Rogers has just announced that it would be the first Canadian mobile carrier to release a 3D smartphone. And, in fact, it will release not one, but two 3D handsets: the HTC Evo 3D, and the LG Optimus 3D.
Both devices will “be available exclusively from Rogers this summer”, coming with Android (2.3 Gingerbread on the Evo 3D, and 2.2 Froyo on the Optimus 3D), and dual-core processors (1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 for the Evo 3D, and 1GHz TI OMAP4430 for the Optimus 3D).
The Evo 3D has a 4.3 inch qHD display, while the Optimus 3D features a 4.3 inch WVGA one. 5MP dual-cameras with 720p 3D video recording are featured by both handsets.
Rogers says that existing customers can reserve either of the two new smartphones via the Rogers Reservation System (although the link doesn’t seem to get you where it should). New customers will be able to pre-order the handsets starting next week.
Rogers didn’t mention how much its HTC Evo 3D and LG Optimus 3D would cost. The Evo 3D is already available in the US (offered by Sprint for $199.99 on contract), while the LG Optimus 3D should be released by AT&T soon, under the name of LG Thrill (most probably also for $199.99 on contract).
