HTC Evo 3D Won't Have Premium Cost for Pointless Feature

Illustration for article titled HTC Evo 3D Wont Have Premium Cost for Pointless Feature

The HTC Evo 3D is the first major 3D phone to hit these shores, but the price tag doesn't reflect the bonus dimension; according to this leaked RadioShack flier, the handset will cost $200 on-contract. And ship with a movie!

Okay, so the movie it ships with—Green Hornet 3D, isn't one you'd probably have paid to see in the first place, much less on a wee little display. But the Evo 3D looks like a solid phone even beyond all this 3D silliness. Even better: if you decide to trade in your beloved Evo 4G or Evo Shift, that on-contract price gets cut in half to $100.

And after all, it's not like anyone's going to force you to watch Seth Rogan waddle through fight sequence or eight. [PocketNow via BGR]

If the 3D illusion is good enough won't it be hard or confusing to know at what depth your finger will touch the screen? Seems like this may be an issue for games or the UI or at least ruin the illusion in some cases. With the way 3D has been crammed down our throats w/ little afterthought the first few years of 3D phones will probably be 3D for the sake of having 3D and be clumsy.
