UK sales of the HTC EVO 3D will not begin until September 2011, HTC has confirmed. The GSM model – announced back in late June – was originally expected to go on sale in Europe in July, offering a UMTS/HSPA version of the CDMA handset that launched in the US last month.
HTC UK revealed the delay to our sister site SlashGear. “We can confirm that the HTC EVO 3D will be available to UK customers through Carphone Warehouse from September 2011” a spokesperson said; the news comes shortly after UK carrier Vodafone revealed it no longer planned to range the EVO 3D due to concerns over device delays.
No reason for the delay has been given, though we’re presuming it has to do with the GSM radio in the EVO 3D since the CDMA version is already available now. The smartphone is HTC’s first to use a glasses-free 3D display, with a twin 5-megapixel camera array on the back so that owners can shoot their own photos and video.
