voting for the Sidekick 4G - a whole new HIGH for mid-range phones. New standard in full QWERTY phones! still have Qs, but many were answered at CTIA. Hope it comes out before the May 31 Microsoft/Danger DOA date for older Sidekicks.

I am the only one who feels 3D phones are nothing but a cheap marketing ploy, just like 3D TV and Crest 3D White toothpaste?

are you kidding, Crest 3D White is the best!! I am excited for 3D because it gives you more options (if you don't like it just turn it off). Besides, if it looks like the Nintendo 3DS then I will be happy :)

is the phone screen its self 3D or does it just take 3D photos and videos?

3d is not a "marketing ploy" but something new to add to phones in 2011. something that you cant get out of simply dowloading an app. i believe its more "innovative" than a "scam".

It may look interesting, but it's still a gimmick. If phone makers weren't already shoving it at us saying "look at this! isn't it cool?!", trying to one-up each other, would we be clambering for it?

Id say the EVO 3D, however with plans to get the Thunderbolt i really dont think a network change would idea me to leave the network, i have no problem with Sprint but with the 4G compare verizon has the cake and eats it too, plus no kickstand! wtf....ohh well, great device but at this time in my life i can do more with the T-Bolt
