HTC Max 4G reviewed again, this time in English

Last month we showed you a great little video review of the super sexy HTC Max 4G – you know, HTC’s incredibly sexy WiMax-enabled handset that we’ll probably never see stateside. Seeing it on video was great and all, but unless you speak Russian you didn’t understand a word that was said. No worries, an English-speaking Malaysian blogger has gotten his mitts on this touchscreen gem and laid out a pretty thorough review. There’s no video this time around, but there are plenty of screen shots to feast your eyes on. Sure it’s a bit bulky but lack of a physical keyboard aside, the Max 4G is definitely one of the hottest phones HTC has ever built. Who cares what they say about coveting, we want our neighbor’s phone and we want it now.

HTC Max 4G caught on video

HTC Max 4G caught on video

How’s this for some weekend watching? It looks like a couple of excited Russian mobile enthusiasts managed to get their hands on HTC’s recently-announced WiMAX gobbling Max 4G. You know, the ridiculously hot handset that we won’t be getting our mitts on here in the US. The reviewer gives it a pretty thorough run-through in the video above and despite not being able to understand a word of what’s being said, we certainly came away wanting one. Or three. The only real strike against this handset, provided you can cope with Windows Mobile, is the bogging. The UI definitely looked pretty boggy at several points during the video but it’s hard to tell if the bogging is normal or if it has to do with the fact that they’re streaming NINE videos at the same time in the background while doing the review. Damn. Towards the end of the video the demonstrator also lines the Max 4G up next to the iPhone 3G to give youa  good idea of the size and look. Seriously HTC, we want.

[Thanks, Tom!]

HTC announces first GSM/WiMax integrated phone: MAX 4G

If you’re reading this, we hope you’re sitting down because this news is gonna blow you away. HTC recently announced its plans to launch the HTC MAX 4G, the world’s first GSM / WiMax integrated handset! Judging from the looks of that picture along with others floating around the net, it looks like it’s going to be a hell of a gorgeous phone. Of course, HTC rarely disappoints but this is definitely going to be high up on the “want list” for us. The only problem? Well, here it is straight from HTC PR:

While the HTC MAX 4G is being announced with Russia’s Scartel on their ‘Yota’ brand WiMAX network, and is not slated for introduction in the US market, the HTC MAX 4G represents the commitment to cutting edge innovation that HTC is bringing to consumers around the world.

Not slated for introduction in the States? Come on, HTC! First the Touch HD and now this? We’re sure that for those of you desperate enough (and who can blame you?), you’ll find a way to snag one unlocked and use it here where WiMax is available. So, just to continue with the tease, here are some specs for the new device:
