Gingerbread for the EVO available June 3rd

You read that title correctly. No ROM. No leaked OTA. No crazy voodoo magic. The folks over at androidcentral have caught wind that you will be able to manually update your EVO to  Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) in two days. For those of you too lazy to manually update, they will be pushing over-the-air updates (OTA) starting on Friday.

Evo 3D Next Month? Sprint Wants Us to Think So, but Unlikely Before the 23rd

Sprint’s been teasing us, and teasing us, and teasing us with hints about the Evo 3D. They like to tote it around in emails and at sprint.com/evo3d with phrases like “Coming soon” and “This summer,” and the most reliable rumors we’ve been able to find point to a release at the end of June. We know how excited you are to get your hands on this — and you’re not alone! Rocking a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, this is one of the most solid phones on the market whether or not you’re into the 3D. However, I’d temper your desires just a tad, as the current rebate schedule as captured by our friends at Android Central goes as far as the 23rd, and the Evo 3D is sadly absent. Sure, this could change, but I wouldn’t be holding my breath…I suspect “the end of June” really means the END of June. So hang in there, and we’ll bring you more as soon as we have something concrete.

Sprint and Motorola to Present Something New on June 9

Sprint and Motorola are having a special invite-only luncheon where there going to have hands-on demos of their “latest collaborations.” No solid word on what these are, but that never stops speculation. It’s likely that they’ll be launching Sprint versions of some of their other devices — the invite does specify more than one — and some early speculation is a rebranding of the Droid X2 or the Atrix. Only time will tell, and we’ll be sure and let you know on the 9th.

$199 Sprint HTC Evo 3D at The Shack with incentives?

Sure, we may not have a confirmed date for the Evo 3D to be released, but what’s to stop Radio Shack from giving us the 411 on the deals it has lined up. The image above explains it all, which originated in an emailing that was sent from Radio Shack, and passed along to the rest of us.

The price of this new device isn’t bad at all at $199 with contract. Now take a look at The Shacks incentive via its ‘Trade & Save Program’. Take your Evo 4G or Evo Shift in to trade and get $100 cash toward the purchase of the Evo 3D. Now this does sound like a pretty enticing deal. They’ve even thrown in a URL – www.radioshack.com/EVO3D – It isn’t live yet, but we’ll just bookmark it and keep checking back.

Either way this could be a good deal for someone. If you received this same email we’d love to hear from you and get your thoughts in the comments below.
