    I spoke to an HTC rep a few minutes ago and they still have no timeline as to when accessories will be available.

    I used to love invisible shield, until I found SGP. Invisible shield always seems to feel sticky and then it gets the orange peel effect.

    Looks like they already created a screen protector for the one x, so I'm assuming they'll make one for the LTEvo.

    What's SGP? I was looking at Clarivue and they didn't list the new EVO yet. I had Clarivue on my OG EVO so I stuck with it on my 3D. I have heard Steinheil is good too.

    Steinheil = SGP = Spigen

    For whatever reason they seem to like to change their name alot. Also, if you want them to make a product for your phone you have to let them know.

    See this post for more info

    There sure is alot of topic crossover lately. Makes me feel like I'm going in circles. :D

    What's funny is, I tried to get people on board with asking for them to make one for the Photon, but it just never came to fruition. It was so frustrating because it's by far the best screen protector I've ever used. The person that is using my original EVO still has it on there and it only started coming off at the corner more recently.

    I'm a big Seidio fan but I was kind of disappointed by the Active case for the EVO LTE. Maybe it was a design necessity to cover up the phone's kickstand (although the Surface doesn't), but the case's kickstand looks much more cheaply made and ugly in comparison. I'll probably settle for a Surface.

    I know I was disappointed too! I like the Active better than the surface and I have a Surface now with a kickstand for the 3D that I have on there and use but I still love the Active and like it better. But I want to show off the phone and why they couldn't make a cutout for the kickstand on the Active I don't get it. I'll get a surface too I guess.

    I wrote them and was told they have no plans to make a screen protector at this time.

    Will the screen protector for one X not fit the Sprint version?

    Now that we have a launch date, any word on when accessories are going to start rolling in? Is Sprint going to carry any on the 18th?

    If HTC follows their past history, their manufacturer specific accessories won't be out until a few months after the device is released. That's the department that, IMO, HTC is a complete Fail!...LOL.

    Yes, it will be at least 2-3 months for a desk dock and car dock to come out if past experiences are any indication.

    HTC did preview some thin cases at CITA though, so with any luck, those will be out around launch or not too long after.

    I really loved that black HTC case with the red logo.

    They have a couple cases there. I am going to get the one below. I have had one on my original EVO 4g since I have had the unit and has not wore out or broke on me since purchase also hide the camera just right to were it would not sit on the lens. Also the jelly case has saved it from about 4 drops to the concrete floor without being a big otter box.

    I remember when I got my EVO they had cases at the Sprint store and I bought a 15 dollar case to hold me over till I could get a better one. I don't remember what I did for the 3D but I have 2 nice Seidio cases now. But I want a car dock and a home dock and a screen protector and one nice seidio case and maybe a charging vault.

    Don't they already have the car dock out for the one x? If so I would think we would have one relatively quick considering they are essentially the same phone. Well here's to hoping anyway

    Marc,

    Thanks missed that. Price still stings a bit, but for me It's a must have :D I'm just thankful its available for LTEVO and we won't have to wait :cool:

    Thanks again.

    it would be sooo awesome..if they made docks for the LTevo .. like the Asus PadPhone; tablet and keyboard and pen/stylus/handset!!!!!

    and design it so that future EVO's can fit in same docks!
