HTC Velocity to be Germany’s First LTE Phone, Available on Vodafone

Thanks to Vodafone, Germany will have their first LTE phone with the HTC Velocity in a few short weeks.  In the US, we know this HTC phone as the Vivid, while in South Korea it’s called the Raider.  In our review of the Vivid, we found it to be a solid device, although the small 1620mAh battery meant that you’ll be charging it more often than you’d like.  Here’s a refresher on the specs:

  • 4.5-inch qHD Super LCD display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 8MP rear camera with 1080p recording and a 1.3MP front camera
  • 16GB internal memory, expandable memory to an additional 32GB with microSD card
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense UI

While Vodafone declined to name a release date or price, they were certain the HTC Velocity would be in stores shortly.  The official information will most likely be announced at a press conference next week.

    The EUSSR, including Germany, already have the Galaxy Note with LTE for some months now.

    I might sound stupid here, but does Europe, or better yet, Germany, have LTE coverage? Wasn’t aware of that.

      Only thing i can say is that The Netherlands doesn’t have LTE, but we do have an LTE capable Phone/Tablet, the Galaxy Note. Germany has the galaxy Note as well, so the HTC Velocity is not the first.
