Best Buy ‘Quietly’ Begins HTC EVO 3D Pre-Sales, Motorola Droid and Droid X2 Appear in Computer System


Best Buy is quietly accepting pre-orders for the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint, but don’t expect the company to be pushing pre-sales in stores. Employees are under direct orders to only offer pre-sales to those inquiring about the EVO 3D. The reason for the tight-lipped secrecy is due to no official release date being announced for the device. Employees are instructed to only refer to a summer timeframe for the EVO 3D’s launch.

A pair of other handsets slated for launch sometime this summer have also appeared in Best Buy’s computer system. The Motorola Droid 3 and Motorola Droid X2 are listed complete with model numbers XT862 and MB870 respectively. You will notice this changes the naming scheme for the original Droid line, which featured model numbers A855 and A955.

  1. Looks like it also says Droid Bionic..

  2. Hopefully the release of the EVO 3D isn’t too far behind

  3. Sounds like my tip from a Sprint RM could be very true:


    I think we may see this release date sticking.

    1. Well, they won’t have to worry or perhaps even wait for an iPhone 5 release in June. It ain’t happening. If you read the Verizon transcripts from their conference call, when questioned on the revenue hit they’ll take for subsidizing the iPhone 5 they specifically stated that no such hit will come in the 2nd quarter.

  4. No timeframe for the D3? That sucks cause I’m waiting for it

  5. Mhm, I’d rather take the Galaxy S II.
    I have my 3DS for 3d, it would only get in the way on a smartphone anyway :S

  6. I preordered mine earlier, $50! Now just need a release date and a final price (hopefully $200-250). Can’t wait

    1. you’re a lucky person.

  7. If the Droid 3 has 4G It will probably have my money. Glad to see the bionic in there too.

  8. Try playing Solitaire Challenge….it’s great: http://goo.gl/s71N6

  9. The wait won’t be long now.

  10. Been sitting on an upgrade for months, if I dont get a dual core LTE phone soon my head might assplode
