    Ok anyone else upset that htc has decided to not put a kickstand on the new evo 3d?
    I use the kickstand on my evo all the time, I love it!
    I cant understand this decision, anyone have any ideas why they would do this?

    I really can't believe this either, it is REALLY a shame. One of the best features on the original Evo, gone... I'm really upset about this actually.

    I use my kickstand all the time as well, so I too am perturbed by its omission. I can only assume that the mechanism for the kickstand would take up too much space considering the dual cameras and such.

    That said, I will gladly trade the kickstand for a dual-core, qHD, glasses-free 3D experience in a slightly taller, narrower, and thinner package!

    The missing kickstand will remain the most talk about topic on this device. Why would HTC or Sprint decided on not keeping the kickstand? I sure would love an answer to that... So, we could find out the real reason by asking Sprint.

    I'm guessing it boils down to thickness. They said the 3d has a 1730mAh battery I'm betting thats pretty thick in of its self.

    I don't really use my kickstand very much personally. Every now and then it comes in handy, but I would rather just not have another nook that I have to clean (I'm pretty OCD about cleaning my phone).

    They've announced that there will be a kickstand case, for those of you who use a case. I'm not one.

    Just like you I use the kickstand every single day!

    And the location of the Micro USB port blows too!
    Why couldn't HTC just leave it at the bottom of the phone?

    I believe it is because there will be a cradle released to dock the 3d in to play movies and /or charge the phone

    I too am disappointed in the current lack of an included kickstand, which was made "famous" by the original EVO.

    I understand there is going to be a kickstand case, but I need to see how that turns out since I have the EVO only in the leather holster.

    Just get one of those smart phone coasters from amazon man. That will take care of it.

    I've never actually used my kickstand, though I sympathize with those who will miss it.

    I don't know if that's our EVO or not with the GSM radio listed in it.

    Then why was it in Sprints Keynote address? it is just possible that it is a world phone so it will have a GSM attena in it.

    Slingbox + Evo w/kickstand = love. I will miss it. Most of the time I use it is at work to watch ESPN and whatever, and I use it A LOT for this. However, I can get a dock for it. I use the kickstand to prop it up while I'm eating during lunch or waiting for my food at a restaurant, etc. and THAT I will miss.

    I went to lunch with a co-worker today who has an iPhone and didn't know much about the Evo. What impressed him the most was the Flash player and.......you guessed it......the kickstand.

    Now it's gone. Go figure. I wish it would have it, but I'm still buying it on launch day even if I have to be one of these losers I always laugh at for sleeping on the sidewalk to be able to get something on release day. lol

    Lets keep all upcoming device talk out of the evo section, as it really doesnt have anything to do with the evo.
