When Sprint launched the HTC EVO 4G last summer, the company instantly became the provider of one of the most desirable Android phones. Suddenly, every other phone was compared to the EVO 4G and most of those other phones didn’t look good by comparison. The calendar pages keep flipping and the EVO 4G is still a great phone, but it is no longer the most powerful Android phone.
To remedy that, Sprint will soon be rolling out the HTC EVO 3D, a massive re-fresh to the EVO 4G that includes – among other things – a 3D camera and a display that allows you to see 3D without glasses. So how will the new EVO compare with the original EVO? Just the name “EVO” has come to signify a high standard in cell phone performance, so anything new that bears the name will be scrutinized against that standard.
With specs that push the limits of any phone on the market today, the HTC EVO 3D just might keep Sprint at the top of the EVO wars.
