If you live in Australia and are into 3D smartphone gimmickry, then soon you’ll have plenty of choice. It looks like all three major Australian carriers either have or will have a 3D-capable Android-powered smartphone in their respective portfolios.
Optus already sells the LG Optimus 3D, the world’s first 3D smartphone, and today we got word that Vodafone and Telstra will be joining the 3D fun too. Not with LG’s device, though. Rather, both carriers will launch the HTC Evo 3D, which is at the moment the LG’s only competitor.
Telstra will release the Evo 3D sometime in September, while Vodafone hasn’t got anything to say about when it will start selling the Evo 3D. Other than the fact that it will announce pricing “closer to the date”. So the Evo 3D will be out at Vodafone at some point, and the pricing will be announced when we’re close to said point.
Either way, it’s a good year to be a fan of glasses-less 3D in Australia. Especially if you’re also into Android. Now all you have to do is hang tight, if your carrier of choice is Telstra or Vodafone, or just go and get an Optimus 3D if you’re on Optus. Your choice.
Get the HTC EVO 3D in the US on Amazon.
