HTC Max 4G Is World's First GSM/WiMAX Mobile Phone, Ups iPhone One G

The HTC Max 4G is not only pretty, light, and refreshingly sharp. It's also the world's first integrated GSM/WiMAX mobile phone, which means this thing can zoom at an iPhone-obliterating speed of 70 Mb/sec symmetric. It also means that, if you want one, you will have to move to Russia to get it. For now, it will be only available there in the Yota WiMAX network.

The design is good, and the feature set and connectivity are impressive, even if the demo video in Russian is more painful than watching the QVC channel while having a colonoscopy. [Yota]
