I really fail to see why anyone would want a 3d phone.

I'm putting money down on 1 of 4 things.

SVDO
CDMA iPhone
Nationwide 4g coverage (they just threw up towers in my area)
High-end dual core phone (no 3d)

I'm actually going with a slight bias towards 1 and 4 ... SVDO with a new high end phone that supports it (verizon and the HTC thunderbird appear to be doing this)

I put a little bit of each rumor together...

A tablet shaped like David Blaine's double headed penis in 3D?

Hoping are we? You'd buy 3.

Nationwide 4G is my guess because the $69.99 plan is going up $10 (not for EVO though, we already have the premium 4G).

That's also something I've considered. I've been paying the $10 "Premium Data" too... I'm fairly confident they're pushing a huge 4g rollout soon. It's been popping up all over the country in very very small spots like my town... basically about 1 squared mile lol

holy fudge, their big announcement is a Kyocera Dual Screen fugly looking Android phone. A more exciting news would have been if David Blaine made the phone catch fire on stage...what a letdown!!!
