    I came across this little article that got me a bit concerned (but I'll keep my true judgement for when I'm holding the device myself) ...

    Gizmocrunch says the 3D of the Evo 3D causes display issues and basically that it's not very good. Contrast this to the Wirefly review who says that the Evo 3D's display is gorgeous. I am certainly excited to read some additional reviews when they come out... which should be soon right?! AC, Engaget, PhoneDog, etc... lets have a review soon.

    Let us all keep our fingers crossed!

    That was a stupid review. They saw it in the E3 show floor. Those conditions aren't good for really reviewing a feature like the screen quality. I'm not saying the 3D is fantastic, but it is no worse than the 3DS. The technology of those screens has limits on viewing angles. That's why the tech is limited to small screen sizes. I've said since the beginning of the 3D era that its just a marketing gimmick. I still believe that. Will I buy an EVO 3D? Yes. I will likely use the 3D feature, but it isn't the reason I'm getting the phone.

    I could really care less about the 3D on this phone. Im buying it for the specs and the new Sense and because I'll be able to root this phone and take off all the bloatware and crap I'll never use. This phone will fly after that. Once I rooted my EVO and took off the crap it was so much faster. Still patiently waiting for the 21st so I can buy mine online.

    I'm getting the Evo 3D because it's a dual-core 4G HTC phone with a qHD display running Gingerbread on the Sprint network. And I happen to like what HTC does with Sense. The 3D part as far as I'm concerned is a gimmick. After the initial "oh wow, this is kinda cool" factor wears off, I doubt I'll be utilizing it further.

    Who are these guys? They liberated their name a bit from Gizmodo and Crunchgear?

    That's just a good way to generate some hits to their site. Put out a very short provocative little article to generate attention. Pure nonsense. Either do a real review or stfu imo.

    They are biased against the 3D yet I doubt they have had their hands on one, they posted this nonsense: Forget HTC EVO 3D, Motorola Photon 4G Launches (Hands On)

    Rofl I was about to click on the OP's link until I read this gem. Too much stupid on that site. I don't feel like frying any brain cells.

    Can that happen? And how exactly? I'm interested if that would be possible.

    I too am not getting the E3D for it's 3D capabilities. Like another user stated, it's because of the great CPU, Sense 3.0, etc. I was concerned because the silly 'review' said that the screen wasn't so good, and didn't indicate that the opinion was only when viewing 3D content.

    The 21st can't come fast enough!
