HTC Raider (Holiday) Stops by FCC en Route to AT&T

The HTC Raider has been available in Canada for a few weeks now, but a US release still escapes the device. The handset once known under the Holiday name has long been rumored to make a stop at AT&T, but any word of an announcement has been missing as the holiday season kicks into high gear. There is a chance we could still see the Raider in the States by the end of the year, as the phone has made the journey to the halls of the FCC showing its AT&T-ready 850 and 1900 GSM bands.

The Raider features a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, and an 8MP camera. Also on board are 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a 1.3MP front-facing camera.

    Is this not my HTC Vivid with at&t by another name?  I’m confused.

    • jeremyseattle

      Yeah I too thought the Vivid was AT&T’s version of the Holiday.

  • Andrew Ogden

    Uhm this was already released on AT&T as the HTC VIVID about a month ago… I have one in my hand.

    • zorxd

      The Raider has LTE too.

      • Transporterr

  • Hustlin

    Isn’t this the HTC Vivid that is already out?

  • TylerB2010

    How is this any different than the vivid? Am I missing something?

  • Mfreywald

    Isn’t that a picture of the vivid?

  • zorxd

    hum nevermind so does the Vivid apparently

  • PhilMcGraw

    Maybe this is that other HTC handset that was rumored to launch around the time we found out about the HTC Holiday.  I forget the name of it, but it was a couple of months ago.

  • toomuchgame441

    Ok I see no difference between this and the Vivid..

  • Jason Young

    This is obviously a glitch in the matrix. Ignore it. It will be patched shortly.

    Samsung: this is what you call a smartphone? I made better

    HTC: I don’t make phones for people to hear creaks

    Samsung: well I don’t make phones that weigh as much as a brick

    HTC: say that to my face you plastic piece of shit

    Samsung: you take that back you battery defficient son of a bitch

    HTC: yea, you don’t want none of this here. I see your screen is already bleeding

    Samsung: no it’s just that your fucked up screen is too pixelated to see

    HTC: what?

    Samsung: what you can’t hear? Do I have to turn up the volume?

    HTC: yea because your speakers suck

    • CynicalBrony

      You still do those?!

      • jonathanbond110111

        Yea. You commented on one of them yesterday on Engadget. Remember?

    A search for the model number indicated in this document (https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicationAttachment.html?id=1590833) identifies it as the HTC Raider 4G…

    …which Rogers Wireless currently carries.

  • Daniel

    Let’s clarify again that this is the HTC Vivid….we got the point lol.

  • Gus70

    The HTC Vivid is the PH39100.  What just hit the FCC is PH39130.  So there must be some differentiation however minor that it may be.  Perhaps it going to some other carrier…but it definitely isn’t gong to AT&T since AT&T already has their version of this phone.

  • Tim242

    Just as everybody else has pointed out…the Vivid is att’s Holiday, and already released.
