[ENG]HTC EVO 3D announced for sprint

There's not exactly a lot of surprises left at this point, but Sprint has just officially announced that it will be the exclusive carrier for the brand new HTC EVO 3D. The standout feature here is of course that 4.3-inch, glasses-free 3D display, but the phone is far from just a gimmick -- you'll also get a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, WiMAX connectivity (including mobile hotspot support), dual 5 megapixel cameras with a flash 'round back, a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera, support for 1080p video playback via the HDMI out (or 720p for 3D content), and Android 2.3 with Sense. Still no word on pricing, but you can look for it to be available sometime this summer.
Don't much care for the 3d, but i love the qhd screen and dual core snapdragon, so glad they didn't go with tegra 2.

I'll pass on this one. I like my 2D Evo 4G.
3D sucks at the movies so I'm guessing that it also sucks on a phone.

That's cool and all but I don't see the need for a 3D display on a phone.

You're thinking too short sighted.

Phones have limited real estate for a display. If the 3D display is good and someone develops a great GUI, it would be very useful to be able to present more data to the user.

Ideas:
Current there are seperate windows for your list of apps. What if we could see stacks of apps instead?
How about a GPS with elevation?

If they stacked how would you be able to choose the app you wanted to start? Maybe some different swipe gestures or something? And I have no doubt that this will lead to some pretty innovating things but right now I just don't see the use of it. The GPS with elevation would be pretty neat especially if you're in an unknown city with level changes that cause a normal gps to not be so accurate. I've had problems with this in the past in a few cities.

Hmmm...I think I'll still wait and see if anything else pops up for phones from Sprint. This looks great, but not sure about the "3D" aspect.
