Sprint today announced the upcoming availability of the HTC EVO 3D. The HTC EVO 3D takes the - according to Sprint - mobile multimedia experience to a new level, providing the ability to capture and view in 3D and share at 4G speeds, offering consumers the ultimate glasses-free 3D experience. Sprint also announced HTC EVO View 4G, introducing a tablet to the award-winning EVO family. Built on the Android 2.3/Gingerbread, the HTC EVO 3D features America's first QHD 3D 4.3" display and a powerful 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor.
The HTC EVO 3D also features dual 5 megapixel cameras, which can be used to capture both high-quality conventional and stunning 3D images and videos, opening up new frontiers for user-generated content, social networking and streaming video.
As 3D has become more sought-after in both movie theaters and family rooms, the ability to enjoy 3D on a wireless phone – 3D glasses-free – will change the way customers interact with their devices. According to The NPD Group's 3D 360° Monitor, consumers show a high degree of interest in working with personal media in 3D (with one-third saying they would like to take photos in 3D).
With integrated 3D HD (720p) video capture, 4G speeds, and the latest version of the acclaimed HTC Sense experience, HTC EVO 3D makes it possible to become part of the action and then easily and seamlessly post high-quality video to YouTube or Facebook, or share moments in real time over the Internet live, via Qik. Its integrated DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) capability makes it fast and easy to share stored music, pictures and user-generated HD video wirelessly with other DLNA-certified home electronics, including HDTVs, monitors, digital cameras, printers and more. Using an HDMI cable (sold separately) makes it possible to also share user-created 3D video content via a 3D TV.
Last but not least, the HTC EVO 3D features a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera for video chat, 3G/4G mobile hotspot capabilities, supporting up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously, Android Market, Google mobile services such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps with Navigation, Google Calendar, Voice Actions and YouTube as well as 4 GB internal memory and 1 GB RAM which can be expanded with microSD cards up to 32 GB. Also onboard are WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth A2DP and integrated GPS.
The HTC EVO 3D will be available exclusively to Sprint customers this summer. The pricing will be shared closer to launch. HTC has not yet announced plans to release a GSM-based sister model.
