HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO View 4G officially launch on Sprint today

HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO View 4G officially launch on Sprint today
In case you have forgotten, or you are not a Sprint Premier customer, the first 3D-enabled phone to hit the US, the HTC EVO 3D, and the company's first tablet effort in the US, the HTC EVO View 4G, are launching for all current and future Sprint customers today, starting 8am, when the stores open, and online.

The HTC EVO 3D uses a parallax barrier screen overlay, which means that you don't need any dorky 3D glasses to enjoy the third dimension, and you can also turn it off, if it gets in your way. What remains then, is one of the best Android handsets of the season - 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, 4.3" qHD display with 540x960 pixels, perfect for reading small text, dual 5MP cameras that record up to 720p in 3D, and Full HD 1080p in plain ol' 2D video, the works.

Not to mention the newly-minted Sense UI 3.0, with its active lock screen, and incredibly fast shot-to-shot times. The HTC EVO 3D is the reasonable $199 with a two-year contract, while Sprint's unlimited data, texting and calling plan goes for $69.99, plus the $10 Premium Data surcharge. Adding to the handset's charm is the fact that you can uninstall the carrier-loaded applications without rooting the device.

The HTC EVO View 4G, on the other hand, comes at $399, which buys you a WiMAX-enabled version of the excellent HTC Flyer 7-inch tablet, running Android Gingerbread for now, with Sense UI for tablets. Honeycomb has already been released for 7" slates, so we hope HTC is hard at work on the upgrade.

Still, you get a 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, and all the HTC Scribe technology you can stomach for drawing or taking notes directly on the display with the capacitive stylus pen, which will be offered for free with the first HTC EVO View 4Gs, while supplies last, additional $79.99 of savings. The data add-ons for the tablet start at $34.99 for 3GB of 3G data, and unlimited 4G in areas where available, when tacked on an eligible voice plan.

The tablet's marketing campaign starts in full swing as well, with a cameo appearance at the BET Awards show this Sunday, the 26th, when the celebrities will use an HTC EVO View 4G, instead of envelopes, to announce the winners.

Are you getting any of these two summer jams?

No the real question has nothing to do with the Motorola Photon 4g, The EVO 3D IS SPRINT'S FLAGSHIP DEVICE THE EVO BRAND HAS LEAD THE WAY FROM DAY ONE MOTO SHOULD BE GLAD TO BE ABOARD. I brought my Evo 3d on day one friday and all I can say is I am simply AMAZED AT ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT AND THAT'S BATTERY LIFE...Whatever reviews were given was made based on just putting the battery that was given to the reviewer in the phone it'self none of those batteries were ever conditioned when they decided to conduct there overall review of the device. If your gonna talk about real world usage then in the real world batteries MUST BE CONDITIONED WHEN FIRST PURCHASED NOT JUST PLACED IN THE PHONE THEN YOU GIVE A SORRY REVIEW....THAT JUST DOESN'T CUT IT AND I'M NOT SPEAKING OF PHONEARENA...THIS EXACTLY WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED IN MY REAL WORLD USAGE ON DAY ONE AFTER MY FIRST CYCLE OF CONDITIONING MY BATTERY...Honestly, People won't realize what they missed out on. The Evo 3d as of today is the best android device on the market. The biggest feature that matters most is exactly where the evo 3d hurts most smartphones that's the battery. In real world testing how we all use our devices is what determines exactly what kind of battery life you will recieve so based on that it will always depend on the user him/herself. But if your a current evo 4g user then you know exactly how to tweak and extend your overall battery life and if you know those things and apply some of the techniques then trust me you will go VERY FAR WITH THE EVO 3D. I brought my evo 3d on friday from bestbuy the battery was at half when purchased I allowed the battery to drain down to 3% then placed it on charge for the first time for 9.5 hrs from 8pm to 5:30am saturday morning. My evo 3d was still going strong at 7pm saturday night without any tweaking of the devices at 7pm I was at 27% at which time I used the power saver mode and was able to go another 2hrs till 9pm which at that time I was at 17% I turned my device off and started my second phase of charging. The point here is pretty clear the Evo 3d straight out of the box without any tweaking of the settings gave me 14hrs of battery life till 7pm then an extra 2hrs till 9pm which was a grandtotal of 16plus hrs and was still at 17% when I turned it off. Bottomline here THIS IS DEFINATELY NO EVO 4G THIS DEVICE BLOWS THE EVO 4G OUT OF THE WATER IN THE MOST IMPORTANT CATAGORY AND THAT IS BATTERY LIFE.

I was never able to go anywhere when I had my evo 4g without my 2batteries and charger now I dont have to carry my charger WHICH IS VERY BIG...As a Evo 3d owner If I tweaked my setting on my device even further animations to some, screen brightness to halfway, email syncing to 4hrs, then this device will go FOR A VERY LONG TIME. Htc SCORES A MAJOR HOMERUN just based on the native battery management application/power saver mode as well as the native task manager application these native services on the device helps evo owners in so many ways because these are applications that would have been download from the android market that the manufracturer has included in the device which means it is optimized to work FAR BETTER THAN ANY APPLICATION DOWNLOADED TO YOUR DEVICE FROM THE ANDROID MARKET. That will help any EVO 3D OWNER WHO

I can't stop messing around with our store demo 3D. It is blowing me away everytime I pick it up. Thank you HTC and Sprint for carrying this.
