Code named "Rose 130", which we suspect is the HTC S740, has passed FCC scrutiny and we might see it offered in U.S. markets soon. According to the report, the "Rose 130" features at least dual-band GSM(1900 and 850) and dual band 3G (850 and 1900) support as well as Wifi and Bluetooth. We expected the "Rose 130" to eventually become the S743.
HTC announced the S743 at last month's Consumer Electronics Show and it is expected to first be introduced unbranded and available through select retail outlets such as Dell.com and CDW.com.
Thanks, Marco, for the tip!
