T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G Hands-On

The HTC Amaze 4G was officially announced yesterday at Mobilize, and was out on the town last night celebrating at T-Mobile event in San Francisco.

I got to spend a little time with the handset last night and snapped a few pictures of the handset. Pictures are actually one of the Amaze’s claims to fame. The handset has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p video recording capabilities.

Where the Amaze is going to stand out from the competition is in what the camera can do. The handset has a backside illuminated sensor, zero shutter lag and a dual LED flash, as well as advanced digital camera features, including SmartShot, PerfectPics, SweepShot, ClearShot HDR and BurstShot. The phone also has a built-in video editor for editing videos you shoot on the road, and has a direct-to-camera button as well as a direct-to-camcorder button (a first for a T-Mobile device) for those of you who like to shoot a lot of mobile video.

Outside of the photo arena, spec-wise the handset has a 4.3-inch qHD Super LCD multitouch display, 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and will come running Android 2.3.

You can snag one of the handsets starting on October 10th for $259.99 with a new 2-year contract and after a $50 mail in rebate.
