Sprint now says 1080p video capture was a typo
Here's the official word:
Our apologies, but there was a typo in the spec sheet for EVO 3D. The correct feature should read: capture video up to 720p and playback up to 1080p on both 2D and 3D.

BULL on that ... That is a MAJOR typo ... How do you keep the mistake and not issue a retraction immediately ... " We introduce to you the new Evo 3D with amoled screen " ... Ohhhh our bad no amoled screen that was a typo.

Well I'm not going to use my camera that much anyway. I'd rather buy a camera that was meant to be used for recording/shooting in hd.

I the one year and 12 days that I have had my Evo 4G, I barely used my camera, let alone the video function of it, so to me it really doesn't matter that much, others might be more upset, but, truthfully, those little cameras just can't record as well as a dedicated video camera. Looking at a 720p video compared to a 1080p video recorded on the Sensation, I bet most people would be hard pressed to see the difference.
It was a major typo though, that's for sure!
I wonder if the 4GB onboard storage was a typo as well, in Phils video we see the 1 GB for ram, and the space on the sd card, but no mention of the remaining 3 GB. What's up with that?

I honestly wish they just left the 3d part alone and came out with just 2d phone. I think the camera is actually adding the bulk to the phone, it sticks out because htc probably didn't wanna make it even more thicker, even though they have kept the weight down. I they they could have had similar form factor to sensation if they decided not to go 3d. I think its more of a marketing point, I really dont care about the 3d part of the phone.

Obviously it wasnt a typo...
They just dont want people giving them sh*t for it. Thing is, they're going to get crap about it because these are the specs they promised...
1080p most likely wasnt ready for prime time so they'll probably release an update allowing it...
You know, how the Incredible got an update for 720p recording.

Pardon me for asking, as I'm not trying to troll, but why does this even matter? Is a 1080P video taken off a phone going to somehow do something I'm not aware of? Don't most videos taken on phones generally look like crap anyway, so what is the big deal whether it's in 720p or 1080p? It's not like you are going to use it to film Avatar 2 or something.
I really am just curious from those that are upset about this. Not trying to start a fight!
