UK retailers slash HTC EVO 3D prices
When we reviewed the GSM version of HTC's EVO 3D back in August, our main complaint was the exorbitant price of the phone. On-contract deals were nowhere to be found, and at the time of review SIM-free prices came in at over £500 (~$830), considerably more than the similarly-specced HTC Sensation.
Now, at least two British retailers have decided to significantly cut their asking prices for the device -- Expansys is currently selling the EVO for £284.99 with free shipping, while ASDA Direct has it for £249.99. These prices make the EVO 3D notably cheaper than the Sensation, which currently sells for around £350 SIM-free. The more expensive device also lacks the EVO's 3D display, and packs a smaller amount of RAM (768MB vs. 1GB).
So if you're in the market for a high-end HTC phone, an EVO 3D for around £250 represents great value -- five months ago this thing was selling for double that amount.

£250 = $393.99 (Canadian Dollars) Rogers website is offering it for $549.99 off contract. (again Canadian Dollars)
Unless of course you lock into a 3 year contract, then it's only a penny! Even a 2 year contract they still want $449. Me thinks if you want this phone, you could probably buy it overseas, get it shipped, and STILL save money!
