HTC EVO 3D brings glasses-free 3D to Sprint

3D is a buzz word today, but HTC did a fine job of bringing it to a handheld device and capturing 3D images and video is a fun thing to do on the EVO 3D. That said, even if we took that away the device is a solid new generation Android smartphone that Sprint customers should seriously consider.

3D is a buzz word today, but HTC did a fine job of bringing it to a handheld device and capturing 3D images and video is a fun thing to do on the EVO 3D. That said, even if we took that away the device is a solid new generation Android smartphone that Sprint customers should seriously consider.

Check out my full ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones post with a video walk through the device and 3D YouTube video captured on the EVO 3D.

The inside box is colorful, especially compared to the white out box. Inside you will find a charger and headset, along with some pamphlets.

The EVO 3D fits well in my hand and is narrow enough to appeal to my senses even with a large 4.3 inch display.

The traditional Android touch sensitive buttons are below the display with mic and lanyard openings along the bottom.

A large headset speaker opening with indicator lights is above the display with a front facing camera over on the right side.
