For the most part, technology news it typically leaked on the web, long before the general public ever gets wind of it. But that’s not the case this time around. HTC has purchased some ad space in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine which prominently features their 4G lineup. The usual suspects are present (HTC EVO 4G and the T-Mobile G2), but the real highlights of the ad are the unannounced Verizon HTC Thunderbolt and the AT&T HTC Inspire 4G.
We’ve covered the HTC Thunderbolt quite a bit lately. Rumor has it that it will feature many of the same internal components as the European HTC Desire HD. We’re hoping Verizon will finally get around to announcing the handset this week so we can get some hands-on time with it while we’re at CES.
Sure, the HTC Thunderbolt is exciting, but if you’re an AT&T customer you’re probably overjoyed to see that they will finally be offering a 4G handset. Details on the HTC Inspire 4G simply don’t exist. The only other time we have heard about the handset is when HTC file their trademark application with the USPTO in late 2010. Our guess (based solely on the image) is that the AT&T HTC Inspire 4G will be pretty similar to the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Thunderbolt.
It’s exciting to see AT&T may be finally stepping up their Android game.
