    You are quite welcome. I am glad that we could be of service.

    I have just one question though. Why not wait for the Sprint HTC EVO 3D?

    okay heres the story. My dad's tmobile contract ended so we were putting him on our plan. but since he doesnt need such a high tech phone, i figured i would take the cheaper new 2 year contract priced phone and he would get my old one.

    and my mom was eligible for an upgrade.
    the Nexus was 100 with that 2 year contract, evo 3D is 200 :( dont have that money right now so yeah.... lol i also am in love with GB and my hero was slowing down. I wish i could have waited for the 3D.

    theres the long story LBP hehehehe :D

    I see. That is very understandable.

    Even subsidized, these smartphones can be pretty expensive. They more technology they pack into them, the higher up the price will go.

    Yes. It has Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense version 3.0 out of the box.

    I am actually more interested in the hardware specifications than the 3D aspects of it. It should be a blast.

    HTC Sense UI version 3.0, on the Sprint HTC EVO 3D, is built on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. At the moment you would not be able to flash custom ROMs to it. :(

    HTC has vowed that it will unlock the bootloader in the future though. I think they will follow through or they will have an angry mob of people. :D

    Sense 3.0 is pretty amazing even running on the Evo. For those that love AOSP roms, they will be quite happy with the HTC Sense overlay again.


    GB/2.3.3 or 2.3.4 is the operating system of Android, Sense 3.0 is the overlay that HTC puts on their phones.

    Yeah HTC Sense UI version 3.0 looks neat. I heard with the Sprint HTC EVO 3D with 3D mode turned on that it actually does not have any 3D effects, which is fine by me.

    On another humorous note, every time I talk about the Sprint HTC EVO 3D via text message on my Sprint HTC Hero, it changes "3D" to "3Some" with hilarious results. Today, I asked my friend if he was going to preorder his "3Some" soon.
