Phone to ship June 4
More details have emerged about the price of the new HTC EVO 3D. A Radio Shack ad leaked by inyofacerecords indicates that the the smart phone will sell for $200 with a new or extended Sprint contract or $500 without one. Radio Shack is offering an additional $100 off the phone with trade-in.
As part of the package, the EVO 3D comes with an appropriately 3D version of The Green Hornet preloaded. RadioShack also will be offering The Black Eye Peas' "Phenomenon" as a bonus download for a limited time.
The EVO 3D is an early entrant into the 3D smartphone market. Its auto-stereoscopic 540x960, 4.3-inch screen does not require the use of traditional 3D glasses. It also comes with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, Android 2.3, and a 3D camera to shoot HD video in 3D at 720p.
To get the special pricing and $100 trade-in, Radio Shack will need a customer to sign on for a new or upgraded two-year agreement with a smartphone plan. Leaks have had the Evo 3D available on June 4.
