HTC intros EVO 3D and EVO View 4G at CTIA 2011

So incase you didn’t already know, CTIA 2011 is on right now over in the U.S, and HTC has just announced some new Android devices over there.

HTC EVO 3D

One of the things HTC launched is the EVO 3D, and of course is capable of exactly what the name suggests, 3D. Glasses free 3d content, dual five megapixel cameras on the rear for 3D video capture, a 1.3 megapixel forward facing camera, WiMAX, a 1.2GHZ dual core processor and of course HD playback, 1080p infact over an HDMI output. Basically sums up the EVO 3D, the specs on this phone look quite advanced, the only thing I could see being a slight problem is the battery life. I can see all the power in this device sapping away the battery life, but hey I may be wrong, and it’s quite hard to tell something like this until you get to use one for a fair amount of time.

HTC EVO View 4G tablet

Another device worth noting is HTC’s new EVO View 4G tablet, which is very very similar to the Flyer I talked about in a previous post. Quite a run of the mill tablet, with a 1.5ghz processor and Android 2.3. Unfortunate we didn’t see honeycomb on this but maybe there’ll be an upgrade option at some point.

    Mmmm a 3D smartphone, looks cool but at the current time I don’t see the need for 3D. Maybe in a few years it will become more mainstream but now it is confined to a few select devices.

    The WiMAX does seem interesting for people in the states. It would be nice if Vividwireless could handle tablets or phones directly instead of needing to connect them via one of their wi-fi devices (Home gateway or Mi-Fi modem). This would be a few times faster than the current 3G networks, except Telstra and their “Next G.”

    Do you know if the tablet is dual-core? because by looking at the clock speed it seems like it is only a fast single-core instead of a balanced dual-core.

    A key thought about Android devices is will they receive updates? I say this because it has only been recently where some devices in Australia received Froyo (2.2) It would be a real shame if the either of these devices never got updated to a future OS. This is one of the things that I dislike about Android devices; the uncertainty of updates.

    Nice news though 🙂
