Vodafone to kick off German LTE with HTC Velocity

updated 09:10 pm EST, Wed February 8, 2012

First Android/LTE phone to hit Europe

Vodaphone will soon launch Europe's first smartphone to support both Android and LTE in the continent's first real adoption of 4G. The carrier has confirmed that it will soon begin shipping the HTC Velocity in Germany, with other countries arriving soon afterwards. It represents a white colored variant of the HTC Vivid being sold in the US by AT&T, and elsewhere as the Raider.

It offers a 4.5-inch qHD touchscreen and runs Android 2.3. It is slightly more powerful than the Vivid, sporting a Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon rather than a 1.2GHz processor. The main camera is eight megapixels with autofocus and 1080p video recording. The front-facing camera shoots at 1.3 megapixels.

Vodaphone will most likely provide pricing and availability information at a press event scheduled by Vodafone Germany, HTC, and Qualcomm for next week. [via The Unwired]
