HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO View 4G to launch June 24

Sprint today officially announced the next devices in its popular HTC EVO lineup: the EVO 3D smartphone and the EVO View 4G tablet.

We got an early look at both devices from HTC back in March, and not much has changed since then. The EVO 3D is still being touted as America's first "glasses-free" 3D smartphone, while the View 4G is being labeled "the first 4G tablet" on the market. 

Both devices are set to launch June 24 exclusively from Sprint. The EVO 3D will run $199.99 with a qualifying two-year contract, and the View 4G will run $399.99. They can be pre-ordered at any Sprint store with the purchase of a $50 gift card.

Here's a quick spec recap:

Powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC's Sense UI. In addition to the 720p 3D HD video camera, it includes a 1.3-inch megapixel front-facing camera for video chat, WiMAX capability, DLNA support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, stereo Bluetooth, and a 1730 mAh Lithium-ion battery.

Dimensions: 5.0" x 2.6" x .48" (LxWxT) 
Weight: 6 ounces
Main display: 4.3-inch 3D QHD capacitive display (960 x 540)
Memory: 4GB Internal memory/1GB RAM; Expandable memory: 8GB microSD card included; supports up to 32GB.

Boasts a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 touchscreen, a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel main camera with HD-video capability, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing one for video chat, and the latest version of HTC's Sense UI on top of Android Gingerbread (which will be updated to Honeycomb in the near future). It also includes 32GB internal memory, 1GB RAM, a microSD slot, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, and a 4000 mAh Lithium-ion battery.

For a limited time, customers will receive the HTC Scribe pen (a $79.99 value) for free with purchase of the View tablet.

Which is sad considering the poor battery life of the EVO. I take it the Thunderbolt lasts 15 minutes under use then?

Funny...I get 16-18 hours on mine after getting rid of Sense and using better kernels.

Man, I'm torn for my next upgrade. The EVO 3D has all the hardware I'm looking for except it doesn't have an OLED screen. Are there any new OLED phones lined up for Sprint?

My Thunderbolt is stock and I still get 16+ hours with moderate usage, 2 days if the phone has seen really light usage and 9 - 12 under heavy usage. Non-stop usage (screen is always on) then the battery life drops down to 6 - 8 hours. The only thing I changed were the notifications and that I would prefer to check my mail manually and FB notifications are just useless and stupid.

This isn't bad considering my original Droid has given me similar battery life yet it's not LTE and has a smaller screen.
