Default Is Htc Desire really coming to Metro pcs?

I Read that it will be coming sometime this month. If not true, does anyone know what other phones will (or might) be coming to metro in the near future?

There's a CDMA version of the Desire. I think US Celluar has been selling it.

The Bravo and Bravoc are architectually different, but they are classed as the same phone. Unlike the Hero, there is no CDMA sub forum here though.

Hang around here in the rooting forum for a while and you'll see it mentioned. There arent many (only a few carriers) that supply CDMA Desires. The development community befind it is miniscule compared to the GSM version.

I'm obsessed with new phones/technology; I just wish metro had more phones coming about more often. Anyways, I've been looking around; I'm pretty sure that the desire was just a nasty rumor. On the bright side, I did find something that sounded less like a rumor and more like the truth. Supposedly the "LG Bryce" has "passed the fcc" and recently- around july 14th or 15th- and will be coming to metro in the 4th quarter, october-december '11. Does anyone have any more info on this? I know metro is very secretive about stuff, but maybe someone has some inside info ;]
