Mild-mannered high-end smartphone,
or a three-dimensional breakthrough?
There are a couple ways to look at the Sprint HTC EVO 3D. One is that it's a high-end smartphone, with the latest hardware and software you can get. Another is that it's a high-end smartphone with the latest hardware and software -- and 3D recording and playback technology.
There's a larger discussion to be had regarding 3D recording and playback on smartphones. Do we really want it? Do we need it? Are we just seeing first-generation tech growing pains? That's a discussion we've been having for some time, and we'll continue to have it.
But back to the EVO 3D. It's one of the first dual-core-processor phones to be released by Qualcomm (along with the HTC Sensation). It's one of the first to run the new HTC Sense 3.0 user interface. Oh, and it's the first 3D smartphone to be released in the United States. And it's following up one of the hottest phones of the past year or so in the EVO 4G. So it's got a lot going for it, and lofty expectations. Will it live up to them? Find out after the break.
