Gametel (your ripoff cousin) has a nice spec page that shows the dimensions of the device; it may be good to create a similar page for the iControlPad rather than just a list of some phones that work (I have been Google searching the dimensions of phones on the list to try to see if any are 70mm or above:
This sounds like a good idea actually.Might be more efficient.

Edit - oops, I see this is a little old. I will still do it.

On taller phones the top and bottom of the phone will rest on the rubber pads but they are soft enough that I think they would just squish down to accomodate.

If the phone is too thick for the actual slot then worst case scenario you would need to drill a new hole in the universal mount so it is slightly taller and the phone would rest on the rubber sides and front lip of the ICP rather than in the groove of the controller (like the iphone does).
You could even get some foam (like weather stripping, they have it at walmart or home depot) and fill in the slot in the controller, it would take a very small strip, and your phone would rest on that.
But, yeah, I'll measure the actual width tonight between the lip on the controller and the universal mount.
On taller phones the top and bottom of the phone are probably going to be resting on the rubber sides. They are nice and soft though so I think the phone will just squish into them. I haven't really used the universal mount yet since I just got it and mostly wanted it to pair with my laptop. I have a Nexus S and the curved screen might give me some issues since the curve effectively makes the phone seem like it is about 13mm thick if you just lay it down on its screen on a table and measure its height. Hard to explain but I will probably have to do the same thing that someone with a really thick phone would do like I mentioned above due to the curve in my screen.
The controller feels awesome though. The buttons and d-pad work and feel great. You can easily slide it into your pocket and it feels exactly like a second cell phone.

As for thickness. The gap between the lip of the ICP and the universal clamp is 13mm. Should be fine for the EVO 3D all the way around. You can see the rubber sides easy here. They are real soft.

Also thanks for taking pictures, I didn't find a single photo that would properly show the top of the device, let alone a measurement. Good to see the rubber sides won't cause trouble as well.
If there was a thanks button, I'd press the shit out of it

In case anyone is curious my Nexus S fits just fine without any modification. I just added a piece of foam padding...similar to the included tape but I used some different stuff I had which is a little thicker to the clamp and to the ICP. The foam actually adds enough of a gap that my power button doesn't get pressed when the Nexus is in the ICP which is great since the power button is on the side.
