The powerful HTC Raider, a holiday offering once known as the Holiday, has been made official for Canada via a press release issued jointly by HTC, Bell, and Rogers. The LTE-capable device is headed to both networks. While Bell only notes the device as “coming soon,” Rogers has stated that the Raider should be arriving in stores tomorrow at a price of $149.99 on a three-year plan. Rumors put the device at $169.99 on a three-year contract with Bell, though pricing on the carrier was not confirmed.
The Raider features a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, and 8MP camera capable of 1080p video capture. The handset has all the specs necessary for an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich at some point in the future.
