We were briefly hoping that when the HTC Rose 100 (that's the S740 to you) made its way through the Federal Communications Commission testing it would emerge with U.S. 3G bands.

Alas, that's not the case.

But if you're burning for the Touch Pro-esque device, approval from the FCC means you'll be able to import this guy and not wait for (hopefully) a U.S. version.

As a reminder, here's what you'll be getting.
