WSJ: Sprint to show off 4G HTC Supersonic at CTIA next week
This article contains unofficial information.
According to the WSJ, Sprint CEO and Television star Dan Hesse is expected to show off the 4G enabled HTC Supersonic at the CTIA show next week in Las Vegas. The pin-dropping network is supposed to have 4G coverage for 120 million people this year and Sprint has said it will launch a 4G handset by the summer. The HTC Supersonic has, well, super specs including a huge 4.3 inch AMOLED display, a zippy 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB RAM/1GB ROM, a 5MP camera with dual LED flash and AF and support for WiMax. The phone will be the center of a presentation that will be made by Hesse on Tuesday as the nation's third largest carrier kicks off the 4G race. Verizon plans on having its 4G LTE network up in 25 to 30 markets by the end of this year, so Sprint has a small window through which it can use its head start to capture the business from those looking to use the faster speeds available on the 4G networks. And the HTC Supersonic appears to have what it takes in terms of the specs and features to become a major obsession and drool-fest for cellphone fanatics.
