It's been a few months since we first handled the Sprint HTC EVO 3D. And at the time, the software was far from finished. But we're just a mere week or so away from the official public launch of HTC's first 3D-capable smartphone, and it's time to give it a thorough what-for.

Hardware-wise, the EVO 3D feels a tad slimmer than its predecessor, though it's a tad taller. We're also very much impressed by the textured soft-touch coating on the battery cover. As you'll see in the video, you're going to get your grubby fingers all over the camera lenses when using the EVO 3D as a phone, and we're a little worried that the flush lenses will become horribly scratched -- just like with our EVO 4G.

Software-wise, it's got Android 2.3.3 and the new Sense 3.0, which we're very much impressed by. (And you can hear it in our voice.) All in all, it looks like the EVO 3D's going to be the Summer phone to beat on Sprint.
