HTC Holiday headed to AT&T with 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.5-inch display

The HTC Holiday may soon join the Infuse 4G as AT&T’s second smartphone with a 4.5-inch display. According to information obtained by 911Sniper, the Holiday will offer a spec sheet that could put the Samsung GALAXY S II to shame. The Holiday will supposedly pack a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 processor, the large aforementioned 4.5-inch screen with a 960 x 540 qHD resolution, 1GB of RAM, Android 2.3.4, and an 8-megapixel camera. We’re also hoping HTC includes its latest Sense user interface, which we most recently saw on the HTC Sensation. Unfortunately there isn’t any information about a possible launch date just yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see this sport a “4G” tag on it, also. More →

HTC Lead for AT&T image and spec sheet leaked

Pocketnow has gotten its hands on an image of the HTC Lead from AT&T, and 911 Sniper has leaked a few of the specs. Neither AT&T nor HTC have announced the Lead yet, but it’s rumored to sport a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 processor — which we first saw in the T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G — 768MB of RAM, a 4.3-inch WVGA display, and a 5-megapixel camera. It’s unclear when the Lead will launch, but the device is rumored to run Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread), which could make it the first Gingerbread device on AT&T. There’s no word of HSPA+ support, but we’d be stunned if this device launched without a 4G label glued to the end of its name. More →

HTC Puccini to bring 10-inch form factor, LTE to AT&T?

Chinese blog 911Sniper has uncovered evidence of a new, HTC tablet with a 10-inch form factor. Being called the HTC Puccini, the Android 3.0.1 slate boasts a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 processor, 1280 x 800 pixel WXGA resolution, HTC’s Sense experience, and an AT&T compatible LTE radio. The Puccini, should it come to market, would be a larger version of the company’s Flyer offering — complete with Scribe pen support. HTCSniper has a good track record when it comes to unearthing HTC hardware through ROM leaks, so we wouldn’t be too surprised to see this one get official in the near future.  More →

Qualcomm begins shipping dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processors

qualcomm-logo

Mobile aficionados with a serious need for processing speed should be all smiles this morning, as Qualcomm has announced that it is now shipping its third-generation Snapdragon processors to its hardware clients. Known as the MSM8360 and the MSM8660, both dual-core chipsets top out at 1.2GHz and provide support for 2D/3D hardware acceleration, OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1 acceleration, 1080p video encoding and decoding, integrated GPS, and 24-bit WXGA displays. Where they’re different is that the MSM8360 supports HSPA+ while the MSM8660 plays nice with HSPA+/EV-DO Rev. B. Qualcomm won’t disclose who has already taken ownership of the chipsets, but we imagine it won’t be long before the usual suspects start rolling out new handsets featuring these two lovely ladies.
