Once again, the best toys always find their way into other places well before they ever show up in most parts of South East Asia, and it appears that HTC's latest smartphone is an excellent example of the aforementioned situation. Apparently, the upcoming HTC EVO 3D has been confirmed for both an American and European launch, with no mention about a possible Asia-Pacific launch anytime soon.
For a smartphone OEM that has its roots in Asia, HTC does not seem to be interested in giving first dibs to the Asian markets when it comes to introducing new smartphones. Rather, it is usually the American markets that score bragging rights for being the first to get new smartphones, with Europe coming in at a close second place.
Unfortunately for Asian HTC fans, it seems that this status quo is not going to be changed any time soon, especially if the latest news about the new HTC EVO 3D smartphone is to be taken into consideration. While most Americans are fully aware of the fact that they will be able to get their hands on an EVO 3D "sometime this summer", Europeans were left guessing as to whether the smartphone will ever make its way over to their shores.
Well, the good news (for the Europeans) is that HTC has seemingly confirmed that the EVO 3D will eventually be available for sale in some European countries. According to various online reports, HTC France spilled the beans about the HTC EVO 3D's availability by posting in the company's official Twitter feed that the smartphone will be available in France, and that it will even be sold under the same name.
The launch date and retail price for the HTC EVO 3D in Europe has yet to be confirmed, although we'd suppose European consumers would be able to take comfort in the fact that they are secure in the knowledge about a certain device having been confirmed to be (eventually) made available for sale in their region. That being said, the hardware specifications remain unchanged, so Europeans can also rest assured that their EVO 3D will be the very same 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon totting, dual-camera, glasses-free 3D smartphone that is due to start selling in the US sometime this summer.
At the very least, having some knowledge about product availability is definitely much better than being kept completely in the dark, don't you think?
