HTC Inspire 4G is now official after a number of leaks on different web-pages and tech blogs. This is a 4G phone of course, but there is a question, why it is from AT&T? They still do not have any such network which we can call 4G. May be because they are just going to label their HSPA+ network with little upgrading.
This big 4.3-inch-display phone was not focused too much in the last few days as CES 2011 came with a rain of tablet PCs and iPad killers. But the leaks were coming on pages like flood for about a month before the official advertisement from f the Rolling Stone magazine.
This mobile is powered by Android 2.2 Froyo operating system which will be delivering a solid Android experience with the Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8255 processor that maxes at 1GHz enabling you to multitask with freedom. Other key features of this phone include an 8 megapixel camera, 4G connectivity and Dolby Mobile with SRS sound enhancement. But that’s not the end of the list. There are other general smartphone features like Flash support with Adobe Flash Player, mobile hotspot, heavy SNS integration and many more.
The 8 megapixel camera is equipped with dual LED flash, autofocus and is able to record HD videos at 720p. This phone also comes with dual mics to give you a better call clarity through noise cancellation. The Android 2.2 Froyo is enhanced with HTC Sense 2.0 UI which will give you a better connectivity, a social networking experience and other services from HTCsense.com. To enable the Mobile hotspot you will need to have the Tethering plan which will let you share your connection with up to five devices.
The DLNA connectivity of HTC Inspire 4G will let you stream your videos, music or pictures to big screen TVs or any other DLNA capable device. The device will have 4 GB internal memory which can be extended with a 32GB microSD memory card. The battery life is not so good compared to competitor phones’ battery life. The Li-ion 1230 mAh battery will give you 6 hours of talk time and about 370 hours of standby time.
In this device HTC has taken HTC Sense to a completely new level and now the services with HTCsense.com really make sense. The first thing they will provide is the security for this piece of device. From HTCsense.com you will be able to control your phone in many ways like remote wiping, locking your device or even managing your contacts and texts. If you lose it, you can make it ring louder from the website even in silent mode and if it’s stolen you can track your phone via GPS. The unified inbox will let you manage all your messages whatever the medium of the message might be. Among sensors it has G-sensor, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor along with a digital compass.
There is no release date available for HTC Inspire 4G, but you can submit your email address to AT&T site and get an email alert as soon as the phone becomes available.
