HTC Windows Phone 7 Hardware Shows up at FCC, FINALLY

There’s not much to see here, but we all knew that HTC could only be quiet on the subject of Windows Phone 7 for so long. Granted, there’s not much to see in the FCC filing; but we already know the minimum hardware specs anyway. The phone does support the GSM 850/UMTS I and II bands; AT&T anyone?

We’ve been under the impression for a while that we could expect hardware from HTC, Samsung, LG, and ASUS. Clues about hardware from many of those vendors has already made the rounds, now we’re just waiting for something official.

  • UMTS Bands 1 & II only give you compatibility with at&t's 1900 band, no 850. This is a Euro handset.
  • Euro handset for the FCC? Hmmmm...
  • at&t 850 band is band V, maybe the docs have been misintepreted but it wouldnt be the first time a Euro handset has been through the FCC:
  • Why would they get FCC approval for a European handset? From what I can see, both T-Mobile and AT&T use 850 and 1900.
  • If it was Euro wouldnt there also be a 2100 band?
  • This is obviously a US device.
    I'm more interested in its specs and what it looks like.
