Sprint revises down HTC EVO 3D video capture specs; party with the EVO 3D and Radio Shack
It is unfortunate, but a typo in the specs sheet for the HTC EVO 3D made it appear as though the phone could record and playback video at 1080p in both 2D and 3D. Sprint announced the correction on Thursday, saying that the specs sheet should say that the HTC EVO 3D can capture video up to 720p and playback up to 1080p in both 2D and 3D. The model still offers playback at the higher resolution, so we wouldn't imagine that this would be a dealbreaker for anyone.

As we reported, the HTC EVO 3D is expected to launch on June 24th at a price of $199.99 with a 2-year contract. On the eve of the launch, Radio Shack is having a party in Los Angeles from 8pm to 11pm PDT. A surprise guest performance is listed on the bill and it seems that the Green Hornet's car, the Black Beauty (no, not the BlackBerry!), will be featured. There is one major miscue on the invitation-there is no address listed. We know that there is more than one Radio Shack in LA, so you might want to check the yellow pages to see which location will be hosting the festivities.

they should have made it a 12megpix camera instead. sprint should have made their flagship a topnotch phone in all aspects...they should have made a average 3d phone to see how 3d would be taken in by the consumer....not a good idea to dumb down their money maker

probly would not run as well and be choppy. Thats a lot of processor power neede for that. Another thing is that megapixal does not mean quality thy higher you go.

I don't understand why it can't record 1080p 2D video like it's sister (the Sensation) can?!?

I'm sure there will be an OTA so it can record 1080p 2d video

People EVERY phone when it first comes out is NOT perfect. There will be MANY over the air updates to fix or improve the phones performance. I think it's all going to be addressed & fixed. The Samsung Galaxy S II is the most powerful phone out & if I am correct it has received a couple of over the air updates to correct & improve the phones performance. So that is just the nature of the phone business. The R&D department can only test so much. The real life scenarios can never be duplicated in a lab. So I am sure once the phone is released there will be prompt updates, especially from one of the MOST reputable corporations in the world HTC! This 1080p issue will be addressed & corrected. This phone is getting good reviews from reputable websites, & yes the 3D might be gimmicky but it’s still fun do to from what I read. The phones performance is the actual highlight. I can’t wait to put CM7 on this beast & really see it fly!
