Will the EVO 3D have the same crappy stripped down version of Gingerbread that dropped yesterday? If so then I will pass for another manufacturer.

Evo 3D should come with the 3.3.4 the latest Gingerbread and HTC Sence 3.0, and as it was mentioned before (not official), soon, within this year it's supposed to get another upgrade.
