Good and EVO

What do you want to know about the HTC EVO 3D?

Htc-evo-3d-questions Now that the initial excitement surrounding yesterday's launch of the HTC EVO 3D has died down and you've had a chance to sleep on it, you may start thinking about all the things we don't know about the phone yet.

Sure, you've memorized the uber specs and can recite them on command (say it with me: 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4GB internal memory, 1GB RAM, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 4.3-inch qHD display, two 5MP rear cameras, 1.3MP front cam), but do you know exactly when "this summer" it's going to be released? Do you know how much it's going to cost? What's going to be in the box? What kind of accessories are Sprint/HTC going to have at launch? Will full HDMI (HDMI mirroring) be supported out of the box?

The value and function of the two cameras and their 3D-capturing abilities may also be on some of your minds, especially because there was a rumor going around that in 2D mode, the cameras would be able to product a 10MP photo. Well, according to the HTC website, 2D photos can be taken "with up to 5-megapixel resolution" and 3D photos can be taken "with up to 2-megapixel resolution." HTC should know what they're talking about since it's their phone, but some of the other specs on the page right now are incorrect. For example, internal storage is listed as 1GB and there's no mention of WiMAX/4G. So I guess another question to add to the list would be about the cameras.

Battery life is another question, especially considering the less-than-stellar runtime of the EVO 4G. Sprint says it's TBD but according to HTC, the EVO 3D's 1730mAh battery should be good for up to 7.5 hours of talk time and up to 355 hours of standby time. That's over two weeks and most likely another typo. So consider battery life to still be a question without an answer.

What else do you want to know?
