A new update for the EVO Shift 4G apparently started to roll out today, fixing the MMS/SMS sending issue. According to AndroidCentral, the update was planned to go live this Monday 9th, but sources indicated that the update is already available.
If you own one go into “HTC Software Update” in your settings menu, and have a look.
HTC just posted on its Facebook page that next August, it will start rolling out to unlock bootloaders of the newest devices like EVO 3D and Sensation 4G for T-Mobile. The process is two-fold: first, HTC pushes a “maintenance release” to the phones, but this won’t mean a thing until step two — releasing the actual unlocking tool — is complete in early September.
“We wanted to provide an update on HTC’s progress with bringing bootloader unlocking to our newest phones. We know how excited some of you are for this capability, and we’ve put significant resources behind making this change as soon as possible. While we wish we could flip a simple switch and unlock all bootloaders across our device portfolio, this is actually a complex challenge that requires a new software build and extensive testing to deliver the best possible customer experience.
We’re thrilled to announce today that software updates to support bootloader unlocking will begin rolling out in August for the global HTC Sensation, followed by the HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile USA and the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. We’re in the testing phase for the unlocking capability now, and we expect it to be fully operational by early September for devices that have received the software updates. We’ll continue rolling out the unlocking capability over time to other devices as part of maintenance releases and new shipments. HTC continues its commitment to unlocking bootloaders and supporting the developer community.
Because of the importance of this community to us, please expect an update on this about every few weeks as we make progress toward launch. Thank you for your patience and continued support!”

HTC EVO 3D, America’s first 4G smartphone with a 4.3-inch 3D qHD display. Create and stream HD video, view it in 3D and share it easily. Quickly download movies and enjoy a Flash®-enabled web browsing experience that takes advantage of the speed of the Sprint 3G or 4G network and the power of a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon® processor.
When Sprint launched the HTC EVO 4G last summer, the company instantly became the provider of one of the most desirable Android phones. Suddenly, every other phone was compared to the EVO 4G and most of those other phones didn’t look good by comparison. The calendar pages keep flipping and the EVO 4G is still a great phone, but it is no longer the most powerful Android phone.
Now that the HTC EVO 3D has been officially outed by Sprint, let’s see how it stacks up against the current leader of the pack, the EVO 4G. In almost every area that matters, the EVO 3D is a serious upgrade to the EVO 4G. The removal of the kickstand is unfortunate, though I guess the dedicated camera button is supposed to make up for it. It’s too bad we can’t have both. Or maybe we’re just getting greedy since we’re already getting two cameras, two LED flashes, two cores in the CPU, and two HD video recording formats.
We know you are waiting for the EVO 3D, but, do you have movies in 3D to watch on your phone?. that is not a problem. Sprint just announced that the EVO 3D will be loaded with The Green Hornet in 3D and Drive Angry” with Nicolas Cage . The EVO 3D will also come with the HTC Watch app, which gives you access to 2D and 3D movies, as well as on-demand television programs. You can buy or rent and download movies, and you can save as many as five on HTC’s service for watching on other HTC devices with the HTC Watch app.
According with our friends from AndroidCentral, the new EVO 3D will come to Sprint the fourth week of June. Nothing yet is official but rumors about those days are circulating on the net. Also, RadioShack is planing to release the Evo 3D this June 4th.
Here some specifications :
4.3-inch 3D qHD capacitive 960 x 540 px display
1730 mAh battery
4GB of internal memory
8GB microSD card pre-installed (expandable to 32GB)
HTC had a policy of locking the Android bootloaders for its Thunderbolt, Incredible S, Sensation and EVO 3D, but the company’s policy of locking bootloaders is gone. This is the Facebook post form HTC page:
“There has been overwhelmingly customer feedback that people want access to open bootloaders on HTC phones. I want you to know that we’ve listened. Today, I’m confirming we will no longer be locking the bootloaders on our devices. Thanks for your passion, support and patience.”
Sprint is now offering the Evo 4G with Android 2.3, very well known as Gingerbread. So far we don’t know if the new phones will come with OS 2.3 built in or and update will arrive soon.
The EVO is powered by the Qualcomm QSD8650 chipset which contains a Snapdragon Scorpion microprocessor clocked at 1 GHz and an embedded Adreno 200 graphics chip capable of up to 22 million triangles per second. It features 512MB of eDRAM which allows for a smoother experience with Android OS, applications, and the HTC Sense user interface. The device also features 1024MB of built-in ROM which is mainly used for the system software.
