[Full Vivid Review] One of AT&T's first Android devices with LTE connectivity, the HTC Vivid (previously codenamed "Holiday") released in November 2011. The Vivid comes running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the latest version of HTC's Sense UI. Inside, the Vivid has a 1.2 GHz dual core Qualcomm APQ8060 processor with 1 GB of RAM. The Vivid's sharp qHD (540 x 960) display measures 4.5-inches diagonal. It also features two cameras, one front facing 1.3-megapixel camera and a rear facing eight-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and autofocus.

    Now that the HTC Vivid has been updated with Sense 3.6 and Ice Cream Sandwich, we are returning with a new video to take a closer look at the changes therein. Overall, the device seems to be snappier and the slight changes to Sense are for the better on all fronts. We would have liked to see a more unified ICS interface or even Sense 4.0, but HTC has made it very clear they do not want to confuse or alienate their existing customer base. Unfortunately, a software update cannot change hardware issues, and our review score still stands.

    This time last week, we had already seen the initial international release of HTC's Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Vivid/Raider/Velocity, and had just told you about a dialer trick owners of the Vivid on AT&T could use to try their luck at pulling down the update a little early. If that failed for you, or you've been patient enough to wait for the official release, HTC's US division has tweeted its announcement that the update is finally becoming available to A&T subscribers through official channels, starting as of today. In addition to HTC making its announcement, AT&T has update its ...

    A couple days ago, we heard about the availability of an Ice Cream Sandwich update for HTC's Velocity in Australia. As the Velocity is the same hardware as the Vivid on AT&T in the States and the Raider on other networks around the globe, we've been hoping we might hear more about the update hitting some other carriers. Notifications may not be going out just yet, but with a little dialer magic, you might have some luck getting ICS on a Vivid today. Right now, this is pretty hit-and-miss, with some users reporting success, and others not seeing anything happen. From your Vivid, dial ...

    It's certainly taken long enough, but as spring starts to loom on the horizon, we're finally starting to see Ice Cream Sandwich updates arrive for existing Androids in decent numbers. Just today, Samsung hooked owners of its Galaxy S II up with the new software. Now it's HTC's turn, as we're hearing that the Velocity is currently getting its ICS update in Australia. The HTC Velocity may be better known to you as the Raider 4G or the HTC Vivid in the States. The manufacturer has talked in the past about its plans to bring Android 4.0 to the Vivid, as well as the Raider, and seeing it hit ...

    The HTC Vivid was right there on the list HTC published when it talked about upcoming Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich updates for devices like the Rezound, Amaze 4G, EVO 3D, EVO Design 4G, Incredible S, Desire S, and Desire HD. We know the refresh should land sometime this month but Vivid owners will also be able to enjoy improved audio on their phones with the addition of Beats By Dr. Dre audio profiles.

The smartphone manufacturer posted a message to Facebook this morning talking about plans for the delivery of its first Ice Cream Sandwich updates in March. We already knew about HTC's plans to start selling phones running Android 4.0 in March, with the launch of ...

    When it was time for AT&T to kick-off service on its new LTE network in the US, the carrier did so with a pair of LTE Androids, including the HTC Vivid. More recently, we've seen the phone prepare for an Australian launch, under the name HTC Velocity 4G. Now we're getting news of plans to introduce the Velocity to European markets as well, and in doing so, bring the continent what will reportedly be its first LTE smartphone. Germany will be the nation to first get its hands on the Velocity, with carrier Vodafone announcing plans to begin sales in the near future. As its LTE network is ...

    Originally codenamed Holiday, the HTC Vivid is one of the newest 4G (LTE) devices from ATT, but not the first LTE phone from HTC. Based on specs alone, this device seems to have a lot going for it, but as we've discovered in the past, sometimes specs aren't enough. And these days, it takes a lot more than blazing download speeds to impress anyone. How does the HTC Vivid stand up to the heavy (but lighter in weight) competition on the market today? Read on to find out. BOX CONTENTS As with most devices these days, there isn't much to be said about the box or the contents therein. You get a ...

    We've all heard the rumors of the next big thing on AT&T. The HTC Holiday promises to be a true contender in what pertains to specs, and this time, we finally get some real world images of what it'll look like, only this time on Craigslist. Surely this is something you won't see being sold around here every day. Sadly you guessed it, they already purchased it. According to XDA, the device was found and bought immediately by the person responsible for posting the images as evidence. Not sure how the screen got cracked though, but the images do a great job in showing us it's real, bound for ...

    It looks like the HTC Holiday prototype that was recently seen on Craigslist has found a new home, thanks to eBay, for $800. The prototype has a cracked display, but the seller claims that the screen is in perfect working order besides that. The HTC Holiday, likely to go by the name Raider, will sport a big 4.5" display with qHD 960x540 resolution, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core CPU, and 1GB of RAM. It'll run on Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.0. It's going to be the first AT&T LTE smartphone, and is expected to ship in Q4. Source: eBay Thanks: Alex

    Thanks to some ROMs posted in the last few days, we have a smattering of specifications and other information available for several upcoming HTC devices, among them HTC Holiday and HTC Lead. After close examination, we have determined that both devices feature LTE/HSPA+ support, allowing the highest data transfer speed possible on AT&T. As the first HSPA+/LTE devices seen on AT&T, these are likely to be featured in the initial LTE launch, with rumors that HTC Puccini may also feature LTE. For a quick comparison of features, both devices feature 1.2GHz dual-core processors, with the lead ...

    The HTC Holiday, most probably hitting the markets under the name HTC Raider, will be coming to Canada in the last quarter of the year according to recent reports. Previous rumors have put the HTC Raider 4G on Bell's shelves but according to recent information, Rogers will also have the phone in its line-up. The Raider 4G will allegedly hit carriers in the last quarter of the year, probably early November. Sporting a 4.5-inch qHD screen and Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0, the Raider 4G has an LTE-capable radio, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, eight-megapixel camera, ...

    Once thought to be an AT&T exclusive, evidence now suggests that the high-end HTC Holiday will in fact see a global release. Besides being tipped by Bell as one of its upcoming "superphones" (it's an option at the Canadian carrier's online download shop), Holiday listed Europe and Asia along with North America as regions of distribution on its recent Bluetooth certification. While either of these clues alone could be written off as errors, together they make a strong case for an international rollout of what may be the company's next flagship handset. Holiday, expected to run a 1.2GHz ...

    HTC's Holiday first crossed our path all the way back in early May, when we had little more than a picture to go by. It wasn't long before we heard some potential specs for the phone, and learned it may be coming to AT&T as the carrier's first LTE-capable smartphone. More recently, we've seen evidence of the phone in-testing, discovered it will launch as the "Raider" in some markets, and learned of plans to bring the phone to South Korea and Australia in addition to the States. We've been expecting the model to arrive on AT&T's brand-new LTE network sometime before the end of the year, but ...
