After hearing about it last month, we learned this morning that Best Buy has begun to take pre-orders on the HTC EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D on the Rogers network. Canadians, this is an excellent deal – even better than if you were to purchase it through Rogers directly. The EVO 3D comes in at just $99 under a three-year contract, while the Optimus 3D is $49 with the same terms. The EVO even has an unlocked bootloader right out of the box. To those  of you from the great white north, do you plan to upgrade?

HTC EVO 3D accessories coming to Sprint and Best Buy – video dock, holster and cases

htcofficialaccessories

You gotta love when a company make a little tiny change to their products, and its the one change that everyone complains about, forcing the company to plea for your forgiveness by launching other products to help ease the pain. Remember when hotels used to give free Wi-Fi? Well, similarily, if you want a kickstand for your HTC EVO 3D, you’ll need to buy the video dock, one of 3 new official accessories from HTC for the EVO 3D.

Along with the video dock (priced at $49.99), you can also get a phone cover for $19.99, and a Holster with Shield Combo for $24.99. Therefore, if you want the Wi-Fi (kickstand for the HTC EVO 3D), you’ll need to start paying for it (video dock at $49.99). At least HTC recognizes they needed to do something, unlike the Apple iPad and it’s ever-missing SD card support for expanded storage. See what I did there? Bong!
