively fresh smartphones that have the lock applied. Of course there are lots of angry EVO 3D owners that have the bootloader locked on their new smartphones. Turning to HTC for support, the company has replied that it is "diligently working" on unlocking it with an announcement due when the project is over. Until then you will have to settle for the possibility of uninstalling applications without the ...

    The HTC EVO 3D was announced in relation to Sprint at the end of March as the Taiwanese manufacturer's first glasses-free 3D smartphone on the U.S. carrier. HTC has just announced the European (GSM) version of the smartphone called interestingly still the EVO 3D. You've got all the goodies the Sprint version has: 1.2-gigahertz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch qHD glasses-free 3D screen, 4GB of internal storage, 1GB RAM, dual five-megapixel 3D cameras in the back with dedicated 2D and 3D mode switch, for capturing stills and 720p video, 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for ...

    Earlier today, we looked at how easy it was to clean house on the newly-released HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. The pre-installed apps could be removed without issue, instead of requiring you to root the phone before your uninstall any you weren't interested in keeping. Sounded good, and we were pleasantly surprised, but it looks like there's even more reason to be happy; this could just be the first of many Androids Sprint releases where you won't have unwanted apps forced upon you. MobileBurn contacted Sprint to see what was going on with the EVO 3D. After all, you'd be forgiven for thinking ...

    Before HTC's EVO 3D on Sprint was even in wide release, only available to Sprint Premier customers, the very first OTA update for the smartphone started going out, addressing a potentially annoying problem where malformed entries could cause the calendar to lose some of your data. Everything sounded good, but then word started to come in that in fixing that problem, the update was causing another. Luckily those early EVO 3D owners didn't have to wait long, since HTC already has a fix for the botched updated available. The first update ended up messing with the EVO 3D's lock screen, killing ...

    Sprint officially announced the HTC EVO 3D back in March with the occasion of this year's CTIA and has just made it public that the Taiwanese 3D smartphone is now available from the carrier for anyone to own. Sprint Premier customers had a three day advance but you can now grab the EVO 3D yourself. The price is $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade. You can grab the smartphone from Sprint stores as well as online from the carrier. The smartphone runs on Sprint's 4G WiMax network and can wirelessly tether up to eight devices. It sports a dual-core Qualcomm 1.2GHz ...

    Here's some good news for current and future Sprint EVO 3D owners. It appears that applications pre-installed, often referred to as bloatware, can be uninstalled from the smartphone without the need of root access. Apparently, accessing the application list and simply pressing the Uninstall button will make you get rid of the apps you don't use nor like and regain some precious storage space bits. There's one application though that can't be removed and that's Sprint ID. That aside, props to Sprint or HTC for taking it to the next level. Source: AndroidCentral Via: AndroidGuys

    Apple fans may camp out for days in advance of the next iPhone or iPad release, hoping to be among the first to get a chance to score one of their soon-to-be-favorite gadgets at retail. While there's no denying that most other smartphone platforms have their share of devotees, we rarely see the same, special Apple brand of obsessive devotion. Best Buy may be hoping to inspire a similar sort of lust to be among the first to have a new smartphone with tomorrow's launch of the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint, announcing that its stores will be opening early for the event. While your local Best Buy most ...

    Yesterday we mentioned the Sprint EVO 3D arriving for early orders and that it already received its first ever update but it looks like it will need another update soon to fix what the first update seems to have broken. The shortcut for the dialer seems to have vanished from the lock screen and so it did from the list of applications. There's really no way of putting it back, neither by changing scenes nor rearranging the icons. The only workaround for the moment is to make a hard reset which will make it reappear so if you've got an EVO 3D and you applied its first update, check for the ...

    Yesterday, we looked at a special offer Sprint had put on the table for its Premier users, giving them opportunity to get their hands on an HTC EVO 3D a couple days before the rest of us lot. While they're not getting a huge lead time to exclusively enjoy their smartphones before Friday's launch, those who were quick to order are getting their EVO 3Ds today, just in time for the phone's first OTA update to arrive. With not much time to go before launch, Sprint had to make sure it was on its toes fulfilling orders for this offer; a day or two lost in prep-time and transit could leave these ...

    Sprint announced earlier this month that it would be bringing the HTC EVO 3D, and the glasses-free 3D display it's packing, to the US on June 24. While that's mere days away, you may have a shot to score the smartphone even sooner, if you're a Sprint Premier customer, that is. The carrier offers perks to its customers who meet certain requirements, either spending above a certain cutoff for a number of months, or being a long-standing Sprint customer regardless of your monthly bill. Those who fit the bill enjoy all sorts of discounts, as well as occasional opportunities like this one to ...

    From the very first time we saw the specs for the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint, it was promoted as supporting 3D video recording at 720p, and standard 2D recording at full 1080p. Now with the smartphone nearly upon us, those specs are getting a hasty revision, knocking all video recording down to 720p. After being contacted by testers who noticed the option to record in 1080p wasn't available, Sprint responded by apologizing and explaining that the mention of 1080p was "a typo in the spec sheet". A typo would be 1030p or 1080k, Sprint. This looks to either have been a miscommunication, or (and ...

    The HTC EVO 3D is finally coming to Sprint on June 24 after it was announced back in March and many were disappointed that the 3D smartphone didn't have a kickstand for comfy three-dimensional hands-free viewing. The desktop dock which just appeared over at Best Buy might be the solution to this and some more. Wearing a "coming soon" label, the HTC EVO 3D desktop dock will cost you $49.99 but it will hold your smartphone in a desktop angled manner allowing you to watch movies and pictures. It will also charge your smartphone while at it and it also uses the EVO 3D's MHL adaptor that ...

    The online smartphone simulator showing up for the Sprint HTC EVO 3D was a clear indication of things to come and the carrier has just announced the availability for the highly anticipated 3D smartphone from HTC. Referring to the smartphone as "America's first ‘glasses-free' 3D 4G device", the HTC EVO 3D will be available on Sprint starting June 24 (as rumored). It will cost $199.99 without tax and with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade (and one of Sprint's Everything Data plans plus a required $10 Premium Data add-on charge for smartphones). You can also pre-order the ...

    The HTC EVO 3D, rumored for sale around June 24 for $199 with contract or $499 outright, can now be seen in a RadioShack interactive simulator that lets you learn more about the device's features plus how to carry out certain functions. The EVO 4G is the first glasses-free 3D phone to land in the US. It's similar in a lot of ways to the HTC Sensation, which will be landing in the US around the same time as the EVO as the Sensation 4G on T-Mobile. Source: RadioShack

    HTC rolled out a new site for developers earlier today, and with it came more intrigue into the mystery surrounding the inevitable GSM version of the company's dual-core, qHD EVO 3D. As you can see above and below, the handset being used to illustrate the EVO 3D on one dev site banner is quite different from the two variants we've previously seen: the Sprint-branded one unveiled at CTIA in March and an unbranded doppelganger on HTC's global site which had its telltale specs page pulled down soon after being posted. Besides the obvious color change (and the curious use of an older Sense ...

    HTC's EVO 3D on Sprint should be here in a matter of weeks, so it's a good thing the smartphone finally got around to putting in an appearance with the good folks at the FCC, where it dropped a whole load of information, including some rarely-seen electrical schematics. In fact, the HTC cover letter it submitted to the FCC requested that the electrical schematics it divulged be withheld from publication. Either it's talking about a physical schematic rather than the logical one we're seeing, or someone messed up, because there are forty-three pages of circuit diagrams included with the ...

    HTC's EVO 3D on Sprint is up for pre-order, and Sprint's been talking about the 3D content it's loading the phone with, but when will the smartphone finally get here? While one rumor gave it a "rough" launch date of around June 4, a more recent leak puts it much later in the month. The latest backs up that claim, pegging the phone for a June 24 release. This information comes via a screenshot of an image of what purports to be an upcoming Radio Shack flyer. As you can see, we're a few steps removed from just a simple picture of a physical flyer, so treat this pic with the appropriate dose ...
