HTC Holiday purchased from Craig's List with 4.5 inch qHD display and Android 2.3.4 aboard
Since then, we have heard not a peep about this high-end unit, at least not until now. It seems that an eagle-eyed cell phone fan was rummaging through Craig's List when he found a listing for the HTC Holiday. After purchasing the device, the owner took some pictures and we can see that it certainly resembles the rendering we saw 3 months ago. And the specs on the device are exactly as leaked back in those simpler times last May. Even the build of Android expected on the HTC Holiday, Android 2.3.4, was found on the purchased model. The only difference is that the actual unit does not have the AT&T branding that we saw back on the rendering in May. But the good news for AT&T customers is that the home screen on the prototype shows the "My AT&T" app which probably is a good sign that this beast of a handset will indeed be launched on AT&T. When that will happen, and how much it will cost you is not yet known. With a prototype being offered on Craig's List, it shouldn't be too long before AT&T customers are offered a Vacation.

That sucks that he got it with a messed up screen. Also, is that the charging port on the back cover? If I'm right it means it will be a magnetic one like the one on the HP Veer.

It'll probably be for a dock, Blackberry's usually have something on the back for a dock so that's my guess

that is a really nice looking phone so far. o:
now the real question is will this have HSPA+...or LTE?

I believe that its supposed to be one of the first AT&T's LTE phones. I have the Inspire and this would be a nice upgrade if and when this happens

in the 1st pic notice the "my at&t" app...that should be a dead give away.

we know it's AT&T already, we're speculating whether or not this will run on AT&T's HSPA+ pipelines or their LTE pipelines.

wow pretty big!! It might be LTE since its so huge idk, but it might also be HSPA+, which is slowly improving on AT&T side, i saw a video on the infuse and they got 11mbps on the down side, which is pretty good.

Them dots are def for it to sit in a charging dock.... just like other stuff, wireless mouse,shaver,etc...... Hope it was cheap with that trashed screen i shure wouldnt have wanted it unless it was like 20 bucks max lol... ill stick with my giant infuse for now till i also grab a thrill next week then the wait is on for a awesome HTC windows 7 phone mango or newer version with LTE.

Dang, I was browsing other upcoming phones and T-mobile and Verizon are getting HTC phones with 1.5 GHz dual cores...This phone seems like the perfect candidate to match that as an ATT version... I don't see any phones coming to ATT with anything over 1.2 ghz and a qHD screen, where other carriers are getting the 1.5 AND 720p screens. Poop!
