HTC Amaze 4G pre-orders start today, ship on October 12th

The current big bad for T-Mobile’s lineup is the HTC Amaze 4G, and it’s just days away from a nationwide release. If you’re not the retail type and want ensure your device gets to you as soon as possible, T-Mobile is accepting pre-orders right now. The Amaze 4G is $259.99 with a new 2-year contract, and phones will begin shipping to customers on Wednesday, October 12th. That price is, unfortunately, after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The Amaze 4G has the (current) top-of-the-line 960x 540 4.3-inch display also seen in the Sensation 4G, with an 8 megapixel back camera supported by a full 2 megapixel front-facing shooter. The 1.5GHz dual-core processor will turn heads, as will a full gigabyte of RAM and 16 gigs of on-board storage. NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, and a 1730 mAh battery round out the package, all running on top of Gingerbread and Sense 3.0. T-Mobile’s HSPA+ “4G” network allows theoretical data speeds up to 42Mbps.
