HTC Supersonic with WiMAX

The folks over at engadget.com have been posting information on the rumored HTC Supersonic coming to Sprint in 2010. The exact time frame is unknown at this time, but let's hope it's soon. This device is said to be compatible with the Sprint/Clear 4G services.

As a heavy VoIP user, I'm looking for a phone that allow me to dump my expensive "Everything" plan with Sprint, and possibly go to just a low cell minute plan. Between the WiMAX and Wi-Fi capabilities, making pure VoIP calls from just about anywhere in the Austin area should be breeze. Here's some of the specs for this phone found over at engadget:

  • Codename is "Supersonic" -- a name we've heard at least once before.
  • Feels a lot like you'd expect an Android-powered HD2 to feel thanks to a 4.3-inch non-AMOLED display and a svelte shell. (For reference, the HD2 is 11mm thick, but we don't have exact dimensions here.)
  • It's got a kickstand on the back. This wouldn't be a first for HTC; the Imagio on Verizon has one, for example.
  • Runs Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense UI.
  • Our tipster saw it in white; production devices could be available in different colors, of course, but white seems like it'd be an intriguing choice for a phone of the HD2's size and shape.
  • The phone's software stack is buggy enough right now to suggest that we're not looking at a release any time soon, but we don't have details on the projected launch window.
  • It's fast -- Snapdragon fast, it seems, though our tipster can't confirm the processor under the hood.
