EVO 3D

The SIM-free price of the European (GSM) HTC EVO 3D has been reduced once again by one UK retailer. Following its initial price cut to £250 last month, ASDA Direct has now dropped the EVO's price tag to £229.00, making it considerably cheaper than just about every other high-end handset out there. When the EVO 3D launched in Europe last August, it was priced at over £500 off-contract, so this represents a significant mark-down (and perhaps says a little about sales of the device on that side of the pond).

The EVO 3D's internals may no longer be bleeding-edge, but it's still a high-end product -- specs include a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 3D display at qHD (960x540) resolution. On the software side, you'll find Android 2.3 Gingerbread alongside HTC Sense 3.0, and the phone has been promised an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich later in the year.

Even if you don't care about 3D (and we're mostly indifferent ourselves, these days), this is still the most smartphone muscle you're going to get for £229. If you're tempted, you'll find more info at the source link.

"HTC is committed to re-releasing at least one low def phone every week."

HTC's press release went on to say, "HD is stupid. Everyone wants gangsta rap."

The Evo 3d is a damn good phone. I still have this phone but currently using the Galaxy S2 Epic Touch. Miss the build quality, using sense and the qhd screen. Comparing the build quality of the 2 phones, the Evo 3d feels like a $600 dollar device. And honestly they are both on par with each other as far as speed but the Epic touch is smoother.

Thanks so much for this tip off! I was waiting for a bargain high end phone to drop below the £230 mark and this will work just fine :)

Time to replace the ZTC Blade of mine.
