HTC readying full touch phone with WiMAX?

HTC T8290 Leaked

HTC could be developing an even more advanced cellphone than its upcoming Touch HD, according to an alleged leak. So far codenamed only the T8290, the handset would have the same 3.8-inch touchscreen, Windows Mobile 6.1, and TouchFLO interface as the Touch HD but add in a WiMAX connection that would give it 4G speeds on the few networks that currently support the standard. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are also present, as is a back camera at an unknown resolution.

Which carriers would get the T8290 and when is unknown, though the handset appears tapped for Russia's WiMAX provider Yota and supports the same 2.5GHz band used by Sprint's just-launched Xohm network. The carrier is already using HTC's related Touch Diamond but runs on a CDMA phone network versus the GSM more common in Russia and elsewhere. [via MoDaCo]
