HTC Shifts to fast gears with its MAX 4G

HTC has announced the world’s first ever 4G mobile device. HTC has successfully incorporated the features of WiMAX in to the MAX 4G, a device which is said to be a Touch HD look alike. This makes Windows Mobile 6.1 the first mobile OS to be running on the 4G.  What does that mean for us? The data speeds would be pretty fast. Yeah, about 70Mbps. And guess what it is slated for a late November release in Russia on their Yota network…

The new WiMAX technology is said to be introducing something better in the Wi-Fi/Radio/Network standard, which enables two users with WiMAX enabled devices to communicate at these enhanced data rates, provided they are relatively nearer to each other.

The specs include:

  • Processor: Qualcomm ESM7206A 528 MHz
  • Platform: Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • Memory: ROM: 256MB / RAM: 288MB / Flash: 8 GB
  • Dimensions: 113.5mm X 63.1mm X 13.9mm
  • Weight: 151 grams (with battery)
  • Display: 3.8-inch TFT-LCD flat touch-sensitive screen with 480 x 800 WVGA resolution
  • Network: Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE:900/1800/1900 MHz, Yota Mobile WiMAX 2.5-2.7 GHz
  • Device Control: TouchFL 3D
  • GPS: Inbuilt GPS
  • Connections: VoIP
  • Wi-Fi: IEEE 802.11 b/g ,Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, HTC ExtUSB
  • Main camera: High-resolution with autofocus
  • Second: VGA-camera
  • Additional: Motion G-sensor (automatically rotating picture), Proximity sensor (saving energy while talking due to the switching the display off), FM-radio
  • Audio: Ring tone formats: AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, QCP, MP3, WMA, WAV, 40 polyphonic and standard MIDI format 0 and 1 (SMF)/SP MIDI
  • Battery: Li-Pol, 1500 mAh
  • Talk time: GSM: up to 420 minutes, VoIP: up to 230 minutes
  • Standby time: GSM: up to 350 hours, VoIP: up to 50 hours

WiMAX, though not entirely a 4G technology, but is sure a step towards 4G. What picques my interest is that HTC of late is getting tagged with many firsts to its oeuvre. G1, MAX 4G and what next?
