HTC does what Google wouldn’t: sell an LTE phone that sidesteps AT&T
You won’t see it advertised on billboards or television, you won’t hear it mentioned in a carrier store, and your less technologically-savvy friends most certainly won’t know about it — but quietly, HTC’s done something extraordinarily important this month: it’s broken AT&T’s stranglehold on its nationwide LTE network.
I can’t underscore enough what a big deal this is. It’s a move that even Google, for all its money, power, and influence, didn’t make with the Nexus 4.
