CES: 4G phones galore, Motorola vs. HTC

LAS VEGAS — HTC, which introduced the first 4G phone last year with Sprint, today announced two more for the fast networks.

The announcement came just after Motorola announced the “Bionic” Droid phone for Verizon’s 4G LTE network and the potent dual-core Atrix for AT&T.

The Atrix is a quasi 4G phone for AT&T’s HSPA+ network, which the carrier is calling 4G even though it’s really a boosted version of 3G. HTC also announced one of these quasi 4G phones for AT&T.

HTC — a Taiwanese company with U.S. operations in the Seattle area — announced the ThunderBolt for Verizon’s new LTE network. The touchscreen, Android-based phone has a 4.3-inch screen, 8 megapixel camer, HD video and DLNA media streaming capabilities.

Skype, including video chat capabilities, are built into the ThunderBolt. Pricing and availability weren’t disclosed.

For Sprint, HTC is making the EVO Shift, an Android 2.2 model with a 3.6-inch touchscreen and slide-out physical keyboard. It’s going on sale Jan. 9 for $150, after a $100 rebate.

For AT&T, HTC is making the Inspire 4G, an aluminum touchscreen model with a 4.3-inch screen and surround sound. HTC is also offering Web services to map the phone’s location if it’s lost, or wipe its data if the phone is stolen. It’s coming out in the first quarter.
