HTC Raider 4G LTE heading up north to Bell and Rogers
The first LTE enabled handset expected to be available for AT&T will supposedly be the HTC Holiday. But when not getting ready to offer fast data speeds to the few AT&T customers who have access to the carrier's LTE pipeline, the phone will go by the name of the HTC Raider 4G LTE up in Canada for Bell. Designated for the Canadian mobile operator's Superphone category, the device will cost you $169.95 with the customary signed three-year contract up north. Without a contract, the price tag is a hefty $499.95. No launch date has been mentioned.

Bell's LTE network supports the phone and when out of coverage area, the HTC Raider 4G LTE will drop back to the HSPA+ 42Mbps network. The device itself carries a 4.5 inch qHD display and is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM aboard. The phone has two cameras with an 8MP one on back (capturing video at 1080p) and a 1.3MP shooter up front. Android 2.3 is aboard with HTC Sense running on top. Besides Bell, the HTC Raider 4G LTE will also be launched by Rogers in Canada for a price of $149.99 with a signed 3-year pact.

Sounds like we will soon be hearing about a beast making its way through the frozen north. Unlike the abominable snowman, this one will be spotted being held up to human ears.

Wow, $170 for a 3 year contract? I think 2 years is more than long enough for me! Plus that's a lot of money for 3 years...

God I wish HTC and AT&T would stop teasing me and release this already, it seems like it passed through the FCC ages ago!

This bulls**t has to stop where the U.S. is the last to get phones. We're first in almost everything else. Canada gets it before us? C'mon with this s**t.
