A couple of weeks ago the first photos of the HTC Holiday emerged, displaying its impressive hardware innards for the world to see. Now, BGR has landed some new photos of this up-and-coming device, which includes speed tests that show what AT&T's LTE network is capable of. Clocking an astounding 29Mbps, AT&T is looking to put the hurt on VZW's LTE network once it becomes more widespread.

Yes, a cotton swab is now an acceptable standard of measurement.

The hardware on this phone is nothing to scoff at either, as early reports revealed a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP and 1.3MP cameras, and Android 2.3.4.

There's no official word on when we can expect this device to hit Ma Bell's sales floor, but from the look of it, that time should be drawing near.

    Is that a "tobacco pipe" above the phone in the fifth picture?

      that's funny :) Actually, if you go through the stream of pictures again it looks like faucet.

        It looks like a mirror in a bathroom, hence the faucet. lol a pipe?, you silly goose :)

    Pretty good speeds, we went from 13Mbps in one leak to more than double that to 29Mbps, there catching up to Verizon's LTE speeds. If AT&T can roll this out even faster than Verizon and still get the best of the best in Android handsets from my favorite OEM, I will gladly dump Verizon.

    The DROID brand is nothing more than a joke now, a following, a meme, and I think it could easily turn Android into what we hate the iPhone fanboism for.

    Considering LTE on AT&T is rumored to be priced based on speed rather than data cap, it might be one of the best alternatives since Verizon milks you for every cent.

    29 Mbps? That's pretty fast. Good for you AT&T. Though the only problem with this is that not no one is using AT&T's LTE network yet. They'll only roll it out in one city soon while VZW has it in 100+ cities covering a supposed 100mil people? Yet VZW still gets really really good speed for that many cities.
