I like the my Evo. Root it and get the wireless tether. But beware the battery life isn't very good.
Unrooted here, but there was an official patch pushed out a week or so ago that improved my battery life quite a bit. I can easily make it through a whole day without charging and doing casual surfing / email checking / etc.
OP: Evo is still a great phone. If you're somewhat "meh" about spending another 100 bucks, I'd just do the original over the 3d version, though the 3d version does have a faster processor and the ability to take 3d pics is sort of neat.
