Evo 3D gets 3D Blockbuster, HTC Watch, Gameloft
Sprint on Tuesday confirmed plans for the HTC Evo 3D to ship with 3D content both on and ready for the phone. The dual-core Android hardware will come with the recently hinted 3D version of Green Hornet and tap into 3D movie services as well. Both Blockbuster and HTC's own Watch will be onboard with 3D movies as an option to buy or rent from either store.
Gaming will get some space with a 3D-aware demo version of Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem as well as quick access to Gameloft's store to get games like Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles, some of which will be optimized for 3D.
In spite of the content deal plans, Sprint was still short on launch details and said only that the Evo 3D would ship in the summer. Early pricing leaks have it costing the same $200 on contract as many other of Sprint's phones, even though it should be the carrier's flagship for the rest of the year.
