The European version of the HTC EVO 3D has suddenly appeared at a number of UK retailers, following recent delays which resulted in the phone being unceremoniously dumped by Vodafone UK a few weeks ago. With no network-subsidized option available just yet, the only way to get hold of HTC's stereoscopic monster right now is by forking out for the SIM-free version, which retails at a slightly eye-watering £500 (~$815). However, that gets you a potent mix of bleeding-edge smartphone technologies, including a 3D qHD (960x540) display, a 3D recording setup, a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM, not to mention HTC's latest Sense 3.0.
