HTC Panache 4G

The HTC Panache 4G, a.k.a. the HTC Glacier for regional carriers, is now available on Cincinnati Bell. Formerly exclusive to Canadian carrier Mobilicity, the Panache has a 1 GHz second-gen Snapdragon processor, a 3.8-inch WVGA screen with 480 x 800 resolution, front and rear-facing cameras, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Plus it's got HSDPA/HSUPA support, so it’ll be able to take advantage of Bell’s “4G” speeds. The Panache will set you back $199 after mail-in rebate on a two-year contract (or $499 without commitment) and is shipping as we speak.

Good to see: small yet mighty, Cinci Bell.

Not that shabby. Not really impressed either Cincinnati Bell and T-Mobile share the same HSPA(+) frequency so they are interchangeable.

Now if only T-Mobile would sell that version so it doesn't have the ugly "MyTouch" at the top.

Good Lord!! another 2.3 gingerbread tease! If its "ready" for the Panache/ Glacier then it should be ready for the mytouch. Only difference is the mytouch sense UI!?! C'mon already!.

BTW. Nice rock solid phone! congrats Bell!

I had the 2.3.4 Espresso update on my phone for a few weeks. And running AOSP 2.3.4 as of current.

And the myTouch 4G Slide/Doubleshot is shipping with Gingerbread as well (and I think a version of Sense 3.0 with a myTouch flair), so it's only a matter of time.

(They need to get it together, cause yeah the only difference is the UI.)

It's amazing that this phone can come with Gingerbread, but when HTC released other high end phones like the Droid Incredible 2 or the Thunderbolt, they were stuck with Froyo.
