Sprint has chosen June 24, 2011 as the day it adds a pair of HTC Android devices as the cornerstone of its line-up. The HTC EVO 3D Android phone and the HTC View 4G tablet will both go on-sale that day, providing glasses-free 3D or a 7-inch Sense UI tablet tied to the Sprint 4G WiMax network.
The HTC EVO 3D retails for $199.99 when purchased on a new two-year agreement or upgrade. Customers can pre-order the 3D phone by purchasing a $50 gift card at their local Sprint store that can be redeemed on the 24th (Radio Shack offers a similar deal). After paying the remaining $149, Sprint subscribers will get a device that we named as one of the premiere phones shown at CTIA 2011. The EVO 3D records and displays 3D content without those silly red-and-blue glasses, has a dual-core Qualcomm processor, a qHD display, and plenty of features. Watch our hands-on video for a refresher.
Customers still satisfied with the first EVO can still get a taste of the new version HTC Sense UI by purchasing the EVO View 4G, Sprint’s 4G WiMax-ready version of the HTC Flyer. The View retails for $399.99 on a two-year agreement, with contracts starting at $34.99 per month. The HTC Scribe pen is included in the purchase, so that’s an extra $79.99 that you can keep in your pocket. Check-out our previous coverage of the View 4G aka the HTC Flyer to get more on this device.
Radio Shack advertisements previously suggested a June 24th release for the EVO 3D, and we now have confirmation that both the EVO 3D and the View 4G will arrive at the end of the month. We look forward to testing out both devices to see if they are worth upgrading on or switching to Sprint.
