    EVO 3D looks great, but if they release Sense 2.0 w/ Gingerbread and that awesome new lock screen, I believe the EVO would still be better. When I say better, I mean b/c you won't have to buy a new phone, sign a new contract, or move your data just to get those new features.

    How many of you would love to see those new features on our EVO's?

    I don't get the Gingerbread thing. Can't you just root your evo 4g and get that now?

    yes you can get GB.. but the CM version or AOSP

    we are talking about the GB with Sense 2.x and working 4G.
    i think it is a totally different breed of android.

    you can get gingerbread, but not the new sense, as far as I know...

    that said...the evo 3d in terms of sheer power clearly blows the current evo away. but all the small extenuating circumstances mean the original evo still has a reason for existing. there's nothing in the 3d that for me, right now, justifies an upgrade. The ugliness of the two cameras outweighs the novelty of any 3d/1080p features, the ease of media streaming with a built in kickstand, the shorter length for "pocketablility" (lol)

    thats my thing, the only thing that makes me want to upgrade really is the software. The hardware on the EVO is good enough for me, and Im sure many feel the sameway. Of course, spec wise, the EVO3D blows it out of the water. But give me the upgraded software minus the 3d and Im good to go on the EVO. lol

    Well...you can get sense 2.0 on one of the z ports or gb...but not both (yet)

    I will keep my evolution and put money into a good tablet personally

    Have any of you seen the demos on youtube?

    Do you think Sense 2.0 and gingerbread will be that snappy on the first generation?

    I hope it would, sense I noticed a huge improvement when we got Froyo. Theres a Desire HD rom floating around for the EVO that has Sense 2.0 and I think GB. It seemed to run fine.

    does an operating system/launcher really require dual core to run?

    Probably not, but lets hope HTC optimized it for Dual Core...although, based on their EVO 4G attempts...I doubt it.

    I think I would be more willing to cast my vote if I got to play with an OG EVO with new Sense + Gingerbread along with getting to play with the 3D. Before we do that, it is all conjecture IMO.

    I am sure the OG EVO will be awesome with Gingerbread and the new sense, but let's face it, it's all about user experience. I don't think most of us here replace a phone because it has been rendered unusable, but rather because there is something more powerful out to replace it.

    The answer to this is obvious. No, it does not. How can I be so sure? Well, look at what is out there. It's all almost exclusively single core, so it obviously doesn't REQUIRE a dual core to run. Dual cores are simply more efficient and faster. The die (sp?) is also smaller, which goes back into the efficiency factor.

    Every GB based ROM i've ever tried has been a really cool and smooth UI experience, but the camera app is terrible. You loose the nice wide aspect ratio for 8mp photos as well as video. As of right now, that's the deal breaker for me. sticking with sense based ROMs for now until I hear of a better camera experience in a GB ROM.

    There are plenty of good can apps out there for me.....and for the record.. regardless of what the screen preview size is the aospcams take the same resolution photos as stock.....and do so better.....not to mention the fact that audio is recorded 10 times better


    Check out LG camera in the market...it rocks

    One can hop I suppose. I think we have all been around long enough to know that NO date is the real date until we are physically updating our phones to the official ROM release. I have seen official dates be postponed in the last minute. I am going with the safe bet of expecting absolutely nothing and hoping I do get something.

    From the article:

    Makes a lot of sense to me. Evo 3D will be out before existing Evos get updated to GB... I think I have the patience to wait for the update, even though I am itching to try out the Evo 3D.

    Withholding the update is supposedly "to ensure that customers do not hold back from purchasing newly announced devices."

    Kinda shocked Apple doesn't do this. Seems more along the lines of Apple tactics!

    Unless my thinking is wrong, i don't think i want to downgrade from an 8mp camera to a 5mp, when not taking 3d pics....phone is plenty fast for me and with the upgrade to the new launcher, if we get it, i'm gonna stay with original evo....

    We have no idea how good the sensors and software is. The 5MP pic taken by the 3D mught actualy look 10x better than the 8MP pic taken by the EVO. I would be utterly shocked if they kept everything the same and downgraded to 5MP. THat doesn't make sense to me. I am banking on a camera that takes nicer still than the 4G as well.

    I also had a hard time believing they would downgrade the camera when every other spec has been at least bumped, in some cases doubled, but again, unless my thinking is wrong, megapixels means pixels per inch, doesn't it? so haw can having less pixels give you a better image? All the new camera's i saw at CES this year were at least 10mp some were 12mp, if you can get a better pic with less then why are camera manufacturers going higher and higher with megapixel counts? Then again i have not researched this, so i could be way off base here......
