Included with the last press release along side the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket was the announcement of the HTC Vivid. I Thought we should focus on these two devices separately since the Vivid is not a follow up to an already released device. You may remember the Vivid by its code name, HTC Raider (which is its name in some other regions still). The Vivid is features a 4.5-inch qHD display, a 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor and 8MP camera with 1080p video. It also features a dual LED flash on the rear.
AT&T is launching its 4G LTE network to more regions on Nov 6th and will be launching both the HTC Vivid and Samsung Skyrocket at the same time. This move will easily help bring in customers that want faster data speeds and a phone that can support it all at the same time.
They Vivid is said to launch at $199.99 on a new two-year contract. While the slightly more powerful Skyrocket is set to come in slightly higher at $229.99.
Realize the full power of LTE on the HTC Vivid with fast web browsing, powered by a dual core 1.2 GHz processor and a brilliant 4.5-inch qHD display. Music and Android Market apps download and are ready in a snap, or photos and video are a breeze to upload after using the exceptional camera for low-light photos and full widescreen HD video.
HTC Vivid features the acclaimed HTC Sense user experience, which includes a customizable active lockscreen that transforms the display into a real-time window to your most important information and content, such as social updates, photos, weather or stock updates that are viewed by simply waking up the display. Sharper graphics, vibrant animations and new widgets make HTC Sense better than ever and, by continuing to focus on the details, HTC provides a more cinematic and immersive multimedia experience with stunning imagery and audible weather effects.
