CTIA 2011: New Phones and Tablets Arrive

HTC EVO 3D (Sprint)

HTC and Sprint held a lengthy press conference at CTIA 2011 earlier today, and the EVO 3D smartphone was one of two new products announced. Building off the success of the original HTC EVO and its smaller brother, the EVO Shift, this new touchscreen device has some serious firepower. The WiMAX-equipped EVO 3D packs a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, a 4.3-inch, 960x540 resolution qHD display, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage (with a microSD that supports 32 GB cards), and HDMI out. The device can both capture and play 1080p video, and it's all wrapped up in Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

The marquee feature here are the dual 5 megapixel cameras on the back that allow for 3D images and video to be captured/recorded. The 3D video is "limited" to 720p, but it should still look pretty spectacular. The 3D images and video are displayed on the screen, glasses free, thanks to a parallax barrier (similar to the Nintendo 3DS). There's also a 1.3 megapixel sensor on the front for video chat.

    EVO 3D looks pretty sweet.
  • Any chance to see this 4G Nexus S outside the US?

    I've been watching this Nexus S blog but they're not mentioning anything (it concerns the Netherlands, btw).

    Would be cool though!

    jack5673d...crap. why wont they put a better cam on it like 8 or 12 mpixAnswer: $$$. The better the sensor, the more expensive, so putting two on the back is going to be a little pricey.

    randomstarWhy am I not seeing anything winphone7 on verizon? been waiting for that and not getting.My guess is that Verizon is pretty happy with its massive Android push, so they aren't chomping at the WP7 bit quite yet.

    Seriously? I am in no way a fan of apple, but Apple has had their display at 960x640 ever since the release of the IPhone 4...And android devices are just now getting this qHD thing at 960x540? On a way bigger screen no less. Dont get me wrong, i love the screen on my mytouch 4G, but i was really kinda hoping this generations of Android devices could surpass the standard apple set. Furthermore, 3D sucks in TV's, 3D sucks on Nintendo's, and 3D will suck on phones and tablets. I agree with an above poster. If nokia can do 8 and 12 MP cameras that take really very nice pictures, id way rather be seeing some of them than dual 5 MP 3D cameras.
