Sprint reps have confirmed that the HTC EVO 3D has been discontinued. Engadget has learned that the 3D smartphone is no longer available via the carrier's online store. However, there are still some EVO 3Ds floating around Sprint retail outfits, but supplies are limited.

Sprint Discontinued

Sprint and HTC are preparing to rollout the HTC EVO 4G LTE in Q2 of 2012. The planned $199 phone features a 4.7-inch 720p HD display and 1.3MP front-facing camera. The backside features a 8MP camera and spring-loaded kickstand. The rear side is made of black aluminum, and a removable polycarbonate plastic.

Glasses free 3D technology made the HTC EVO 3D a very popular smartphone. Making it surprising that there is only one 3D tablet readily available in the world. The Hong-Kong based company Brando is the only retailer that offers this type of device. For $199 you can get the clunky named Gadmei T863 3D.

The Gadmei T863 3D features an 8-inch glasses free 3D capable lenticular display, 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and support for a wide variety of 2D and 3D photo and video formats. It runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), but only features a 1GHz Arm Cortex A9 processor. Not bad for $200 considering it also offers 8GB of built-in storage, HDMI output, and a micro SDHC slot.

Best Buy is clearing out their inventory of HTC Flyers by discounting the $500 tablet to $100. BestBuy.com has sold out, but maybe one of your local stores has a few left. It's worth the call. I'm not sure why they're reducing their stock, maybe they're making room for the Kindle Fire, which has already sold over 95,000 units before its release.

Amazon is also offering the HTC EVO 3D for $50 to new Sprint customers. Existing Sprint customers can nab one for $100. Not a bad deal, you can get a great smartphone and top of the line tablet for around $200!
