Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D gets $200 price tag from RadioShack, shipping with Green Hornet 3D

RadioShack began taking pre-orders for Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D last week, and now the phone’s price tag may have been confirmed to be $200, or $500 off contract. An apparent leaked advertisement suggests that the device will also come with Green Hornet 3D pre-loaded, and it looks like anyone who trades in an HTC EVO 4G or HTC EVO Shift will be able to knock $100 off the purchase price. Unfortunately there still aren’t any details on a specific launch date, but if you want to get your EVO 3D with a hint of Seth Rogen, you may want to head over to your local RadioShack now. More →

Sprint’s latest 4G phone just $89.99 from Amazon

Sprint released its latest 4G phone earlier this month and the launch price of $149.99 seemed surprisingly reasonable for a well-spec’d 4G smartphone with all the trimmings. As reasonable as that might be, the second smartphone in Sprint’s EVO line is now available from AmazonWireless for just $89.99 with a new two-year contract. The HTC EVO Shift 4G features a 3.6-inch 800 x 480-pixel touchscreen display, an 800MHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture support, mobile hotspot capabilities and 4G WiMAX connectivity, as its moniker might indicate. It runs Android 2.2 Froyo and all in all, it’s definitely a solid option for Sprint subscribers seeking out a new smartphone. Then again, with Mobile World Congress less than a month away, it might be wise to hold off and see what new goodies Sprint has in store. More →

HTC EVO Shift 4G shown off on video

Gaming Google isn’t just for hard up magazine publishers anymore, as cell phone retailer Wirefly tries to milk as much search traffic as possible with its new “HTC Evo Shift Review.” Coinciding with Sprint’s announcement earlier this morning, Wirefly has issued a lengthy video showcasing the new EVO Shift 4G. Available on YouTube in full 1080p HD, the video does a good job of going over the EVO Shift’s hardware and software. It also shows the device next to the original EVO 4G and a Motorola DROID 2 for size comparisons, and displays the impressive results of a benchmark test. The video doesn’t offer much in the way of revelations considering the extensive leaks leading up to the Shift’s announcement, however, but it never hurts to enjoy nearly 10 solid minutes of new phone porn. Hit the break for the full video.
