HTC Pyramid Specs Hit The Inbox, Launching In June With Android 2.4?

I know there is a lot of confusion regarding the AT&T/T-Mobile deal but what seems to be forgotten is that life goes on. The deal could fall apart, the government could reject it or a thousand other things could take place that causes it to not happen. With that in mind, T-Mobile is running business as usual which means phones will still launch. Thankfully, to try and smooth the masses I’ve received some coincidentally timed information regarding the HTC Pyramid specs along with a release date from a solid source.

  • 480 x 800 display
  • Dual-core 1.2 GHz processor
  • 768MB of processor RAM
  • 8MP rear cam; VGA front cam
  • HSPA+ (14.4 Mbps)
  • Android 2.4 (repeat 2.4)
  • DLNA
  • HTC Sense 3.0

Android 2.4 you say? Yup, that’s what we are being told! Our source pinpoints a June release timeframe though the actual day is unknown. Our ninja did say that it is considerably sleeker and lighter than the HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon.

On a second note, we’re also told that a slider version of the myTouch 4G possibly a myTouch 4G slide is on the horizon also with Android 2.4 and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor.

As I started in the beginning life will still go on and you should buy phones, change rate plans and go about your T-Mobile experience as you did when you woke up yesterday morning. Any changes won’t happen for AT LEAST 12 months and in that time, things will become a lot clearer as to what the “new” AT&T will look like.

    Yes, life will go on, but why am I going to spend money ( and tie myself a contract, when I haven’t had one, nor needed one quite frankly, in nearly a decade ) for this phone when we have zero indication AT&T will be just as nice to TMobile customers coming over, as TMobile was to it’s own customers, and several garbage scow’s worth of evidence to the affirm that AT&T will treat it us as they already their present customers….with disdain.

    I normally can appreciate a “putting up a good front in the face of hardship or difficulty”, but this is ridiculous.
    Announcements made now, just PLUMMETED in importance to below ZERO relevance to anyone with a hint of a clue.

    I heard that when AT&T got Cingular, all plans were grand-fathered and they did announce that they will honor all existing plans from t-mo customers. So, as much as I hate the idea of this, I am not worried about plan going up because it won’t for the length of my contract. And if it does afterward, then I am free to switch to another carrier (if there is still any that doesn’t belong to AT&T left by then)

      AT&T Statement: “T-Mobile Customers Will Have To Replace 3G Handsets After Merge”

      • Anonymous

        and what about those who purchase right before? exactly. And you could always buy full price

      • Anonymous

        I was only talking about people worried about their plan being jacked up. For the phone, AT&T said that they took into account the phone upgrade in their acquisition cost which means that they are planning on paying for at least part of the upgrade. Considering that the acquisition won’t be finalized for at least another 12-18 months (if ever) it means that the phone you’re buying now will be obsolete by then anyway and you will most likely welcome an upgrade.

    I’m going to have a really tough time deciding between this and EVO 3D. But with the recent ATT buyout I’m leaning towards Sprint. I’m no fan of 3D but the other features of EVO 3D look amazing.

  • 2Noob4U

    I’m going back to Big Red if the merge happens. AT&T is horrible. I don’t care what new phone they have. Their service is terrible.

  • Smart

    Okay, I just got off the phone with customer care. They told me to not worry, and keep buying phones, especially if I plan on leaving when the acquisition takes place. I was told that even if I get a phone one day prior to the approved acquisition date, I’ll still be able to cancel without an etf. I was told my contract will only be good with T-Mobile and not att. So that is why att will be offering free phones at time of acquisition, to get us locked into their contracts. Info via T-Mobile cancellation department.

    • playdumb

      that is worth the paper it’s written on, there’s a huge push to get people on contracts with tmo.the contract is binding unless there is a material change in your service not the company owner read terms and conditions online

  • Smart

    Oh yeah! I guess our signed terms and conditions with T-Mobile state the contract is only valid with them, and not a company it’s sold to.

  • Applepiter

    Would you spend a lot of money on a new phone and extend your contract two years with a buy out in the works? Especially when the mhz spectrum will be vacated in a year? I think not-

    • Anonymous

      I won’t be signing a contract but I will be buying the phone. Also, I don’t think at&t will necessarily be vacating that spectrum, at least not immediately, all of which will come in time, which would make this phone outdated anyway.

        Some “Outdated” phones are resellabile…. Not this with no 3 or 4 g once the AT&T switch kicks in!!! Save the landfill… use your devices as long as possible!!!

    this was from the benchmark of the Pyramid

    “The results for HTC Pyramid is a bit disappointing. Given that it is clocked at 1.2GHz, it should overcome its slight deficiency over ARM’s Cortex A9 design so the CPU scores should have been similar. As for the GPU performance, no one really knows how well Adreno 220 was supposed to perform and so far, it doesn’t look all that impressive.”

    Why have the first 2.4 device be a modified android?

  • Stratspider230

    Screw AT&T and their money. They can throw 39 billion into a buyout of T-Mobile, but cant do that to keep their employees from getting laid off or fired. That company needs to rot in a ditch

    No qHD display anymore? And damn, if it’s coming out in June, I might as well wait for the SGSII…

  • Meagan

    If this mobile is released in late June 2011, that’ll give less than 8 months of 3G/4G data. After that you can use it via AT&T Edge, or sell the mobile on eBay. You know there will be a big demand for Edge-only capable mobiles from (DMM’s)discontinued-mhz-mobiles.

      The merger/approval is estimated at 12 months. I doubt they’ll make that when regulator review is involved and that doesn’t mean they turn off all T-mobile towers on Day 1. Furthermore it isn’t going to be a letter in the mail saying your phone is now a paper weight. There will be some sort of credit for your device and a 2yr upgrade price at the minimum. Heck T-mobile gave away any phone for free in February. Same deal is easily possible.
      Add to that the current rumor of the G2x and Pyramid being Quadband and you have no reason to avoid this phone.

    Is it future proof? (ATT 3G) I like to keep my phones +1 yr

    I was seriously excited and finally content to upgrade my G1 to the Sidekick 4G….until this post.

    Damn you android -_-

    The new AT&T is going to look just like the old AT&T – a money grubbing black hole.
