HTC Evo 3D 'glasses-free' smartphone, Evo View tablet coming June 24 to Sprint

Matt Hamblen, Computerworld | June 6, 2011
Sprint announced Monday that its first 4G tablet device in the U.S., as well as the new HTC Evo 3D smartphone that provides 3D viewing without special glasses, will be available on June 24.

The glasses-free Evo 3D runs a 1.2GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor, putting it at the top end of processing power for today's smartphones. It has dual 5-megapixel cameras on the rear, making it possible to capture 3D images and videos.

A Sprint Evo 3D spec sheet shows that it has a stronger lithium-ion battery than many smartphones on the market, at 1730 mAh. It includes 4G of internal storage and a microSD card slot that can expand that capability to 32GB.

Sprint offers the Evo 3D service for $79.99 a month, which includes a $10 data add-on charge for smartphones. Mobile hotspot capability is the same as for the View -- $29.99 a month for up to eight Wi-Fi-ready devices.

Customers can order either device in advance with the purchase of a $50 gift card per device. Sales of the Evo 3D for Sprint Premier customers begins June 21, three days before it's available to other customers.
