The HTC Holiday, expected to be AT&T's first LTE-enabled handset

The HTC Holiday is expected to be the first LTE enabled handset for AT&T. And if that isn't memorable enough, consider the specs. The unit is equipped with a 4.5 inch qHD display while Android 2.3.4 is pre-installed with Sense 3.0 on top. That means Google Talk video chat is supported. A 1.2GHz dual-core processor is under the hood and 1GB of RAM is aboard. On back is an 8MP camera while a 1.3MP shooter is on the front. 

Speaking of holidays, according to a source for Engadget, there is a good chance that this will be called the HTC Waikiki at launch. While no launch date or pricing info has been released, we recently reported that someone was able to buy what is almost surely a test version of the phone from Craig's List. The high-end device certainly seems like a worthy choice to blaze the trail for the carrier's future LTE handsets.

When this device (along with the smaller, lesser spec but still dual core HTC Lead) was first leaked, a lot of AT&T people became interested. It looks nice, is a solid list of specifications on paper, and now may be LTE?? Wow. Gonna be some real excitement for this heavyweight contender.

LTE.... kind of a deal breaker for me. if the battery life is sub par like with vzw, i may end up having to pass. not to mention iowa is never a top priority for network upgrades

I have been waiting for this phone ever since it was first leaked. AT&T needs to get on the ball and release this thing soon

This would be a great alternative to the Nexus Prime is AT&T doesn't get it. So this would be my fall back phone is the nexus deal doesnt happen.
