  • 4.3-inch 3D qHD capacitive 960 x 540 px display
  • 1730 mAh battery
  • 4GB of internal memory
  • 8GB microSD card pre-installed (expandable to 32GB)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • Dual 5 MP rear cameras (for 3D)
  • 1.3 MP front-facing camera
  • 2D video recording at 1080p
  • 3D video recording at 720p

Additionally, Sprint announced that the HTC EVO View 4G -- essentially Sprint's version of the HTC Flyer 7-inch tablet -- will be also be available June 24, for $399. And Sprint's done us a solid here, offering the Scribe stylus for free. (It's otherwise sold separately.) Check out our hands-on with the EVO View 4G from CTIA.
