HTC EVO 3D clears the FCC; June 24 release looking good
Sprint's HTC EVO 3D has gotten a step closer to its release after passing the FCC's strict testing procedures. The smartphone's filings showed up on the commision's web page just recently, and as an added bonus, we are also being treated to a glimpse of the handset's internal schematics.

Digging through the documents we see all the hardware specifications that we expected – MSM8660 chipset and support for Sprint's CDMA, EvDO, and WiMAX networks. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are also on board, of course, and a nice little touch is the 3-axis gyroscope, which will give a little more sense of awareness to the EVO 3D.

Now that there is one less obstacle in the way, it looks like the alleged EVO 3D release date may turn out to be correct after all. If you are impatient to get your hands on some glasses-free 3D goodness, your days of anticipation may be coming to an end in about three weeks time.

Hey this is good, the ship is cruising in the right direction. June 24th can't come soon enough!

I'd like to believe that the Evo3d is coming out soon, but thus far here we have not got the training model in yet. We have not gotten any training on this device as of yet either. Finally we havn't recieved any posters or pamplets. This all points to either A) The employer dropping the ball and not giving us enough resources to train and promote the item OR B) The item will not be released on the 24th. I'm gonna lean towards B in this case, it just doesn't seem like there has been anything stated officially and no actions by the carrier reflects a upcoming launch.

Sprint doesn't usually pass out training on the big phones coming out until a couple weeks before the release. Thats what they did with the EVO...Likely to avoid leaks of information. Of course they have to give training some time before the release date so employees can sell, but they generally seem to hold off until the last couple weeks before release.
