KDDI unveils WiMAX-ready phone

KDDI Corp. unveiled Japan’s first smart phone compatible with the WiMAX high-speed network Monday, aiming to differentiate its lineup from other carriers’ and keep pace with the smart phone trend.

Running Google’s Android operating system, the HTC EVO WiMAX ISW11HT has a 4.3-inch multitouch screen and will debut under the au brand sometime after early April.
