HTC Whitestone passes the FCC

OK, it's time to quit teasing you with that render of the Verizon-branded HTC Whitestone and get down to brass tacks. What we're expected to become Verizon's version of the Touch Diamond 2 has made it through the FCC, bringing it that much closer to a store near you. It's still a little up in the air whether it'll be a world phone with CDMA and GSM radios, but it's probably more likely than not.

We'll pause, now, as your excitement builds.

  • Damn you Verizon, release the Touch Pro2 already.
  • have you heard any release dates on verizons tp2
  • only rumor at this point.
  • Doesn't look like it will be a GSM global roaming phone. According to the FCC documents the SAR testing only mentions CDMA frequencies.
  • FCC could care less what happens outside the US, so as long as it doesn't feature US GSM bands, they wouldn't test it.
  • How long till phones are normally released after FCC approval? Verizon your slow as molasses... for crying out loud.
