[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.

    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, ...

    From the first time we heard about the HTC Holiday for AT&T and its rumored specs, it was clear we were looking at one darn capable smartphone. Between a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a big 4.5-inch qHD display, it looked like it would have the hardware to easily stand on its own. Then came the icing on the cake: that the Holiday would be destined for operation on AT&T's fledgling LTE network. Some new pics of the phone show it in some of the clearest imagery yet, and we get an idea of just what speeds will be possible on AT&T LTE. Thankfully, this Holiday is in much better condition then ...

    The 4.5-inch, dual-core handset codenamed HTC Holiday will come to market as the HTC Raider, according to the device's user agent profile. It's important to note, however, that this will probably be the branding for the global version of the phone; it's not clear whether or not AT&T will adopt the same monniker for its LTE launch handset. Engadget recently reported that AT&T may dub this qHD flagship HTC Waikiki, but that seems unlikely; Waikiki is more likely the internal AT&T codename for the phone. Besides AT&T, Raider/Holiday is also expected to hit Bell in Canada, as well as ...

    The handset pictured above goes by the codename HTC Holiday, and it's clearly an AT&T-bound Android phone. Unfortunately, that's all we know for certain about the unannounced Holiday -- the design reminds us somewhat of a modernized Aria (Aria 2? Aria S?), but it could just as easily be a higher-end model of the Inspire 4G variety. It's difficult to make out, but there does seem to be a front-facing cam on the upper right side, so it's pretty likely that we're looking at 4G / HSPA+ wireless speeds here; who knows, this could even be an LTE launch device for AT&T. A summer release for such ...

    Only just released, the Samsung Infuse 4G appears poised to see a very serious competitor from the device codenamed HTC Holiday. Confirmed through a leaked ROM to be another giant 4.5-inch handset for AT&T, Holiday aims to best Infuse in both the processor and resolution departments, offering up a 1.2GHz dual-core MSM8660 chipset from Qualcomm as well as a qHD (540x960) display. Coupled with 1GB of RAM, dual eight-megapixel and 1.3-megapixel cameras (rear and front-facing, respectively), and running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, Holiday promises to be a beast of a device well-positioned to ...

    We first heard of the HTC Holiday when we first saw the renders of the phone initially believed to be an AT&T exclusive. Later on the Holiday was tipped for a global release and then a prototype popped-up on Craigslist. The image above appears to be the first in-the-wild picture of the HTC Holiday. Just as we heard back in May, the Holiday will indeed sport a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.5-inch qHD display, eight-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, 1.3 megapixel front-facer, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread on-board, with HTC Sense 3.0 on top of it. ...

    HTC has been very busy at the trademark office. Just recently they've applied for trademarks on the following names, many of which could very well be future devices: HTC Radiant HTC Equalize HTC Port HTC Rift HTC Cobalt HTC Vivid HTC Pro We're thinking that the Radiant and Vivid might be devices with improved screens, perhaps with AMOLED-beating technology, while the Cobalt, Rift, and Equalize could be midrange devices. Finally, the HTC Pro could be HTC's next-generation professional device, perhaps acting as an evolution to the Desire Z. We'll have to see if we can put these puzzle pieces ...

    In this video, we are taking a close look at the hardware on the one of the newest 4G LTE devices from ATT: the HTC Vivid. Sadly, the device is simply not inspiring. While the specs are withing the realms of other devices on the market today, there are plenty of more interesting phones on the market for which one can spend $199 for. The lack of nationwide LTE from ATT also serves to dampen what could otherwise be a high point in the device configuration. Dimensions 5.07 x 2.64 x 0.44" 6.24 oz Battery 1620 mAh Display 4.5" S-LCD 540 x 960 pixels (qHD) 262k colors Gorilla Glass Processor ...

    AT&T has recently announced two new phones built to take advantage of its 4G/LTE network: the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the HTC Vivid. Both devices are running Android 2.3 Gingerbread but AT&T has revealed its update plans for the phones. While the confirmation is very vague, the Skyrocket and the Vivid will indeed get their Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich treats sometime early next year. Of course, the exact roll-out timeframe depends a lot on how Samsung and HTC manage to get the refresh ready. After a carrier test (if everything goes well and the update doesn't have issues to be ...

    For smartphone manufacturers, picking the right name for your new handset is a big deal. You want it to be unique, memorable, and ideally carry some sort of emotional weight; whether Bliss or Bionic, these names are the product of a lot of thought. Sometimes, though, the manufacturer settles on a name that another company's already adopted as its own. We've seen this happen with the HTC ChaCha, and more recently with RIM's BBX. When the two parties can't reach an understanding, the lawyers come in. The latest smartphone to face such a challenge is the HTC Vivid, with Vivid Entertainment ...

    After officially announcing the two phones at the end of last month -- and later on confirming the Ice Cream Sandwich update for "early 2012" -- AT&T has made the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the HTC Vivid available for purchase online. As a reminder, the Skyrocket tops the AT&T Galaxy S II in terms of screen size and processing power by featuring a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen and an upgraded 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The camera is one of eight megapixels and the front facer is of two-megapixels up-front, while there's 16GB of flash storage on-board. The phone goes for $249.99 ...

    In this video, we are taking a close look at the software on the one of the newest 4G LTE devices from AT&T, the HTC Vivid. Even with the usual HTC Sense 3.0 overlaid on Gingerbread Android, the HTC Vivid is still an admirable performer. If not for it's bulky exterior and hardware design, one would be very pleased with the results. Even the data speeds without the 4G LTE service (not available in my primary service area) are outstanding, especially compared to my daily driver from Sprint. There is the typical bloatware installed on the device, some of which can be removed, while others ...

    AT&T's LTE network is still in its infancy, but for those of you lucky enough to live in one of the markets where the service is offered, you'll soon have a chance to start operating a smartphone on the high-speed network; starting November 6, AT&T has announced it will begin sales of the LTE-capable Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and HTC Vivid. Considering AT&T LTE service is only available in half-a-dozen Midwest cities currently (though that number will jump to nine by the time these phones are released, including an East Coast debut in the Baltimore-Washington area), it's especially ...
