HTC 8S passes FCC with support for both AT&T and T-Mobile US

The HTC 8S has passed through the FCC, and it's revealed that the Windows Phone 8 handset will support both T-Mobile US and AT&T HSPA bands. While this is not to say other carriers wont pick up the device at a later point, it confirms availability for consumers who are with either network.

Without LTE, the HTC 8S sports a 1Ghz dual-core chip with a 4" WVGA display, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage (with MicroSD support), 5MP camera, and a 1700mAh battery. If the internals weren't enough, Beats Audio is also featured (without an extra amp) and an array of unique two-toned colour combinations are available.


The HTC 8S has also been rumoured to be heading to US Cellular as well. It'll be interesting to see where the Windows Phone is made available, in both the US and Canada.
