HTC Pyramid 'superphone' headed to T-Mobile in May Multiple sources are reporting that HTC's first dual-core Android phone, the 'Pyramid' will be headed to T-Mobile in May.
The 'superphone' will feature a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4.3 inch qHD display, and 4G/HSPA+ support.

Qualcomm announced their dual-core offering at CES and implied a Q2 availability, placing May squarely in the expected range.

HTC and T-Mobile have a long-standing relationship with Android devices, dating back to the launch of the first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1.

T-Mobile's HSPA+ network supports up to 14 Mbps downloads and 5.6 Mbps uploads.

In terms of codecs, the phone will support MPEG-4, MPEG-2, H.264, H.263, VC-1, DivX, WMV-9, Sorenson Spark, VP6, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR, FR, EFR, HR, WB-AMR, G.729a, G.711 and AAC stereo encode.

It sounds like a great phone, although I figured they would save that name for a quad core.

If T-Mobile had speeds anywhere close to what they advertise, this might be my next phone.

I don't know where you live but when connected to HSPA+ here in NYC I get 8Mbps...more than good enough for a phone. Have I ever hit 14.4? Hell no, lol.

They were offering a free trial offer here in florida about a year ago...I tried it and never even got 1.5mbps. On top of that, the voice service was total crap, on the rare occasion that it actually connected.

I get 8-9mps in most parts of Charlotte. Never seen 14 anywhere that I've been.

Still faster than AT&T and Verizon in my area.

Any more news on this phone?
About time to replace my trusty G1.
Hopefully before the big take over by AT&T
