Rogers Bringing EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D Exclusives to Canada

Canadian Rogers fans out there have something to cheer about if they were excited about either of these devices. They’ve confirmed through their blog that both the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Optimus 3D will be available this summer and are set to take preorders sometime soon. Two great 3D devices and they’ve both exclusive, so there’s good reason to give Rogers a real consideration if you’re shopping for both devices and a carrier.

What’s more is that preordering the device also doubles as a contest entry. Check out these quick details from Rogers:

Starting next week, new customers can pre-order either of these devices through an upcoming microsite and you’ll then be automatically entered into a contest. If you pre-order the LG Optimus 3D, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a 55”LG Cinema 3D HDTV. If you pre-order the HTC EVO 3D, you’ll be entered to win a $2,500 MasterCard gift card. Contest closes August 15th.

Existing Rogers customers can exclusively reserve either of these devices through the Rogers Reservation System, until July 23rd. Be amongst the first to experience a 3D smartphone in Canada, by securing a place “in line” for a device without having to visit a store or call in.

What’s the first thing you would film in 3D?

Contest Details

Each closes August 15, 2011. Open to residents of Canada having reached to the age of majority.

    OOOO!!!! FINALLY Rogers get some dual core love! I was getting jealous of Bell owners that can get the Sensation and SGSII!!! lol

  • samuelmaskell

    rogers has always had tons of LG phones and they’ve always been horrible. I highly doubt the optimus 3d will be any different. The EVO 3D looks kind of good but I’d still rather have the sensation or the SGS2. Still, it makes them looks less pathetic when compared to bell. Now telus really looks like a joke.

  • RockingmyEvo3d

    They should truly enjoy the HTC EVO 3D. This device is great in so many ways.

  • No Name

    Who needs 3D when it failed wide adoption? I’m waiting for SE Ray.

  • ILikeStake

    Why are they getting both? They should have just picked up the Optimus instead of the under performing 3VO.

    3D – what a waste of time – a gimmick for a phone feature. Rogers get some real HTC phones please.

      The 3D feature is pretty weak, but the Evo 3D is a 1GB dual-core MSM8660 with an Adreno 220 GPU…even ignoring the 3D gimmick, that is a pretty potent device. In some reports it has yielded poor battery life but that is almost certainly a software issue, given its huge battery and very good battery life on similarly equipped handsets.
