Unforunately, this may mean you will need to brush up your Russian, the device will be available only in Russia (at least for now) on the Yota Mobile WiMAX network.

The HTC MAX 4G features the same 3.8 inch, 800×480 WVGA touch screen display that is used in the HTC Touch HD. With the integrated GPS receiver you will always know exactly where you are, while the WiFi and WiMAX will ensure you have high-speed wireless data (you will be able to get proper data speeds of 70Mb/sec!).

The HTC MAX 4G is powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and is integrated with HTC´s TouchFLO 3D UI. The TouchFLO 3D UI turns Windows Mobile interface into a competent multimedia platform that should optimizes HTC MAX 4G´s 8GB of onboard storage.

HTC designed the MAX 4G for ultra high-speed access to video on demand, full track music downloads, online gaming, and file exchange for true broadband speeds.

HTC MAX 4G Features include:

  • Qualcomm ESM7206A 528 MHz processor
