    It's bizarre, but the new market has not been pushed to my Evo 3D and Evo 4G, but it has been automagically pushed to my CM7 Nook Color.

    Well I'm not secretly praying we don't get it, I'm praying out loud we don't get it. I don't like it at all.

    The new market is a significant upgrade to the previous one. The layout is infinitely better, it sorts between the categories, top paid, and top free in a more useful and organized manner, and the app preview layout is so much easier on the eyes--with the sample pictures, to reviews, to having the video preview (if available) right there under the screen previews.

    The old market looks, operates, and feels like something from 5 years ago.

    Interesting I thought I was the only one left without the market update. So I ended up manually installing it. IMO, it's not too bad.

    I'm really surprised we don't have it yet. Haven't used it, but my first reaction to seeing screenshots is that I'm not a fan, so I'll just "wait" patiently until it's pushed to me. I have absolutely zero problem with the old market, and hey, maybe the new one is better, but I don't know what I'm missing, and won't until I'm forced to.

    Me too. That'd be great if the functionality was improved, but the style looks bad to me. Here is to me praying I NEVER get this update.

    Just downloaded this to my EVO 3D and have to agree with you.

    I've searched and haven't really found anything on the topic, but does anyone with an EVO3D have the new android market? I know several people on other carriers besides Sprint and with different phones who got the new market awhile back, and I have seen videos showing EVO3D's with the new market. Is the only way to update to install the file yourself?

    Well, I finally gave up and downloaded it from the link here.
    I think that Sprint/HTC should be embarrassed that we have to search out these updates on our own, long after most other phones have received them. Thank goodness that we are innovative androidians or we'd be screwed.:rolleyes:

    I'm trying to hold out, but it's been so long since it went live. Even my friends Fascinate has the new market. This is making me think twice about the supposed "quick" updates from HTC. This is my first Android experience so, maybe I'm missing something.

    I was under the impression that this update comes from Google and not our Carrier? I could be wrong.

    I don't think they should be embarrassed, the new market IMO is ugly. I'm extremely happy that they haven't pushed this to everyone.

    You may be right about it being Google who should be embarrassed.
    Whether you think the new market is ugly or not, it is far superior to the old market in organization, and opportunities that the old market did not possess.
    I feel that the option to update our market should have been made available to us by now.

    I use the browser based market so functionality in the actual application means little to me.

    Today I went and got my wife her 3d and i wanted to down load something from xda on her phone. From experience I knew I had to have astro file manager to open it. So I go into astro and open the down load filed and in there I see a file for the market in there. I opened it and low and behold it was the new market. Tried it on my 3d and it was there too. Something people might want to look into. Not sure if it was a fluke or what but thought I would share.

    I just downloaded it. It seems better organized and operates smoother. Those annoying apps at the top that are a pain in the butt to slide are gone, which is awesome. I can see new apps and not have to fight with my screen to get through them

    I went ahead and downloaded and I like it. I would be a little more annoyed had this been a more important update. Lol, usually I go to the Market knowing what I want because I read about it here. ;)

    Great enjoy, hope it is better then the older version, lol from what I have read it is, so we will see, it also has a few more options, which is nice that you can turn the auto update off now.
