Be interesting to see how battery life is on this EVO for movie watching as I remember seeing people with ice cheast size battery pack upgrades to keep their EVO charged for the day.

Still neat to see 3D on handheld device.

I am sure the battery life will suck my normal EVO barely gets through a couple hours of use weather it be voice calls texting surfing the internet or playing a game it does not seem to matter. Looking forward to the review on HH when it is released.

The release date on this one is weird I have heard conflicting statements on it. One big one is Radio Shack has been selling them (Preorder) for at least a week. I have also heard that they have sold all the preorder's they are allowed which I would think would be a significant amount. I also hear BB has them for preorder. It is making me wonder what will happen on release if the Radioshack thing is true. That would have to be a large number of phones.

One thing also that gets me on this is the screen. Ok the Sensation and the EVO 3D are basically supposedly the same minus or plus the 3D camera and a couple gigs of memory (internal storage). However from what I have seen is that the Samsung Galaxy S 2 has a better screen especially when it is in indirect view. How does a screen with 3D capabilities have an issue with indirect viewing? I mean the screen on the EVO 3D and the Sensation have the same resolution and are supposed to even be from the same manufacturer so this makes no sense to me.
