Like the LG Optimus 3D on Optus, the EVO 3D has a 1.2GHz processor, dual 5MP cameras that can capture 720p video in 3D, and a 4.3-inch touchscreen that’s auto-stereoscopic: you don’t need glasses to get the depth effect. However, HTC has also blessed it with a killer resolution of 540×960. Quite a tasty little Gingerbread (Android 2.3) treat indeed.
When Gizmodo US reviewed the Evo 3D, they had some concerns about the 3D camera and screen:
“I don’t want to have to spend minutes making sure the EVO 3D’s dual lenses are creating an appreciable 3D effect. And I sure as hell don’t want to then have my retinas bludgeoned by its horrid screen afterwards. (The 3D mode can be switched off via a hardware toggle, and HTC’s Gingerbread interface skin doesn’t have any 3D crap itself though.)”
As has become frustratingly standard, Telstra won’t announce pricing until closer to launch in September. You can however, pre-register over at [Telstra]Update: Vodafone is also getting the EVO 3D soon, but won’t say when.
Also: Telstra mentioned that its stores now have stock of the Samsung Galaxy SII and Sony Ericsson Xperia neo. So have it.
