HTC Inspire 4G Announced for AT&T, Runs Android

HTC-Inspire-front

The HTC Inspire 4G has been announced at AT&T’s CES event today, running Android with the usual Sense customizations, though HTC’s CEO remained sketchy about hard specs. The Inspire 4G includes a new feature called Fastboot which turns the phone on in a mere second or two. It also brings for the first time to North America connectivity to the HTC Sense web service so you can remotely ring, lock, find or wipe your phone. Chou hinted at a unibody design, a camera capable of HD video, and that it’ll be launching “very soon” on AT&T. One can only assume the “4G” in the name is referring to HSPA+, since T-Mobile seems perfectly happy using the term there too, but it was never explicitly mentioned.

We’ll update here as soon as we hear more about hard specs and get some good pictures.

Update: Got a few more details from AT&T. The HTC Inspire 4G has a 4.3-inch Super LCD display, the camera clocks in at 8 megapixels, and the processor at 1 GHz. Launch is slated for first quarter. Will see if I can dig up some good pictures.

Update 2: Here you go.

    Why isn’t anyone stating that this phone is the Desire HD renamed for AT&T? Has the general media been instructed not to mention it?
