As always, HTC Sense is skinned over Android, bringing its new HTCSense.com features.The HTC EVO 3D has an extra large 1730 mAh battery that’s rated to provide up to 7.5 hours of talktime. A GSM offering is already listed up on HTC’s site, but there are no details as to carriers or launch regions. The 4.3-inch phone is not diminutive, and weighs a hefty 170 grams. It offers the latest connectivity options, with Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and even a MHL port that works for USB and HDMI.

HTC also announced another 7-inch tablet, essentially the same as the HTC Flyer, except that it bears both CDMA and WiMAX radios, and, its aluminium unibody is black instead of the silver of the Flyer. It bears the same specs all around – the same 1.5GHz single-core processor, Gingerbread OS, and 1024×600-pixel screen.
