Mobile phone carrier Verizon Wireless was rumored not too long ago to be on its way to launch a new HTC device on its airwaves, and some new info on the matter have just emerged.
It seems that the handset in question has managed to pass through FCC testing and that it is heading to Big Red's network
pretty fast, though no info on when that should happen emerged.
We already had the chance to take a look at this handset, and we knew that it should include a sliding QWERTY keyboard and a red-and-black design, things that have been confirmed once again.
Moreover, the FCC filing shows that the new mobile phone comes with CDMA 2000 and GSM 850 connectivity options, in addition to EV-DO Rev. A capabilities.
The specifications list for this device
should also include Bluetooth connectivity, as well as support for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi at 2.4GHz frequencies, as Engadget notes in a recent article
For the time being, however, no info on other hardware specs of this device emerged into the wild, though it seems that previous reports on it packing a 1.2GHz processor haven't been confirmed as of yet.
However, one thing that seems to be pretty certain is that the device should come with a 4-inch touchscreen display to go along with that sliding QWERTY.
Thing that still has to be learned is the handset
's name, since the FCC docs only show the HTC “PD42100” model number it comes with.
While there might not be too many details available on this new HTC world phone headed for Verizon, there are some photos of it that we can take a look at, so as to make a better idea of what Big Red's customers would soon be able to purchase.
Hopefully, it won't be too long before the wireless carrier
decides to unveil more on this beauty, for it looks pretty appealing, and some of you are certainly already wondering when it would land, and what price tag it should sport.
