HTC confirms plans to launch LTE devices in 2011 in USA
HTC CEO Peter Chou said in an interview that HTC will launch LTE devices in USA in the second half of 2011. Mr. Chou said that they are focusing on Android and Windows Phone 7 only, so these LTE devices will run either Android or Windows Phone 7. Peter Chou didn’t tell us that who will get these devices in USA, but it looks like AT&T and Verizon are the chosen one. As we know that Verizon recently announced LTE 4G in USA, and they said that they will launch several LTE devices during the CES 2011, and it’s almost around the corner. I am sure that Verizon will launch HTC made LTE device, and the device could be the HTC Merge or the Incredible HD. AT&T is also a major network in USA, and they are planning to launch LTE technology in the middle of 2011, so may be HTC is looking forward to launch LTE phones with AT&T too.
Hopefully we will see some good LTE devices from HTC, and I hope other big manufactures like Apple, LG, Samsung, RIM, and Motorola will launch few devices too. So folks, are you looking forward to HTC LTE devices?
