The ultimate member of AT&T’s impressive LTE smartphone 2011 lineup is in the beginning line, ready to impress. The HTC Vivid is joining the organization of the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and LG Nitro HD inside a bid to defend the reputation from the Taiwanese company.
Hardware wise, the HTC Vivid is really a familiar sight. The smartphone is essentially come up with from the parts’ bin of the actual HTC Sensation 4G and HTC EVO three dimensional, save for its 4. 5“ display and beefed up built-in memory -- it packs a well familiar dual-core PROCESSOR, clocked at 1. 2GHz and the Snapdragon S3 chipset.
We do suspect that HTC has intentionally omitted features for example an HD screen and a beefed up CPU to be able to maintain the flagship status of the actual Beats Audio sporting, HTC Rezound with regard to Verizon Wireless. Thankfully, the Vivid is priced accordingly too.

As you are able to notice above, the spec sheet of the HTC Vivid is really a familiar sight. HTC have grown the screen to put it good rest of the LTE offerings through AT&T.
We are not sure nevertheless, how the feeling of familiarity will bode for that smartphone – it simply does not feel like a fresh product. It is the end of 2011 now – a great eight months since HTC took the wraps from the similarly equipped Sensation 4G.
