Germany is about to be treated to a taste of 4G LTE courtesy of Vodafone and HTC. The carrier has confirmed plans to carry the HTC Velocity, the phone known as the HTC Vivid in the US and HTC Raider in other parts of the world. The Velocity features a 4.5-inch qHD capacitive display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. The Gingerbread handset also sports 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera with 1.3MP front-facing camera, and plenty of network support. Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE is onboard as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA on the 900/2100MHz bands. Even better, the handset comes with dualband LTE support at 800/2600 MHz. Sure, the Velocity comes from a crop of LTE devices that HTC has dismissed for poor design and battery life, but it still offers an impressive list of features on top of its blazing fast network speeds.
