Is there any owner of this new HTC gadget in this forum?

HTC Max 4G, the first 4G phone in the world

So far I cannot find anything for my new Max, except microSD.

If there's accessory producers reading this forum, please take into consideration this amazing WinMo device!

Welcome to the forum

MaybaI can be mistaken, but I think you are the first HTC Max user on this site, can you please post some pictures and reviews for the rest of us?

I´m sure someone will give you the right direction on your questions

Good luck,

Please excuse me for replying late... only saw your post now

Here are some pictures (hopefully flickr links work; first two photos were taken by SonyEricsson P1i)

Pyramidal Box

The officer on the picture is the ad of a 2008 Russian film "Admiral", which can be watched on the Yota TV channel.
(Yota is the name of the 4G network)

Features

My poor translation from Russian to English --> both languages are foreign to me.
"Yota. Now Music and favorite TV are always with you.
All the best of music. Tens of TV channels.
2 years free of charge. Already in operation.

Internet. Fast than ever.
Amazing high speed access to 4G Mobile WiMax.
Always on-line. No limit".

As a newby I am limited to only 4 pictures... so I post separately.



Minimum accessories, no soft case no microSD -- not reasonable for a $1300 phone


Close resemblance to HTC HD

No flash


Only 3 buttons -- I really hate the guy who removed the 'cancel' button

With my beloved SE P1i


Comparison to iPhone


Sorry I cannot write any review now since it is my first WinMo phone. Perhaps after weeks I can give some comment.

I wonder how the contrast and resolution of the screen compares to the iPhone. But please let us know your thoughts on the phone once you've broken it in.

Thanks a lot Begovaya!!

I´m sure this are the first exclusive pics of Max on this site!
Thanks a lot and hope you can post your reviews about it once you´ll get more familiar with it.
About comparisions with other devices it has almost the same specs as HTC HD, and there are already thousands of comparisions between them, so let´s no waste time on it (Just a suggestion).

The most important here is the WIMAX service so let us know about it in detail.

About the accesories you are looking for, I´m sure you can use the same as the HD ones, same case for software and apps (Someone correct me if I´m wrong):

I´m sure soon Max will have it´s own dedicated thread

Spaciva,

Thanks for response! I guess you mean "Spasibo".

Also thank you for telling me the HD forum.

Regarding the 4G WiMax network, I'll share the experience in the HD forum.

I think the owners of HD can tell about this better than I. The screen is larger than iPhone (it's only noticeable when you place them side by side)

The resolution is fantastic and it is the first phone that makes me feel surfing is alright on a phone.

Some people say 65k colors are enough. THAT AIN'T TRUE. I copy my favorite photos which I took by a Canon EOS 5D (of course the files are shrunk to reasonable size) to the Max4G. The 'discontinuity of color gradient' is very obvious. (I hope you understand my English) That's due to TOO FEW COLORS.

But still, the resolution is great and photos look subtle.

65k is a problem, but phone is not guilty for this. The problem is in Microsoft e.g in Windows mobile. It only supports 65k. Maybe in new versions it will be corrected
