Yesterday Sprint posted the teasers for two new 4G-enabled devices and today But the good news is that one of them, the HTC EVO 4G has a global GSM version too. The other gadget is the HTC EVO View 4G Android tablet, a Flyer variant. The Sprint branded gadgets are 4G-enabled (WiMAX). The EVO 3D seems to be a 3D-enabled Pyramid, which is quite interesting.
The HTC EVO 3D features a 4.3" qHD screen that shows glasses-free 3D imagery and two 5MP cameras to capture stereoscopic stills and video. 3D videos are shot in 720p resolution but 3D stills are limited to 2MP for some reason.
The EVO 3D packs the first ever (official) Snapdragon dual-core CPU and also the first ever 1.2GHz Snapdragon. It packs 1GB of RAM, running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense.
The phone measures 126mm x 65mm x 12.05mm and packs a mammoth 1730mAh battery - it weighs a hefty 170 grams though. The HTC EVO 3D packs MHL (the port that combines USB and HDMI), Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, microSD card slot and other goodies.
Sprint's HTC EVO 3D will be launching this summer (no pricing info yet) with CDMA and WiMAX "4G", but there's global a GSM/UMTS/HSPA version up on HTC's site too (there's no launch info on it unfortunately). The HTC Pyramid is basically a non-3D version of the EVO 3D (though they look slightly different) so we'll see how that pans out.
Sprint and Blockbuster have partnered and Blockbuster on Demand will be preinstalled on the HTC EVO 4G and will offer 3D movies, available on the same day as the Blu-ray release.
Sprint will also be launching the HTC EVO View 4G, which is a Flyer that speaks CDMA and WiMAX. The aluminum body of the View 4G is black unlike the silvery chassis of the Flyer.
That aside, the two tablets share the same specs - 1.5GHz single-core processor, Android Gingerbread, 7" 1024x600-pixel screen, two cameras (5MP main, 1.3MP secondary), Scribe technology, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n.
The HTC EVO View 4G is coming to Sprint in the summer too, with CDMA and WiMAX connectivity (and hot-spot functionality) but there's nothing on the price yet. The GSM version, the Flyer should start hitting stores in April.
