HTC unwraps 'world's first' WiMax, Wi-Fi phone in Russia

Max 4G on Yota debuts

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

HTC has taken the wraps off its rumoured "4G" phone - the world's first handset to integrate WiMax, Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity.

The HTC Max 4G packs in 8021.11b/g, tri-band GSM/GPRS/Edge and mobile WiMax in the 2.5-2.7GHz band. Bluetooth 2.0+EDR completes the handset's wireless capabilities, and it has GPS and on board too. It supports VoIP calls.

HTC's Max 4G: from Russia with love

The Max sports a 3.8in, 480 x 800 touch-sensitive display; Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro with HTC's TouchFlo 3D user interface on top; an accelerometer to auto-rotate the display when the phone's turned; and a proximity sensor to turn off the display when you hold the handset up to your ear.

There's a 0.3-megapixel front-facing video-call camera, and a five-megapixel camera with autofocus" on the back. There's 8GB of Flash storage on board but no memory expansion so far as we can see.

The 151g, 114 x 63 x 14mm phone has a GSM talktime of 420 minutes, HTC claimed, falling to 230 minutes if you switch to VoIP. GSM and WiMax stand-by battery life times are 350 hours and 50 hours, respectively.

The Max was developed for Russia's Yota WiMax network - 'fast mobile broadband have we' - operated in Moscow and St Petersburg by local telco, the scary-sounding Scartel.
