Sprint rejected HTC’s original plans for a 3D HTC EVO 4G LTE

Last week during CTIA, HTC spokesperson Jeff Gordon stated that Sprint rejected HTC's original plans to include 3D capabilities in the upcoming HTC EVO 4G LTE. Rather, Sprint was much more insistent that the latest iteration of the EVO bring back the famed kickstand, as customers seemed to value this feature more than what many consider just a headache-inducing gimmick.

Gorden went on to say, "I wouldn't say 3D was necessarily dead, I mean never say never, but we don't have any new products with 3D in the lineup. That's based partially on customer feedback, what we know the market wants, and also a design decision we've made."

Indeed, while popular among a very small customer base, the EVO 3D simply didn't enjoy as much success as the original EVO 4G; for whatever reason, many customers seemed turned off by the idea of mobile 3D technology. So it's good to see Sprint and HTC listening to the market, but what do you think? Would you have liked to see 3D in this next version of the EVO, or are you glad that Sprint gave it the cold shoulder?
