The HTC Evo 3D is alive and kicking in the UK and available to get your hands on now.

The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy have announced pre-order is now online for the dimensionally-advanced handset for a next-day delivery and confirmed an HTC Evo 3D UK release date of 6 September to buy it in person

However, it's not going to be cheap - the Evo 3D will set you back £36 per month on a (likely) two year deal - far more than the HTC Sensation, which comes in at £30 per calendar unit.

Phone from the flames

There was a worry that the HTC Evo 3D wouldn't be available on contract in the UK after Vodafone pulled out of a deal to stock the handset citing delays of the device last month.

But it looks like fans of the third dimension will now get their wish and can try out a 3D screen complete with HTC's Sense UI (which sadly doesn't manage to pop out of the display too, despite offering 3D animations).

Be warned though: it's not the best 3D phone on the market according to our HTC Evo 3D review, as that title belongs to the LG Optimus 3D - our in-depth look at the phone noted: "The idea of 3D on a phone has potential, but it's not as good for overall smartphone use as the Samsung Galaxy S2."
