We know Everything Everywhere will be the first UK carrier to roll out a superfast 4G LTE network, but what about the first 4G phone?
If you listen to Pocket-lint, that honour will go to the HTC One XL, the 4.7in bruiser that is all but identical to the One X aside from one very important area: LTE support.
The combined Orange and T-Mobile uber-network was recently given the green light by Ofcom to get its next-generation 4G infrastructure up and running from September 11, giving it a massive advantage over rival networks Three, Vodafone and O2.
But of course the ability to put the networking pedal down isn't much good if you haven't got the hardware to do the job. Hence talk of the One XL, which has been available through AT&T in the US and via Vodafone Germany in Europe for a few months now.
Pocket-lint's source reckons the One XL will be made available to EE's UK subscribers in the next few weeks, with the network's 4G service expected to be fully up and running around the end of September or in early October.
