    It was bound to happen, Figured Id ask while it was hot. Are we all moving to the evo 3d?

    I want to know where my AF peeps are going and where the devs are going. This answer alone will likely make up my mind. Im not due for an upgrade till jan, and by then something new may be on the horizon. I dont see you guys in the other forums often except Mr. Ed so I wanted to ask here.

    If devs keep going with OG Evo i'm totally staying. Yes i like the idea of dual core 1.2 g snapdragon with asynchronous clock but i dont need 3D, or dual cameras, or the lack of a built in kickstand, or a few other things it has. I know the fact that its faster will draw some curiosity but do we think our fav devs and gurus will move on?

    I didnt create this thread to discuss the evo 3d per se just about rooting it and the dev/root community and where they are likely to go.

    I'm sticking with my evo until I can upgradewhich will not happen til next year. The devs will no doubt port the evo with some evo 3d goodness. Though this phone sounds amazing. Plus I want to make sure the build will be ok. There was to many issues with the first round of evos

    Ah i was unaware of the build issues as i didnt get my evo till early january. That is a great point though. Im hoping my evo remains relevant to the devs till next january. I am also a flashaholic, i would hate to have nothing to flash but as ocn pointed out they will likely port some stuff over if there are any devs LEFT to port it over. Gives me a new kind of excitement then, looking forward to evo 3d ports :).

    Yeah probably not im only a 3 yr sprint user, its only to like 10 year people isnt it? I havent read about it or anything. I upgraded in jan right before it changed when i was still premier and didnt have to be gold i guess...? By upgrade i guess i mean buy the new phone and activate it ya know. I dont usually keep a phone 2 years. In my off years i buy without using my upgrade.

    I'll probably be keeping my phone for 2 years. Only a month old now. I get upgrades yearly (advantage club), but I can't really justify spending 2-300 on a new phone every year if its working OK... Plus, the EVO has great specs, no reason to think there will be a lot it cant do within a years time.

    Don't really need/want 3-D, but will upgrade to a 3-D phone if theres not a better non 3-D option out when I go to buy.

    starting to sound like much wont change around here other than some evo 3d ports, and to me that is good news. Now drop an EVO 2 that is just faster with a better screen and minor tweaks and im in!

    My decision mostly depends on how quickly they gain root and if it has a good amount of developers behind it. I also am not going to get it as soon as it comes out I am going to wait to make sure all of the bugs have been worked out.

    Good chance I might be taking advantage of my Premier status for the first time and upgrading... But for sure I'll still be lurking here. My first home :)

    Yeah I'm worried about the same thing, if I stay with my original will all the developers leave and if I buy an Evo 3D will it have a bunch of awesome developers or will it even be rootable lol.

    I got my Evo last December. Wanted to wait until my Pre was on it's last legs. I am eligible for yearly upgrades, so if the 3D is that good I will pick one up this December.

    That being said, I hope the ROM is ported to our Evo. That might keep me from switching.

    Haha....the best isn't always the most expensive .....my 9 ye old will spend alot of time with whatever I buy so I have to find balance.

    Odd question related to phones.....anyone visit a sprint store lately and notice pics of the xperia play on the wall?
