HTC prepping a 4G LTE Windows Phone and a flagship Android 4.0 ICS device for AT&T?
Right now, the HTC Titan is undoubtedly one of the few high-spec’d Windows Phones on the market right now, but according to BGR’s trusted source, the carrier is apparently going to get an even better device early next year. Currently, there’s no name for this alleged device, but it’s being prepped as HTC’s first 4G LTE Windows Phone for AT&T. Specifically, it’ll have similarities to the already established HTC Titan, like a monstrous 4.7” display, but it’ll differentiate itself substantially with its 4G LTE connectivity. As it stands, it’s believed to launch on February 5th of next year – so a potential announcement at CES in January is possible.
Meanwhile, if you’re more interested in Android powered smartphones, then the HTC Elite will more than likely appease your appetite, since it’s billed as HTC’s flagship device for the first half of 2012 – and bound for AT&T’s lineup as well! Specs are rather light with this one, but it’ll apparently going to be an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device with Beats Audio support. Currently, it’s regarded as the HTC Elite, but it may also be launched as the “HTC Congressional.” As for its potential arrival date, it’s currently believed to launch either in the first or second week of April.
So there you have it folks, if you’re an AT&T customer, you have something to look forward to the new year. And of course, knowing that CES is literally right around the corner, we’re certain that we’ll be hearing plenty of good news regarding these two AT&T bound devices.

The Radar and the Wildfire were the two phones that they at least got the name right.
This will be interesting indeed...

So does that mean that HTC will update its other dual-core devices to ICS by April? Still a long way off, but it'll be well worth the wait!

Pissed cuz Tmo have no top end WP to offer. Don't wanna be stuck with my HD7 forever despite its one of the best phone I ever had and will stay with me as a relic.

Uh, there could still be a WP7 device for T-Mobile announced at CES. Nowhere does it say that T-Mobile won't launch another WP7 phone.

There is a reason for being the forth largest carrier in the US. It means Tmo has failed in many fronts, besides for pricing. They've advertised the s**t regarding their pricing and even included a sexy girl. Yet Tmo just can't and won't make headway. This leads me to believe there is s flaw with management and a flaw with their product offers that have turned many off. Now you guys tell me Tmo "may" have more to offer coming ces 2012, I'll believe it when I see it. Not gonna hold my breath. If there is nothing, maybe it will be time to move on.

HTC is notoriously SLOW at updating their devices somewhat due to the Sense layered on top of Android. I would not expect to see any updates until AFTER the first HTC ICS device is on the market.

Actually HTC is one of the better manufacturers as far as updating goes. LG is the absolute worst with Samsung just a little ahead. The original Galaxy S phones STILL don't have 2.3 on them and were promised a year ago it would happen.

THIS IS SWEET FINALLY ICS to AT&T. Can't wait to see what it looks like and with BASS BEATS! May upgrade to this one

If HTC could update their friggin battery performance they would be unstoppable. That's the one area that is super lacking for their phones. I don't get why they don't realize that their Sense bs is draining the hell out of the phones.
