HTC EVO 3D Gets Pricing via the Shack – Still no release date
The HTC EVO was the first 4G device to grace the world with its super fast speeds and terrible battery life. Since the dawn of the EVO 4G many devices have released under the same form factor 4G in tow or not. The next logical step in the EVO’s evolutionary process is a refresh or part duex if you will. HTC has remolded their beloved EVO with some 3D powers and a reasonable price tag. The original EVO 4G was announced in March of last year and released in June. The EVO 3D was announced March this year and has yet to release. Whose taking bets for a June – July launch?
While the launch of the EVO 3D is still unconfirmed it would make sense that a June or July release date is more than likely. Pre orders on the EVO 3D from Sprint and Radio Shack has begun last week and it seems that a bit more detail on the new 3D device has surfaced on the interwebs.
