Sprint Announces HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO View 4G

Sprint’s big announcements at today’s presentation at CTIA are a 3D phone and their new, very powerful tablet — both from HTC.

The EVO 3D wil be a glasses-less 3D phone, running a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, Android 2.3, 4.3-inch screen at 960×540 resolution. It has two 5MP cameras on the back, and a 1.3MP in front. There’s 1GB of RAM on board, and 4GB of storage built-in.

The EVO View 4G is a 7-inch, 1024×600 tablet with a powerful 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5MP camera on the back and 1.3MP facing forward. It’ll have 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, a 4000mAh battery, and apparently a stylus. The weird thing? It’s running Sense UI on top of Android 2.3, not Honeycomb.

No word on pricing or availability on either, just “this summer”.
