Telstra have today announced their 4G LTE network is available for everyday consumers if they live within walking distance of Sydney or Melbourne CBD, or one of the lucky selected regional areas (coverage map). Real world speeds are yet to be determined, though I’m sure we’ll hear from tech-savvy users in the coming weeks and months.
The real news for us here is that Telstra have flagged the HTC Holiday as their first 4G smartphone. ‘Holiday’ is the codename for the device that’s currently floating around the internet — in South Korea it’s called the Raider 4G and it’s also been rumoured to be called the HTC Rider when it launches in the US of A. But it’s not the name of the device that gets blood flowing to various parts of our body, it’s the specs, and they’re reminiscent of the HTC Sensation. Hit the break to check ’em out!
