AT&T’s HTC Holiday could be Verizon’s Droid Bionic beater

Earlier on this week we published an article suggesting that the highly anticipated Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon may be in trouble if AT&T’s first 4G LTE handset turns out to be more superior and faster via 4G LTE data speeds.

Well, we may be closer to that answer now, as a new upcoming AT&T handset has leaked and it looks to be something huge. It’s called the HTC Holiday and leaked specs suggest that this is going to be one of their flagship handsets for the second half of 2011.

For starters, it comes with a mammoth 4.5-inch qHD display screen, a 1.2Ghz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera and the latest version of Android Gingerbread, which is 2.3.4. We’re guessing that this will also come with the latest HTC Sense 3.0 UI update as well, making this a very strong player in the smartphone market.

Unfortunately, there are no details on whether or not this handset will feature 4G LTE data speeds on AT&T yet. If it does though, you can expect this to go head to head with the Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon. You can view a leaked picture of the device over at Pocketnow here – do you like the look of it? Notice the AT&T branding at the top, rather than HTC branding – we would prefer HTC at the top any day though.

Hopefully AT&T make this handset official soon, and confirm that it will have 4G LTE support. That way customers can really decide which 4G handset they want to upgrade to. Let us know your thoughts on this, do you think it is more desirable than the Droid Bionic or not?

Forget Droid Bionic beater, this is an iPhone 4S beater. I want one.

Goodbye iPhone 4. I’m making the switch as soon as this comes out. I have been eye-balling the Samsung Infuse up until now, but this clearly takes the cake. For the past year, I have thought that the HTC Evo 4G was the best smart phone on the market, just with the wrong carrier (Sprint). I wondered why AT&T would not entertain other high quality smart phones while choosing only to focus on the iPhone. I am SO glad to see AT&T spreading their wings by offering other handsets like the Atrix, the Infuse, and Inspire. But I truly believe… Read more »

It’s interesting how eager people are to say that the “bionic has met it’s match”. It leads me to believe that the lack of news on the bionic has caused writers to look for other ways to work it into articles. Anyway, AT&T currently has no LTE network, while Verizon is pretty well established in a lot of major cities. Oh and AT&T has yet to release an LTE phone…so what is the purpose of this article again?

Does anyone really want to carry around something that borders on tablet size as a phone?

I’m still on board to wait for the Bionic. Wouldn’t resign with ATT if they gave me a ‘Holiday’ for free.
