HTC Vigor Gets Bluetooth 3.0 Certification from SIG
It looks like the HTC Vigor, which has been rumored to pack a 720p HD resolution display in a smartphone form factor, may be closer to launching on Verizon Wireless’s 4G LTE network as the device has recently been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), which reveals the device to sport a Bluetooth 3.0 radio onboard.
In addition to 1280 X 720-pixel display, the Vigor will pack in a lot of feature and will toe-to-toe with a number of popular and highly anticipated smartphones launching in the U.S. market this Fall, including Apple’s iPhone 5, Samsung’s Galaxy S II, and Motorola’s Droid Bionic, which is also headed to Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Those features include a fast dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, an 8-megapixel rear camera, front-facing camera, a new version of Sense (HTC Sense 3.5), and Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.
The HTC Vigor should also be the first smartphone from HTC to be released with Beats Audio following the company’s $300 million investment in better audio.
The device has been rumored in the past to launch on October 5th.

If HTC has phones with 720p HD displays with pixels of 1280×720, and since the rumor mill has it that the new Nexus will have a 720p HD screen…can we still hold out hope that HTC might be the maker of the new Nexus. Either of the two..HTC or Samsung will make a nice Nexus device…my hope is HTC as the maker. But unlike the last time when i skipped the Nexus S…i am in this time preferably hoping HTC as maker but will still get it if samsung makes it. Also will love to see it on all the major carriers.
