Verizon's HTC 8X passing through FCC and beyond

The HTC 8X is well on its way to Verizon

We're aware that Verizon is most probably going to stock the HTC 8X - in fact, it's pretty much a certainty. Not only has the Windows Phone been confirmed to be heading to the US carrier by its own roadmap, but HTC also hinted in one of its press releases.

If that weren't enough, a HTC 8X video sports a Verizon 4G LTE logo on the rear panel of one of the featured models. Just to ensure there's little doubt left. Here's some more good news as today it has been reported that the FCC has cleared the HTC 8X for docking.

The CDMA handset (labelled PM23100 - cousin to C-3PO) features NFC, has been identified as a HTC Windows Phone, and supports the 700MHz LTE of Verizon. What's more is Engadget reports the device will also enable owners to use GSM frequencies (850 and 1900), which will help those who frequently travel beyond the shores.

We're getting there, folks. News is beginning to spread and Windows Phones are well on their way to carriers (and hopefully your pockets).
