Sprint To Launch HTC Supersonic Next Week?

Omer Saleem

The first complete 4G WiMAX enabled phone to hit the market, since the prototype by Nokia, is going to be by none other than HTC. This company amazes me to the core and I think they are the ones who will give very tough competition to both Apple and Nokia in terms of phone hardware.
