AT&T Teases 4G Phone HTC Inspire 4G, Placed in Same ad As Thunderbolt
The latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine shows an ad that finally confirms the name of HTC Thunderbolt, Verizon’s first LTE handset, but it also mentions a new device, the HTC Inspire 4G. The latter is meant for AT&T, that doesn’t yet have a 4G network, but is likely to brand its HSPA+ infrastructure as 4G.
We remind you that HTC Thunderbolt will debut tomorrow, January 6th, during CES 2011, after a ton of leaks over the past week. AT&T’s move seems pretty logical, since everyone is launching 4G phones and the iPhone exclusivity was lost to Verizon, so they’re also going with the “4G” branding.
Inspire remains a mystery right now and its specs should be similar to the ones on Desire HD, according to speculations. More will be revealed at CES!
