The HTC EVO 3D was just spotted last night on CBS's Survivor, one of the longest-running reality series on primetime television. It appeared towards the beginning of the episode, as a few of the contestants found the device hidden in a wooden Sprint box near a tree. They opened the box, only to discover that there is some kind of clue on the screen, in addition to several "tree mail" video messages from loved ones that are waiting for the various contestants.
I've never regularly watched the show, so this was the first time that I've heard of "tree mail." Let's just say I might have accidentally shot some coffee through my nose, but luckily it wasn't hot.
Anyway, it's interesting that Sprint is still spending money to display the EVO 3D so prominently on television, even though it's trying to get rid of it and make room for newer LTE devices. Oh, well – I guess we'll never know what the marketing geniuses at Sprint are really thinking.
