“We are thrilled to continue growing our relationship with AT&T and excited for the HTC Vivid to be one of the first LTE devices on AT&T for the holiday season,” said Jason Mackenzie, president of global sales and marketing, HTC. “The HTC Vivid combines an exceptional display in a premium device that delivers a powerful smartphone to our customers through AT&T’s fast LTE and HSPA+ 4G network.”


HTC Vivid is equipped with the acclaimed HTC Sense user experience, which includes a customizable active lockscreen that puts the most important information and content, such as social updates, photos, weather or stock updates, at the forefront. Complete with an 8MP camera and dual microphones, you can record video in 1080p HD quality with surround sound and upload to YouTube to share with those closest to you. The camera records in high speed with 60 fps, and you can use the HTC movie Editor to clip and manage your video – all on your phone.


The HTC Vivid will arrive in AT&T company owned retail stores and online Nov. 6 for $199.99 with a two-year commitment.
