Anticipation over HTC’s EVO 3D smartphone will finally start to cool off now that it made its debut in Sprint stores today.
Promising to be one of the summer’s hottest device to go on sale featuring a display capable of providing a glasses-free 3D visual experience – America’ first – and cool new attributes in addition to the good impression its outstanding predecessor, the HTC EVO 4G, left on consumers, the EVO 3D is posing to be a delight hard to let pass by.
On another note, we’ve had the outpouring of rumors over Apple’s iPhone 5 making its way to store shelves possibly this September. There is reason to believe that the smartphone will support Apple’s new anticipated mobile operating system the iOS 5 and it has been reported that it will also feature a glasses-free 3D display, just like the EVO 3D.
With that stated, the question that remains is: should you succumb to your satisfaction seeking sense and delight with HTC’s EVO 3D now or patiently wait for Apple’s iPhone 5 when it comes out in the fall?
