4.5-inch HTC Raider arrives in South Korea, AT&T awaiting it as the HTC Holiday
The HTC Holiday is expected to be the first handset to ride AT&T’s 4G LTE waves once it arrives, but its South Korean sibling has already landed under the HTC Raider moniker. The two devices are expected to be nearly identical with the main difference being in the frequency support.

There are two things that strikes you the most with the HTC Raider - first is its gigantic 4.5-inch IPS display and the other its relatively elegant design, which makes it stand apart when compared with most of Verizon’s LTE handsets. The HTC Raider measures .44” (11.27cm) at its thickest, while its weight stands at 5.78 ounces (163.8g).

The focus - of course - is on LTE. Theoretical capabilities of the Raider include 100Mbps downloads and uploads at 50Mbps. Under the hood, a powerful 1.5GHz dual-core processor makes Gingerbread tick on the huge screen. On the back, there’s an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash capable of recording 1080p full HD videos, while up front a 1.3-megapixel snapper is a welcome addition for video conferencing. Check out the link below for all the technical details.

Wow this phone is BEAST. The Koreans sure know how to do their 4G well! Engadget also reported HSPA downloads at 21Mbps down and 5.76Mbps up. My question is, what are "real world" download and upload 4G speeds for these theoretical maximums in S. Korea?

In sweden the theoretical 4G speed is about 80 mpbs, and real life speed is about 30-45 mbps

Not real 4G speeds, it is HSPA+. Also, it was definitely not the first. Did you crawl out from your rock a few days ago? The First HSPA+ device I believe was the HTC Inspire 4G.

What an outstanding choice to kick off interest in AT&T's fledging LTE. They have a ways to go to see even the dust trail left by Verizon, but this beast will get the motor running.

If Holiday and Rider is different and if that affect the rooting then I will not buy rider.. you know that? Now in korea Evo4g+(evo3d but no 3d and put wibro) users cannot root cannot use custom rom... It is useless to buy htc..

This phone is incredible, although I think HTC should have given it beats auto and NFC (not to mention sense 3.5)

My friend just bought the HTC Raider from some wholesaler in china. Paid 283 for it. It's realllyyy nice.. and fast as ever. I'm thinking about just getting The Raider instead of holding out on AT&T.
