REVIEW: HTC Velocity 4G

The Velocity 4G is like a speedway hot rod - smoking 4G data transfer rates are addictive, but the battery charge depletes quickly and you could be in for bill shock.

The HTC Velocity 4G launched last week by Telstra is the first LTE/4G mobile phone available in Australia. Until now the only device able to use Telstra’s new mobile network has been a 4G USB laptop modem that we tested in late 2011.

When used in Telstra 4G coverage areas the new HTC Velocity 4G smartphone promises theoretical peak speeds of 2-40Mbps down & 1-10Mbps up, with some important caveats.
