The back of the T8290 is showing a Yota logo, which is a Russia WiMaX network provider. Is HTC bringing this to US instead of Touch HD? Check out more photos here!

    Lets hope that Sprint picks this one up for US distribution in the near future. Although I do not have high hopes that will happen.

    Why not? Aside from this there is only one other manufacturer of handheld form factor WiMax devices, and those are in the 2.3Ghz band, not the 2.5 that both Yota and Sprint use.

    Right now, if Sprint wants WiMax to take off, they have to have handsets and that means HTC. Nobody else is even close to ready.

    Please, let HTC send this out with 850/1900 MHz HSDPA and for use with XOHM. I’d rather use AT&T and XOHM than fucked-up Sprint and XOHM.

    i dontcare about wimax, dont have it in denmark, but i’ll but this phone for the design alone, well along all the cool things the touchHD has (TV out, high resolution etc. ) but mainly for the design. cant wait till i can import this sucker from somewhere.

    They should definitely bring the HTC Quartz to the U.S. It would be compatible with Sprint’s Xohm network, they should make it a CDMA and Wimax enabled device though. Sprint has the best network in my opinion. Verizon and AT&T suck when it come to wireless!!!
