HTC prototype of an LTE phone for AT&T breaks cover
The phone resembled the HTC Inspire 4G, which in its turn is an AT&T rehash of the HTC Desire HD, meaning that the new Sense UI will be slapped on HTC's LTE phone as well. That resemblance means a 4.3" screen, but the person that handled it, says it seems a bit thicker than the 3G-only slabs.
What's more interesting, though, is that it was actually hooked up to an LTE stream, and tethered to a laptop, beaming 50Mbits, close to the theoretical 60Mbits maximum of this generation standard. The streaming was taking place in an enclosed and controlled environment, of course - on an overcrowded commercial network you'd get a tenth of that at times, but the sheer fact that an HTC LTE phone is in a prototype stage for AT&T, warms our hearts.

Looks like it's right on time for better Android and Win7 devices than in the past. I never personally cared for the iPhone. and have been dieing a little inside whenever I saw a good looking phone with AT&T 3G bands only to see it go to Rogers and Telus and Bell Canada.
With iPhone exclusivity over we will have to do as the others did and offer the very best of the rest to keep/gain market share.
