HTC unlocked phones has made another mammoth announcement, just in time for the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show. The HTC EVO 4G will be receiving another model of the phone, and this time on a completely new carrier. The phone will feature a 4.3 inch touch screen display and will be called the Inspire 4G, running on a 4G network provided by AT&T.
The announcement comes just days before the Consumer Electronics Show. Many companies have opted to make their announcements prior to the show to build anticipation for the booths and event that will take place at the show. Along with the excellent LCD display, the phone will also offer an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1 GHZ CPU that should enable it to run just about any app available. It will also utilize the Android 2.2 operating system that features HTC’s customized Sense UI, which allows users to use a “Find my Phone” feature that is very similar to the feature that was recently released by Apple for their unlocked iPhone 4.
HTC continues to impress in the days leading up to the Consumer Electronics Show, and has made a number of huge announcements including the development of their own tablet device.
It will be interesting to see how much hype this announcement receives, especially considering that the phone has already been released. The upgraded features should draw a few new users over to the phone, but the fact that it will be released on a new carrier with 4G capabilities is undoubtedly the biggest draw of the device.
The Inspire 4G is a huge upgrade for a device that has already been immensely popular throughout its history. HTC might be the underdog in the saturated mobile market, but they continue to impress with wonderful deals and excellent devices that push the ever expanding envelope for the company.
