Sprint Begins Promoting Exclusive EVO 3D Content

A press release hit the wires just a few hours ago with Sprint touting some of the bundled features for the upcoming EVO 3D.  While some of you will call it bloatware, others (and Sprint) perceive it as exciting, value-added content.  Either way you look at it, the EVO 3D will have a bunch of 2D and 3D ‘it’ when it arrives this summer.

For starters, The Green Hornet 3D will come loaded on the microSD card that comes with a select number of handsets.  If the Seth Rogen flick isn’t your cup of tea, then you’ll be able to browse the HTC Watch movie app where this and other 2D/3D movies and television programs can be rented ($2.99 to $3.99) or purchased ($8.99 and up).  The programming will be optimized for viewing on HTC EVO 3D but will also be available on other HTC devices, using the HTC cloud.

While on the subject of movies, the EVO 3D comes with the Blockbuster On Demand app with its own library of 2D and 3D content.  Rentals here are the same price at $2.99 to $3.99 each, and while purchases are lower at $4.99 and up.

Gameloft will be pre-loading  a demo version of Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem 3D  as well as their Gameloft Storefront app.  This application will give consumers quick and easy access to 2D and 3D games from the Gameloft repertoire.

Additional software expected on the EVO 3D include YouTube, Facebook, and Qik. Given that the phone is centered around its 3D capabilities, the apps provide a place for users to share their content with others.

    I think it’s great that this phone will be coming with some
    preloaded 3D content. I use the Evo4G I have right now for everything. I’m not usually
    at home a lot because of my full time job at Dish Network and my college
    classes. It’s ok though because phones do so much these days that I can do just
    about anything I would at home right on my phone. For instance I can watch TV
    right on my Evo4G using the Dish Remote app and the Sling Adapter. I can’t wait
    to see what the picture looks like on the qHD screen the Evo3D has! Right now
    Dish has a really great deal for the Sling that normally would cost $99. For a
    limited time if you buy the Sling through a representative you get a MasterCard
    Gift card for $99. That covers the cost of the Sling but keep in mind that you
    need to have a ViP722 or ViP722k receiver for the Sling Adapter to work.

    It’s no secret that this is the device of the summer and will be the best as the coming months move forward. This device can and will STAND UP TO ANY AND ALL DEVICES AS TIME MOVES FORWARD. Content is KING and with HTC WATCH as well as all the other assorted items ie, HTC LIKES, HTC HUB, HTC.COM tecnology wise this is THE BEST DEVICE IN THE INDUSTRY. With all the other options netflix, blockbuster, android market movies as well as google music my evo 3d will be BLAZING with so much viewable content that I will never be bored wherever I am. The newest member of the Evo family will be out soon now we know we can place our current Evo 4g into retirement sent off in a happy way.
