Some info we received seems to confirm that the upcoming Sprint 7 Pro goes by the model number HTC T7575. This comes from the breakdown of the ROM, which yielded some interesting, but still cursory information. For instance, it will have
- Qualcomm and Broadcom chipsets on board
- Broadcom 802.11 DHD Network Adapter ("with 11nmode disabled")
- Sprint Navigator is there
- Sprint Zone
- HTC Hub, Stocks
- WM7_7.0_11_JAN" "ParentBranchBuild"="7389" aka 'NoDo'
- "TimeStamp"="20110124-1636" (Finalized 1/24/2011)
Interestingly, there's a few AT&T references thrown in, suggesting that Ma Bell may get this device too, which would not surprise us in the least. As to the bad news, there's really no evidence that this has WiMax (4G) on board, so never say never, but don't get your hopes up either--not looking good.
Also of note, when we used WP7 game developer's Elbert Perez's stats page, we saw a few listings for unknown phones, evidently being used in testing:
- HTC T7575 (now known as the CDMA 7 Pro)
- Samsung GT-I8703 - ?
- HTC MWP6985 - ?
The Samsung was speculated by other sites to be an Android device, but alas, it's playing Elbert's games meaning this is a hitherto unknown Samsung Windows Phone, quite possibly a CDMA variant of the Focus or Omnia 7. Likewise, the HTC MWP6985 is also a Windows Phone, but we have no info on it (the CDMA Trophy is the HTC PC40200, so probably not that).
Anyone have anything they'd like to add to the discussion?
Thanks, Manos P., for getting us started
