    Here is a summary of all the recent HTC fcc filings and what we think we know about them based on the discussion in this thread:

    PB76100: Model: Legend Carrier: Unknown GSM+SIM carrier
    PB31200: Model: Incredible Carrier: Verizon Wireless
    PB99300: Model: Nexus One Carrier: Verizon Wireless
    PB99200: Model: ? (probably N1) Carrier: European GSM (likely Vodafone WCDMA VIII)
    PB81120: Model: ? (Windows Mobile so who cares) Carrier: ?
    PB99110: Model: ? (N1 is PB99100) Carrier: GSM+SIM carrier (likely AT&T based on supported WCDMA bands)

    Motorola filling mentioned in this thread
    IHDT56LB1: Mode: ? (has 1500mAh battery so maybe Shadow) Carrier: CDMA2000 (likely Verizon)

    - - - - - This was the original first post of the thread - - - - -
    Saw it pop up this morning. Already a blog story about it:

    Good catch, but I believe this one is for AT&T!

    PB99100 (T-mob N1)
    supports: GSM850/1900 & WCDMA IV
    T-mob is the only U.S. carrier that uses WCDMA IV for 3G

    PB99110 (the new filling)
    supports: GSM850/1900 & WCDMA II & V
    AT&T is the only U.S. carrier that uses WCDMA II & V

    As was reported when the N1 came out, AT&T users could use the N1 by using their sim cards but would not be able to access AT&T 3G. This phone seems to address AT&T users specifically.

    I have to agree with you. Just wishful thinking for Verizon. Hopefully Bravo will coming soon now. Also, do you know what bands the worldphones run on through Verizon?

    This cant be the nexus one for att/verizon? Do you only need to file with FCC once?

    DOH!!! I was so excited for this to be coming to VZW. I'm growing tired of waiting.

    As am I... Anticipation can only be built before so long before customers start wondering off to the companies who are supplying the demand.

    Whatever phone this is, it's likely for AT&T. It clearly states the tested bands are GSM/GPRS and WCDMA (UMTS/HSPA). Won't work on Verizon or Sprint.

    No new HTC Android phone, No CDMA Iphone! Come on Verizon! You mean all we get is a pair of PALM phones until the Nexus comes out???? There's got to be something in the works. Why is it that the #1 carrier in the country get phones that are #2.

    Don't forget about the Droid and the Eris, a lot of other people on other Carriers probably would love those phones.

    yeah, i dont see why people on verizon always complain that they arent getting good phones while att still dosent have any android phones. quit your bitchin' and go buy a droid

    I beginning to think that the Eris is the way to go. Next week I can use my new every 2. I wanted to wait for something new from HTC, but without a nibble and a half dead phone, I'm not sure I can wait too much longer. I never used an HTC phone and I wanted to give the company a try. I definitely don't want to use Windows Mobile or Blackberry.

    Hmmm...VZW keeps letting AT&T bash them (through nothing but false advertising) and is letting all carriers catch up to them in the "superphone" race. I keep visualizing The Tortoise and the Hare. Could Big Red be biding their time knowing they have something huge in the making, or are they just satisfied w/ the Droid?

    sadly, i think they have a little hard on for the droid. i'm no longer optimistic that they are quiet cause of something huge in the making. next big thing will be the nexus.

    Who needs android when you have the iPhone 3GS?!?! :D


    But I think the reason Verizon people are upset is because all the other carriers have (or are getting) these amazing new phones. And the Droid really doesn't compare to those. AT&T has been above the competition for years with the iPhone. T-Mobile has had the majority of the Android phones so far (and T-Mobile UK is getting the Bravo). Sprint has the Hero and Moment and is getting the Supersonic. And Verizon has...... the Droid? Eris? That is why we complain.

    Guess it will be the Verizon N1 for me in the Spring. Sure wish we got a Bravo like HTC phone.

    I really just want the following things in a phone:

    1) It needs to be very capable as a phone (ie great coverage and doesn't drop calls)..for me, that means Verizon--I get coverage in surprisingly remote places.

    2) A camera that doesn't have any silly limitations like no flash.

    3) It needs to be durable. I am outdoors a LOT and I take my phone. My phone needs to be tough and preferably I can put it in a great case (slide out keyboards aren't great if you can't use them ensconced in a case).

    4) It needs to make my life easier. I do a LOT of outside activities and most days I have with me my GPS, my phone (LG Juke--don't laugh, it's small and works well), a camera, and an ipod. I want a device to combine all of those with as few compromises as possible.

    5) I want to support Android.

    If it wasn't for step 5, I could already have a phone to suit my needs I'd just be using WinMo (shudder). I'd prefer HTC and Sense UI but at this point I'm getting pretty tired of waiting.

    Sasquatch - you hit my top 4 reasons on the head. Outdoors, good coverage, nice pics and music. Want to wait for the next "superphone" Bravo, Supersonic, N1 - don't really care which one.

    I've thought of WinMo as well, OmniaII (your thoughts?) or the Eris. Figure I could use either for 12mos while the rest of the phones come out and folks get some experience with them.

    That pretty much sums up my criteria list too. It is starting to make the Motoroi look pretty attractive. And although we don't know if the 'roi is comng to VZW, at least we know it exists. Albeit w/out sense.

    I dont know for sure. But I am guessing any time you change the frequencies on which the phone operates you have to refile with the FCC even if all the other hardware remains the same. Being that this new phone will now work with AT&T 3G they had to refile.

    Eris is a nice phone but it is limited and will feel even more limited in a couple months. Even though I want Sense, I may end up going MotoDroid in the next week or so. They are starting to make some really tough cases for it and on the forums they have it reliably running at 1ghz and with the improvements of 2.0 and 2.1 coming down the pike, it's making Sense UI less of a must have.
  24. kyler13

    I agree with the last part. Improvements to the stock UI are closing the gap with Sense. While I'm not interested in the Droid, it does give me the option of going the "known specs" route of picking up the Nexus One if the Incredible, or whatever it will be called, falls short in some way, shape, or form. It's nice to have options, particularly on Verizon when normally you're limited to a single device and don't know what you're getting until release is imminent.
