HTC EVO 3D dumped by Vodafone UK, due to “delays”

Some quite sad news has emerged for aspiring owners of HTC’s chunky EVO 3D – UK network Vodafone has decided it won’t be offering the glasses-free 3D Android phone it announced last month after all, due, apparently, to “delays” in the arrival of the phone.

Here’s the statement:

There’s been speculation recently regarding availability of HTC EVO 3D.

We can confirm that due to delays in the launch of the HTC EVO 3D, we no longer intend to include the device in our smartphone range. We’ll be contacting any customers who registered their interest shortly.

We realise this might come as a disappointment, but we’ve got some really exciting handsets in the pipeline. Keep an eye on our coming soon section for all the latest information about the products coming to Vodafone.

We’d imagine the rather lukewarm reception given to LG’s Optimus 3D may also have something to do with it. Cheerio, big fella:

And the EVO 3D is indeed no longer featured on Vodafone’s “coming soon” page. This latest 3D trend hasn’t lasted very long, has it?

    Who isn’t surprised by this news? Who seriously in their right mind would purely purchase a £500 smartphone just because it comes with 3D?! You’d be mental!

    3D is nothing but a gimmick so thank goodness Vodafone got rid! Other manufacturers please do the same!

    So do HTC have anything new flagship-like coming from now until the end of the year? I was thinking of getting the Sensation but after reading XDA the phone is riddled with bugs and dust under the screen problems.

      You’d assume it’d release a couple of new autumn handsets, like the Desire Z and HD last year, just to keep the line-up fresh through the winter. But that’s just a wild assumption.
