HTC EVO 3D landing in Europe next month, two-stage shutter button and all (video)
Up till now, the ranks of 3D-capable smartphones were neatly organized by territory:
Japan had the Sharp Aquos SH-12C, the US had the HTC EVO 3D, and Europe had the LG Optimus 3D.
Now it's all getting a tiny bit messier (and more competitive!) with HTC's announcement that the EVO 3D
has boarded a transatlantic liner and is en route to the green shores of Europa. Available 'broadly' across the old continent,
this Android 2.3 handset touts a 4.3-inch display with qHD (540 x 960) resolution and
an added parallax barrier layer that allows it to deliver a glasses-free 3D effect.
We call it an effect because real 3D it ain't, but at least it'll allow you to review the three-dimensional pics you
snap with the included pair of 5 megapixel autofocus cameras. There's also a 1.2GHz dual-core
Snapdragon purring within for the performance obsessives and a generous 1730mAh battery --
perhaps the biggest advantage that we can see for this phone over the similarly specced (but 3D-less) Sensation.
Jump past the break for the full spec sheet and PR or hit up our review to learn just how awesome the EVO 3D's shutter button really is.
