HTC EVO 3D review

The HTC EVO 4G is definitely one of Sprint’s most popular smartphones. In fact, even almost a year after its release, it’s still selling like hotcakes. Sprint faced serious demand issues with the EVO 4G well after the launch, and the nation’s first 4G smartphone is still one of the best. Let’s talk about the HTC EVO 3D, though. The follow up to the original HTC EVO 4G is packed to the brim with features, and will be the first 3D-capable device on the market when it launches. Is the HTC EVO 3D a better phone than the original EVO 4G? Does the addition of a 3D display add real value to the phone or is it just a headache-inducing novelty, as it is on other portable devices? Hit the break to find out.

T-Mobile G-Slate review

T-Mobile G-Slate review

T-Mobile introduced the world to its first Android 3.0-powered tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show this past January. Unfortunately for T-Mobile, however, the G-Slate was announced amid a flurry of similar announcements — remember, over 100 tablets were introduced at CES this year — so the LG-built tablet got a bit lost in the fray. What’s more, Motorola’s XOOM tablet was the star of the show, thus positioning the G-Slate as a second-class citizen at CES. Later this week, however, T-Mobile will finally embark on its virgin Honeycomb as it pushes the device out to market. It looks as though the launch will be a quiet one compared to the XOOM, but that doesn’t necessarily mean LG’s tablet is unworthy of some attention. I’ve spent a few days putting the device through its paces and while I must admit my expectations weren’t terribly high to begin with, T-Mobile’s tablet definitely managed to surprise me in a few areas. Does that mean you should consider stepping off one of those iPad 2 lines still forming outside retailers and consider the G-Slate instead? Read on for my full review.

LG Optimus 3D shares 3D videos with special YouTube app

LG Optimus 3D shares 3D videos with special YouTube app

LG on Monday announced a partnership with YouTube that will allow LG Optimus 3D users to share 3D video content using a special YouTube 3D app. The app, which will come pre-installed on LG’s new 3D smartphone, will allow users to upload 3D video content directly to YouTube’s 3D channel and share the videos with friends. Deals like this are crucial to the success of the Optimus 3D, as owners must have ways to easily share captured 3D content and view said content on PCs and other devices. Unlike videos viewed on the Optimus 3D’s glasses-free 3D display, however, users will need 3D glasses in order to properly view 3D videos uploaded from the phone to the YouTube 3D channel. Glasses are available from a variety of vendors, and they can also be purchased directly from Google’s YouTube Store for $7.10 per 10-pack. Hit the break for LG’s full press release and don’t forget to check out our LG Optimus 3D hands-on impressions, gallery and video.
