Telstra HTC 4G Revealed as HTC Holiday, Coming First Half 2012


We’ve seen the HTC Holiday, now known as the HTC Raider 4G, being put through the paces on AT&T’s fledgling LTE network, and more recently learned of its planned debut in South Korea. Telstra in Australia had revealed that it would be getting an LTE model of its own, called simply the HTC 4G, and now that phone has been revealed to be a Holiday as well.

A shot of the Telstra HTC 4G shows it pulling down a decent 19Mbps in a speed test, not quite as fast as what we’ve seen the phone do on AT&T, but it did manage to eclipse those AT&T figures in regards to upload performance. In both cases, though, we should really wait and see how the phones perform on an LTE network congested with users before drawing conclusions.

The release date for the HTC 4G is extremely loose at the moment, with Telstra not committing to anything more definite than sometime in the first half of next year. At that rate, it’s likely we’ll see the Raider 4G hit AT&T in the US well in advance.
