HTC EVO 3D

-Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor here at cnet.com and here at CTIA 2011 in Orlando, Florida, and I wanna show you one of Sprints' new phones they're announcing with the show. This is the HTC EVO 3D. Of course, this is an updated EVO line. It's the latest in that series. Few unique things about this phone are it does record and play 3D video and that's without the aid of glasses. Now, we've seen the phone like this before. We saw one at Mobile World Congress from LG that was the LG Optimus 3D. This is-- they're very much the same concept. Here on the back, you see those 2.5 megapixel cameras and on the front, you'll have that 1.3-megapixel camera that can be used for video chat. Also, you can take self portraits with it as well. Really, there's 2 cameras on the back [unk] here. On the side, there's a switch for changing between 3D video and 2D video. Also see a camera control here on the top. It comes with the 8-gig card. It will hold up to 32 gigs and there's 4 gigs in memory on the phone. Now, hence it does run Gingerbread, so that's nice sign. Nice to see more phones coming out with Gingerbread, but of course since it is a 3D video, I wanna give you a little demonstration of that. So, we'll just use-- we'll just choose the gallery here. So, the effect is gonna pretty subtle here. It won't really jump out of you, I mean; of course, 3D has supposed to do that. It's gonna be very much like the Optimus 3D. It's gonna be-- the things will kinda float off the screen. You will see some def. Of course, you don't need glasses as I said. So, you just need a minute to watch. So, I'll switch between photos and you see it still-- looks like a still photo at first and then we see that 3D effects pop in. I think it is kinda cool. It's definitely something that I can imagine myself using. I can imagine myself using it a lot. I don't think that it really provide an experience that's just gonna blow me away and just gonna change my smartphone experience, but I do think it's a pretty cool thing. It is really nice to have and it's good to see some innovation in that way. The phone has a 1.2 gigahertz processor, so it will be running pretty fast as all the Android applications you'd expect from Google. It has a personal organizer and of course WiFi, Bluetooth, messaging, e-mail, instant messaging. So, all of those things you'd expect on a smartphone are gonna be here. Is really is about that 3D-shooting video. So, as I said, shoot video on the back with a 3D camera. You don't have to shoot 3D, and you can take the 3D photos with those lenses on the back. I do like the effect of switching between homescreen. This is sort of like a cube, so you can go like that and you can see this sort of rotate around. It is running HTC Sense in addition to Gingerbread. Of course, that'll also means that if you pinch, you get the "Leap" feature which shows you everything, all the homescreen you have, you get up to 7, and you can just then go directly to the one you want by clicking it. So, it's a pretty feature, I think. I'm here at CTIA 2011. I'm Kent German with the HTC EVO 3D.
