The HTC EVO 3D sprang into view in the UK at around the same time as the LG Optimus 3D, almost 6 months ago. But is that enough time for the novelty to have worn off? Asda’s now selling HTC’s tri-dimensional handset for a criminally low price.
The HTC EVO 3D has appeared on Asda’s website completely unlocked for just £250. That’s a steep £200 drop from the launch price, and makes a big statement about the phone’s popularity. Especially as Asda’s pricing isn’t alone. Expansys is now listing the EVO 3D for £285.
The HTC EVO 3D, when you strip the 3D away, is a pretty solid phone. For £250 you get a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, MicroSD card slot and two 5-Meg cameras.
But are people looking past all that and merely being put off by the 3D? The severely-dropped price would suggest that that’s the case. LG’s not quite so put off, though. The company has just announced a sequel to its 3D offering, the LG Optimus 3D 2.
Has glasses-free 3D in mobile phones yet to find its place in the market, or has it just been a failed experiment? We can’t help but feel like it’s the latter. Watch this space for slashed 3D LG prices..
