HTC T8290 is HTC Max 4G, Now Officially Announced
This HTC beauty that has just been announced is not only a jaw-dropping smartphone with an 8GB of Flash memory but also the world’s first GSM/WiMAX phone. In case you’re familiar with the HTC T8920 name, know that it’s the same thing with MAX 4G, the monster you can check out in the picture below.
This extremely sexy handset will be available in Russia starting November 26th and it has the most impressive specs list I’ve seen all year. Among the features of the hot HTC smartphone we must mention a Qualcomm ESM7206A processor (528 MHz), Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, 256MB ROM, 288MB RAM and a TFT LCD touchscreen display (3.8 inch) with a 480 x 800 WVGA resolution.
HTC MAX 4G measures 113.5 mm x 63.1 mm x 13.9 mm, weighs 151 grams (with battery) and supports tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (900/1800/1900 MHz) connectivity and Yota Mobile WiMAX 2.5-2.7 GHz. The device keeps it TouchFLO 3D interface, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi and there’s also a secondary VGA camera on the specs list.
Finally, in spite of all those features, the battery of the new HTC is still decent, a Li-Pol unit (1500 mAh) that offers 420 minutes of GSM talk time, or 230 minutes of VoIP talk time. The handset will “live” for about 350 hours in GSM standby mode or up to 50 hours in VoIP standby mode.
