Now that both Rogers and Bell have alive and kickin' LTE networks, it's high time we see a full lineup on them, right? HTC's doing its part, at least, by offering the Raider 4G LTE (aka Holiday), a device we've seen announced in Korea and Australia so far. Curiously, Rogers lists the device as having a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, a downtick from its Asian counterpart, though everything else appears to be the same: it offers a 4.5-inch qHD (960 x 540) display, a full gigabyte of RAM, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video capture, a 1.3MP front-facing cam for video chat and runs with Android 2.3.4 and HTC Sense 3.0 installed. Rogers will be the first in Canada to get the phone out the door, since it's available in stores and online today for $150 with a three-year commitment, whereas Bell has it listed as "coming soon" on its official site with no actual pricing indicated (MobileSyrup says it will likely be sold for $170). If your heart goes pitter-patter for this Raider, go ahead and pick one up -- just keep in mind that the lost ark is not included.
