    Yeah, it looks like a mashup between Sense and Launcher Pro. I really like the look of it.

    Shame the handset crashed a couple of times in the demo though...

    Yea not optimised yet.. I am sure it will get there.. but knowing some of the dodgy Sense software recently...

    EVO 3D interesting.. two camera... Do we really need this now??? I think it is a gimmick all this 3D stuff... the tech is no where ready yet

    Aye, not to concerned about the crashing, as you say, it's just a demo and not fully optimised.

    3D is the way things are going. Admittedly, I think it's a bit silly in phones, but there you go.

    I like the little tweaks, they've latched into peoples needs to access things from the lockscreen too which is good :)

    Its great that HTC released a 3D smart phone. But is it really only 5 mega pixels? and it crashes too much? C'mon HTC you can do better than that :)

    i dont mind the fact its 5mp, what i mind is the fact that my OLD nokia n95 took better pics (inc it was better at taking moving objects too) than the 8mp on my DHD today?? as before, its not all about the MP's on a phone....just wished HTc teamed up with a proper photography firm and produces better sensors and lenses. Any one for Leica?

    Im interested to see how 3D develops on phones, esp on the gaming front...tho...boy, imagine if you were drunk or smoked a lil summin...man 3D must be trippy! lol

    I don't thinly 3some will pick up for a while on phones. You need an 2d / 3d button for the screen, not the camera... the 3ds (using very similar tech) comes with a health warning because 'naked eye' 3d will damage your eyes if you use it for over half an hour at a time.

    It's a trade off I suppose, you have a phone that happens to take pictures as opposed to a camera that happens to be able to connect to the internet and make calls. You won't get a camera that is also a phone.

    The Nokia N8 for example, a great camera, let down by a rubbish OS. I think the general consensus is if people want to take decent photo's, they'll get a decent camera.

    Reminds me of this though -

    That's right. They actually officially recommended that under 14s don't use the 3d feature at all, bit they have no medical proof it will harm them anymore than us in a 30 minute period.

    I can see phones coming with these warnings.... if I have a 3d capable item ill want to use 3d as often as possible... why fork out the extra for the capability if you could seriously screw with your brain by using it... its daft!!
    On another note.... I like that they have dual cameras for 3d photos and video. Did anyone catch the gadget show where they made a 3d movie using the same method???

    Search YouTube for "gadget show 3d trailer" you want "suzi's 3d 720p" don't knowing they have the option to watch old episodes on the channel 5 website so it might be worth checking

    No idea :eek:

    Potentially because the N8 was (apparently) make or break for Nokia and they decided to go all out? Where as HTC are an emerging (yet one of the most well known) manufacturer and they knew that people would buy their handsets regardless of spec. Essentially they could afford to cut corners?

    That being said, in the right conditions, the camera isn't all that bad. I got some cracking pics of my wee man in the park today.

    It's not just the HW, it's a trade-off for system resources.
    The cybershot phones, for example, are basically a camera with phone capabilities, which is why they gave such good pictures.
    Not only that, camera capabilities was a big selling point back then, not so much anymore as people want it to do a heap of other things too.

    If you remember, phones were phones plus some other specific job that they were good at, eg phone+great music player, phone+great camera, phone+good satnav etc

    I'm afraid with so much more going on in phones these days, taking a picture (which takes a lot of system resources) takes second place, as it has a whole bunch of other stuff to do.

    Some, such as the iphone & N8, have OSs designed to dedicate more resources to the camera, HW & SW.
    This is probably because they are marketed as more of a social networking tool, for which a good camera is necessary.

    Not the dhd though, i'm all booted & rooted.

    ... & now they've got 3d to deal with
