HTC EVO 3D & HTC EVO View 4G Get Official Release Dates

HTC EVO 3D & HTC EVO View 4G Get Official Release Dates

Although we knew HTC's EVO View 4G tablet and EVO 3D smartphone were headed to Sprint at some point, we didn't know an official date. Now we do: On June 24, you'll be able to get your hands on the HTC EVO 3D ($199.99) and HTC EVO View 4G ($399.99), assuming you're willing to commit to a two-year contract.

Although June 24 isn't too far away, if you want assurance that you'll get the phone on launch day, you can preorder either of the upcoming devices by visiting a Sprint store. Current Sprint Premier customers will get the chance to purchase the HTC EVO 3D online three days before the national launch while supplies are available.

Glasses-Free 3D plus Sprint 4G

HTC EVO 3D also features dual 5-megapixel cameras, which can be used to capture high-quality conventional and stunning 3D images and videos, opening up new frontiers for user-generated content, social networking and streaming video.

Respected device critics agree Sprint has done it again with HTC EVO 3D. Here are a few of the accolades that poured in when it was announced in March:

  • LAPTOP Magazine honored HTC EVO 3D with its Best Smart Phone Award and the coveted Best in Show honor at CTIA this spring.

An Unparalleled Tablet Experience

HTC EVO View 4G brings the best of the EVO experience to a tablet design with a 7-inch touchscreen, 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and latest version of HTC Sense. It will launch with an Android 2.3 operating system (Gingerbread) and will be updated to Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) when it is available for a 7-inch tablet. As the perfect combination e-reader, media player and portable computing device, HTC EVO View 4G offers a premium entertainment experience with HD-like quality video and a rich web-browsing experience with the ability to browse the web on Flash-enabled sites.

Rate plans for the HTC EVO View start as low as $34.993 per month for 3GB of 3G data and unlimited 4G data usage while on the Sprint network. Unlimited text, picture and video messaging are included at no charge. Additional plans, including 3G-only plans, are available to meet customers' needs.

Additionally, for a limited time, any customer who purchases HTC EVO View 4G will receive the HTC Scribe(TM) digital pen (otherwise sold separately) at no charge with a two-year service agreement - providing an additional savings of $79.99 on their purchase.

Optional add-on services include GPS Navigation for $2.99 per day or $10 per month and the Mobile Hot Spot option for $29.99 per month (excluding taxes and surcharges) supporting up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously.

I just got my Samsung Epic why must Sprint and HTC tempt me with such a device? Worry not friends my will is strong and my bank account dangerously low. Still if I had the option I would switch up because I loved my HTC Touch which I have had for a number of years until it died on me completely.

I personally Love my EVO 4G phone so I am sure these products will be a hit. I am happy with my phone other than the battery life so I won't be upgrading.

Then why did you buy the Epic and not the EVO?

I'm a Gold Sprint Premier member and I'm at my 1 year new phone at new customer price point (as of 2 days ago), so I will be ordering this on the 21st.

Sprint does priority shipping, I got my EVO hand delivered two days after I ordered it on a Sat last year.

Dadodgeson, thanks I'll try to stay strong. The only reason I got the Samsung Epic was because it was on sale at the store I work at.

Heh, wish i could afford such items...still though, not a big fan of 3D. The View looks interesting, but it would still be nice to see these tablets in a lower price point. Its 400 with contract? A bit high if you ask me.

No thanks to both, not in to 3D and don't really need a tablet now. But they are both real nice, i would love to have the HTC EVO View 4G but got no money and isn't really a need for one :(.

3d or not... The specs speak for themselves on this pocket sized beast.

1gb of ram.

nuff said... I have the original EVO and am due for an upgrade in Feb. I will see what the summer, the holidays, CES and Barcelona bring us before I have to decide... But if my upgrade was available to me today... I would jump on the EVO3D.

Hello There,

Can i get HTC EVO 3D  in India. If yes, how much cost of  HTC EVO 3D.

The EVO and the Thunderbolt (basically the same phone, it seems) have been some of my favorite phones yet. I'm anxious to see what the EVO 3D has to offer - I'm hoping for better battery life most of all. The 3D is cool and all, but I don't know how much I'd actually use it.

HTC makes great products, so I'll also be watching the various tablets coming out from them.
