While HTC is enjoying the successful release of the HD2 over at T-Mobile, they are also sliding another Windows Phone past the FCC. The phone is identified as "PB92100" and is described as a Windows Phone throughout the FCC documentation.
As is customary, HTC has requested the FCC hold the specifications and images of the "PB92100" confidential. So we are left to speculate what this phone could be. We know from the FCC documents that "PB92100" has GSM/EDGE 850/1900 bands, Wifi, and Bluetooth (narrows it down a lot, doesn't it).
There is some speculation that this could be a Windows Phone 7 Series device but HTC has been relatively quiet on the whole WP7S topic. It's also awfully early for a WP7S device to land at the FCC.
Could it be the HTC HD Mini? The HD2 headed to another wireless carrier? Or maybe the "fact or fiction" Trophy? Only time will tell and we'll keep you posted if more is discovered on the HTC "PB92100".

It appears to be some sort of windows phone for either ATT or our Canadian neighbors or an unlocked device ala the treo pro. Sounds like no 3G TMo right now for this device as of now.
If we're going to dream, I hope it's an AT&T version of the Sprint HTC Evo. Even without WiMax 4g, that phone rocks! With it's better cameras (note the plural) and connectivity, the HTC Evo puts even the HTC HD2 to shame. And considering what Microsoft Mobile 7 seems like little more than an iPhone rehash, I think I might be switching to Android any way.
And yes, I know the FCC doc says "Windows". My comment above is just a comment on how disappointed I am with the direction Microsoft is taking their mobile platform. So far, it seems like iPhone circa 2007. That's why I say I am dreaming its an Android phone like an AT&T version of the Sprint Evo.
Due to confidentiality request at the FCC no further details have appeared and thus the HTC Desire still remains a mystery for now.
