HTC Holiday bringing 4G LTE to AT&T by Christmas


We’ve seen the HTC Holiday in the wild already, but it’s nice to see a second device get caught on camera. This time around the phone is a little less broken and looks a little different, since it does not feature the three connection pins on the two-toned back panel as we saw last time. Specs on the HTC Holiday include a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 and 1.3 megapixel rear and front cameras, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 all running on Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.0.

The HTC Holiday is also expected to be one of the first 4G phones on AT&T with support for HSPA+ and LTE. It seems like HTC is making a habit of being the first manufacturer to roll out phones with 4G support on every network, regardless of the 4G technology they are using.

If you thought the HTC Holiday was an odd name for a phone, you probably won’t be pleased to hear that it could launch at the HTC Waikiki. The HTC Holiday’s main competition will be the Samsung Galaxy S II. We know a lot of you are leaning towards Samsung’s new flagship phone due to its unrivaled performance, but are any of you tempted to pick up the HTC Holiday with its larger higher resolution display?

    I love me some HTC, but that camera seems kinda stale looking. Reminds me of a Blackberry camera.

  • issac4760

    Nah. Does not appeal to me very much.


    its getting to the point where every phone that is announced is sort of BEASTLY !

    • aj

      Yeah basically thats the cycle of technology.there will be a growing trend toward certain specs then some one will introduce a new standard(4.3/evo, dual core/atrix) and then the other manufactures try to figure out ways to slightly out spec the other guy till all devices get that way then someone will introduce something new will be the standard after that( looking at the htc vigor which may be the first american hd display phone and 1.5 dual core processor phone) something else will replace. THANKS TECHNOLOGY I WILL NEVER BE HAPPY OR SATISFIED. CURSE MY LOVE OF TECHNOLOGY!!!!!!!!!!!…. Jk.

    With the support HTC provide to their HTC phone, It will give tough competition to Samsung Galaxy S II.

  • Sarah Palin (the republican hood rat)

    The perfect phone for me

    Just a question, (A noobish one at that) but can AT&T’s current 4g phones operate on LTE if they activate it? Like, do they have the radio for it?

    • Nick Gray

      AT&T currently does not have any phone with LTE radios. It’s a different technology which requires a new chip.

  • Ben

    I love me some HTC. Normally i would prefer stock Android but if i have to go with a custom UI give me sense.

  • triangle

    This will be a nice phone if you’re on AT&T, but for my money, give me the Droid Prime!

    AT&T won’t even have LTE rolled out for most of its network this year. In addition, with the Prime, you’ll get ICS, an HD screen with SAMOLED+ and pure google.

    The Droid Prime is shaping up to be the best phone of 2011.
