The rumors became true! HTC today announced the arrival of the HTC EVO 3D Android 2.3/Gingerbread smartphone in Europe. Delivering the same ultimate glasses-free 3D experience as the U.S. version, the stylishly rugged HTC EVO 3D, with the latest HTC Sense experience, makes it easy to capture and share stunning 3D home movies and stills with friends and family. HTC Watch is also available to owners of this multimedia powerhouse, allowing users to enjoy Hollywood blockbusters alongside their own 3D movies. The stunning stereoscopic display means that 3D effects can be enjoyed naturally as images and video burst from the screen, free of the burden of 3D glasses.
Relive precious moments as if you were there and watch videos captured by HTC Evo 3D's dual 5 megapixel cameras shimmer and dance with depth. Entertainment takes on a whole new dimension, with 3D films, videos, pictures and games leaping from the 4.3" qHD screen. This immersive 3D effect, coupled with stereo surround sound, creates a new world to explore and share. HTC EVO 3D is driven by a powerful, 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which not only supports brilliant 3D but also delivers a fast and responsive browsing experience, instant capture of images - perfect for recording fast-paced action - and playing back smooth, HD (720p) video.
Complementing the HTC EVO 3D's design is the latest HTC Sense experience. Plunge into 3D menus and customize the active lockscreen, which becomes a real-time window to your most important content - from photos to your latest social network feeds. Whether it's E-Mail, social networking or surfing the internet, the active lockscreen becomes a customizable gateway that lets you instantly jump to your favorite applications with just one gesture. HTC's iconic Weather app also returns, letting you soar through the clouds and bask in the sun, with beautiful, new full-screen 3D animations.
HTC EVO 3D's two 5 megapixel cameras are enhanced with new features to help you capture the perfect moment as you see it. Switch effortlessly between 2D and 3D depending on your mood, and add a new creative perspective to your images with Tiltshift Effect - selectively blurring parts of the scene to give subjects the impression of scale models. The camera also performs well in low light thanks to a wide, f/2.2 maximum aperture and videos are recorded in crystal clear 720p resolution, at up to 30 frames per second, making the HTC EVO 3D perfect for recording evenings out with friends.
Tapping into HTC's trademark design language, the HTC EVO 3D's premium look and feel is enhanced by its slender dimensions and striking dual camera housing. The rear of HTC EVO 3D is sculpted with smooth lines that make the handset look rugged, yet feel natural in the palm of your hand.
The HTC EVO 3D will be broadly available in Europe from July. In Germany, the HTC EVO 3D will retail for 699 Euro.
