Sprint to sell tablet and 3-D phone
The yet-to-be-released phone, announced Tuesday, is part of a batch of 3-D capable consumer electronics hitting store shelves soon -- including the Nintendo 3DS (launching Sunday for $249.99) and AT&T's LG Thrill 4G.
Using the 4G network, the EVO 3D will have a speedier Web browser and run the latest version of Google's Android. The phone will have 4 gigabytes of internal storage, a 4.3-inch screen and dual 5-megapixel cameras for shooting videos and photos.
"As 3-D has become more sought-after in both movie theaters and family rooms, the ability to enjoy 3-D on a wireless phone -- 3-D glasses-free -- will change the way customers interact with their devices," a Sprint statement released Tuesday said, predicting that people will embrace 3-D video and photos as a way to relive vacations.
Along with the phone, Sprint also announced a 7-inch tablet called the HTC EVO View 4G with a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and the latest version of HTC sense. It will come with 32 gigabytes of internal storage and 1 gigabyte of memory.
Both devices will officially launch this summer. Prices are not yet available.
