AT&T has announced another smartphone that is likely to make you want to switch from whatever super small screen that you are currently trying to navigate through. If you do not have a smartphone with 4G LTE support, you might want to check out the new HTC Vivid from AT&T. AT&T has some really nice phones on their offering list, about 60 to be exact, and even though they are not ranked well in customer service satisfaction, it might be time to consider a change if you want a feature rich smartphone.
The HTC Vivid 4G LTE comes with a huge 4.5-inch qHD display that has an above average resolution of 540×960 pixels. With that large screen you would certainly need some nice power on the inside and that is provided by a super fast dual-core process that is clocked at 1.2 GHz. The smartphone comes with 16GB of onboard storage which can be upgraded very easily with the help of a 32GB microSD card. The phone is powered by the Android 2.3.4 operating system. The HTC Vivid smartphone comes with an 8MP camera that is equipped with a 28mm lens which will also capture video at 1080p HD. The phone comes with a video editor and slow-motion playback so you can play around with the HD videos you record.
Some of the other features that are included in the new HTC Vivid 4G LTE are SMS, MMS and threaded messaging, IMAP, POP3, SMTP email systems and support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections. The Vivid also comes with a USB 2.0 port and a micro USB for charging and external storage. The new HTC Vivid was officially released today and should be available in most areas around the 6th of November.
The smartphone comes with support for GSM and UMTS technology, as well as, HSPA, UMTS, HSUPA, EDGE, GPRS and LTE data networks. With an additional camera on the front of the phone, you also will have support for video chat software as well. The phones price is comparable to others in the same league and you will be able to get the phone for $199 with a new two-year contract of course. AT&T has 4G LTE data plans priced the same at the 3G plans and will cost you around $15 a month starting out.
