There’s been a lot of hoo-ha about 3D images and video content of late, but to date not much of this has translated into anything really practical. However, HTC’s latest smartphone, the EVO 3D, might just change all that. Featuring two 5-megapixel cameras and an 11 cm stereoscopic qHD (quarter full HD resolution) screen, it not only allows you to capture 3D photos and video on the fly, but also lets you view content without having to wear those annoying glasses.
The handset is driven by a powerful, 1,2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, delivering a fast browsing experience, instant image capture and smooth HD (720p) video playback. The camera performs well in low-light conditions, thanks to its wide, f/2.2 maximum aperture, and videos are recorded in 720p resolution at up to 30 frames per second. Oh, and you can switch effortlessly between 2D and 3D. Price: about R6 900. Visit www.htc.com.
