Is this a sign that the world just isn’t interested in 3D smartphones? The Android-powered HTC Evo 3D, which was launched just last year, has already been demoted to the bargain bin at Asda stores throughout the U.K., with prices slashed to just £250 (approx. $390).
But whether or not you’re into glasses-free 3D technology, the Evo 3D isn’t a bad smartphone. It’s packing specifications that make it a high-end device, and at just £250 without a commitment, it’s an absolute steal. It sports a 4.3-inch qHD display and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor; with 1GB of RAM and 1GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD).
It also feature two 5-megapixel cameras on the back for shooting 3D images and videos, though it’s capable of shooting in 2D as well. It’s also got a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for video calling. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the custom HTC Sense user interface, but an Ice Cream Sandwich update will be available later this year.
Those specifications make the HTC Evo 3D a pretty impressive handset. Even if you never use its 3D capabilities, I think you’ll be more than impressed with the device. I got my hands on it shortly before its release in the U.K. last year and I was really pleased with it. And it seems that not even Asda can believe it’s so cheap:
“It’s a blockbuster phone at an amazingly low price,” said James McMurrough, Asda’s mobile phone expert. “We’re constantly amazed at the features that are being built into the latest phones – and it’s incredible to think that one of the latest Hollywood techniques is now available at such a low price.”
If you’re currently looking for a very capable Android handset without a commitment, then I would certainly recommend you check out the HTC Evo 3D.
