HTC Evo 3D announced: the Optimus 3D has company

HTC Evo 3D announced: the Optimus 3D has companyJust a few days ago we heard that HTC was working on its own 3D smartphone to take on LG's Optimus 3D, and now it's here: the HTC Evo 3D.

Announced at CTIA in Florida, the 3D-loving Evo 3D is only for the US at present, but gives us plenty to look forward to when HTC brings a similar device to the UK.

Just like the Optimus 3D it uses the auto-stereoscopic form of 3D tech – you don't need glasses, in other words – and boasts a powerhouse spec and a massive 4.3in 960 x 540 screen.

All the better to view 3D video with, and you get twin-5MP cameras so you can shoot your own at 720p, or 1080p if you go ordinary 2D. Like on the Optimus 3D you can turn 3D on and off with a switch.

A dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor should provide sufficient grunt for most jobs, and it's backed by a formidable 1730mAh battery. No surprises to see Android Gingerbread on board, and it's 4G-capable too to plug into the fast-growing 4G infrastructure in the US.

As such, it's not being earmarked for release on these shores at this point, but HTC are generally good to us here in the UK so we'll hopefully be seeing something similar make its way here before too long.

Glad to see they picked a new wallpaper for the promo shot. I get heady looking at Samsung's AMOLED screens - so the idea of a glaring faux 3D screen makes me a tad wary.
Still... Interesting.
I wonder where the networks stand on this 3D trend (lite)? Inevitably, more data will have to be shifted from A to B as more complex online content will be thrown at those 3D devices.
