T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G caught like a deer in headlights
As we reported, the HTC Amaze 4G, rumored to be rolling out of T-Mobile on October 26th, has the makings of a "flagship device" with its 1.5GHz dual-core processor providing the speed. And what good is speed without a good display? To that end, users of  the HTC Amaze 4G surely will have no problems with the 4.5 inch qHD display. The rest of the phone's Amaze-ing specs, as obtained by CellPhoneSignal, basically repeat what we heard earlier such as the 1GB of RAM on board and the 8MP camera on back. A 2MP camera graces the front of the phone while Sense 3.5 runs on top of Gingerbread. The device will offer 4G connectivity through T-Mobile's HSPA+ pipeline with data speed as high as 42Mbps.

But the device formerly known as Prince the HTC Ruby wasn't out on this leisurely Sunday afternoon to brag about numbers. While previous pictures of the device were a bit on the blurry side (as many first photos of a new device are), this time the handset was captured with promotional quality snapshots. According to CellPhoneSignal, the model is being considered as the replacement for the myTouch 4G and while similar in looks, there seems to be nothing in the way of branding on the phone that would indicate that it is part of that series.

something about the top of the screen, the notification bar, and the way it looks in the blurry pic make it look altered...but i could be wrong. who knows.

well it doesn't have mySense but it does share some hardware similarities with the myTouch 4G. if they have decided to move away from mySense then maybe this will be a myTouch X? that seems to be what manufacturers name that exceptionally large phone in a series, the Droid X/Milestone X and the G2x for example.

Verizon, are you guys seeing this? I love my Droid, but it would be nice to have something like this to come to VZW.

Yeah, the Vigor is close. But I really want that 4.5" screen.

Where's SPRINT's version? ALL THREE OTHERS, ATT, VERIZON, ATT, have phones within the next month that blow the galaxy s2 out of the water, EXCEPT SPRINT??

they came out with all of their super phones too early. that's what all the Sprint fan boys get for talking s**t.
