Now here’s an interesting tidbit of information we’ve received from a trusted source for all this Telstra: The Big T is trialing the HTC EVO 3D (codenamed: HTC Shooter) on their network and the device name can be found in their provisioning systems. The HTC EVO 3D has very much the same internals as the HTC Sensation, which is also on Telstra’s provisioning system:
- qHD 4.3″ Super LCD 3D Display
- 1.2GHz Dual-Core CPU MSM8660, Adreno 220 GPU
- 5MP Camera – 1080p @ 24fps (2D), 720p @ 30fps (3D) — 1.3MP Front Camera
- 14.4Mbit / 5.76Mbit HSPA
- Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0
- 1GB RAM / 1GB ROM
Since the internals are so similar to Sensation — besides 3D — Telstra might not be launching the Sensation and instead will launch the EVO 3D as a direct competitor to the LG Optimus 3D which is an exclusive to Optus; or Telstra could launch both the Sensation and EVO 3D and just own the Android scene in Australia. Our source can’t confirm it’s definitely coming to Telstra just yet. We’ll keep this post updated as we work out more details.
