WiMAX may be kaput here in the States, but major manufacturers continue to churn out WiMAX devices abroad. Case in point: an HTC WiMAX smartphone that casually appeared on HTC’s website, but was quickly pulled shortly after. According to reports, the WiMAX-based device called the J ISW13HT– will be featured on mobile carrier KDDI’s WiMAX network. Details of the device includes features such as a 4.3-inch qHD screen, Snapdragon S4 chip, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of memory, a microSD slot and Ice Cream Sandwich with a topping of Sense 4.0. Yummy.
No word on the official release date of this device, but we suspect it will be out very soon.
