Sprint announced Monday that two of its highly anticipated devices, the HTC Evo 3D phone and the EVO View 4G tablet, will be in its stores on June 24.

The EVO 3D is HTC’s glasses-free 3D phone. The handset will cost $199.99 with a two-year agreement. The phone features two 5 MP cameras on the back to capture 2D and 3D video for its 4.3-inch screen.

The phone runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot that makes it 32-GB-capable. It will also act as a mobile hotspot for up to eight devices.

Rates start at $79.99 per month, if you include Sprint’s $10 monthly smartphone fee.

The EVO View 4G is already known to the world as the HTC Flyer, but the Sprint version will be $399.99 and include the tablet’s pen with a two-year contract and a new-line activation. It will also have mobile hotspot capability for up to eight devices and has 32 GB of internal memory.

Rate plans start at $34.99 per month for 3GB of 3G data and unlimited 4G data.

Right now, the HTC Flyer is $799.99 and its stylus will set you back an additional $80. In my review, I said this price was awfully steep for what you get from the Flyer, even though the device was pretty good, overall.

The View/Flyer is a single-core tablet also running Gingerbread, though it’s slated to get a Honeycomb update in the future.

Both Sprint devices are 3G, 4G and WiFi-capable. The mobile hotspot feature costs $29.99 per month.
