No kickstand?

No kickstand?

I am a current Evo 4G owner. I am wondering if this Evo 3D is for sure going to be missing the kickstand? It seems odd that the next Evo would have a huge upgrade to the display (3D, aspect ratio, and resolution) for better viewing of movies and videos, and take away the kickstand that I currently use to view videos on my current Evo.  Is this set in stone or is there a chance that the Evo 3D will ship with a kickstand?  Does anyone know why the kickstand was removed? It just doesn't make any sense to me why the kickstand would be left out.

Seriously, no kickstand?... It's the only chance we have ( without buying something ) at protecting the camera lens.  Edited: Did some searching and it's been stated they'll make a case backing with a kickstand.  Not that I use a case, but it's definitely an option.

I was worried about the kickstand too but I guess if a case is all that is offered then that will have to do. They gotta have a kickstand with the new graphics!!!

Re: No kickstand?

Many ppl were complaining about the kickstand not working, because the evo was very easily flipping, specially if you had a case on it, so I guess the decided to just take it off. Personally I haven't really used the kickstand that much, so no difference for me if it comes with or not.

Re: No kickstand?

I use my kickstand a lot to watch videos and listen to music. I do not like laying my phone face down and the speaker is on the back!

Re: No kickstand?

Exactly!

The reasoning for not including the kickstand on the Evo 3D is they wanted to add all the extras without adding the weight.

While that is fine, in that sense, I hope they can come up with an optional back for the phone that can replace the current back and not just some add-on that adds girth to the phone, such as was shown in this prototype.

would be BEST if they could create a battery cover that had the kickstand built into it rather than a case itself. Just make a slightly thicker battery cover.
