HTC Bliss arrives at the FCC showing its love for Verizon - plus, first shot found in mailer?
In any event, the handset is found sporting support for the CDMA 850/1900 MHz bands, which means that it’ll no doubt be tying the knot with Verizon in the very near future. Additionally, we find in the filing that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are naturally on board, but interestingly enough, it’s going to be a world phone as well seeing that it packs a GSM 900MHz radio inside of it.
Still, those are the only specifics that are known regarding the device, but some believe it to sport a screen size of 4-inches or lower. However, one xda-developers member managed to obtain a Verizon mailer that shows a guy of all people holding an unknown HTC branded smartphone. Although we’re only given a small peek of its rear side, it’s believed to be none other than the HTC Bliss in the flesh.
Besides a blurry looking rendered shot, we haven’t necessarily seen an actual image of the device, but it’s rather ironic to see a smartphone made specifically for women to be held by none other than a man. Still, who says that we need to have gender placements with phones?

Another thing, I don't usually hear a lot of females using the word, "Bliss," even. That's more of a homosexual phrase. I think Htc was directing this device towards the homosexual population all along, just Htc probably doesn't want to admit it! In the future if they clearly want to indicate a device is for the females the should name it the, "Vagina," or maybe the, "Ovaries."

You people are crazy... Brainless group of people... NOne of you would ever work for htc... Did you know that *** market is the best out there...??? If this phone is "homo" only... Then it will be the phone of the year... Like lady gaga and her followers in twitter.. most of them are ***... And all of them would buy that phone... I bet any of you would love to have a queer phone if it had great specs... And i bet you'd buy it...

lol there are way too many unregistered users with anger problems. Calm down, we are just having a little bit of fun. You can't deny how funny that photo is on their advertisment.

i don't even care if he's ghey. i just think it's funny that to show off the supposed "woman's phone" Verizon chose a more feminine looking guy. sorry if i offended you perhaps the correct term is gender confused anyway. don't get so riled up because you're ghey though. you're like a angry black guy. we're just having fun.

This looks interesting. A phone directed to bögar (that's the swedish name for what that man in the picture looks like...)
Actually, if they'd advertise the phone with that picture on the streets, i'd think it would be a little disgusting. no offense to people like him but...

lol straight guys wear pink shirts too guys. If that was a dude in a black shirt, you would think he is looking at a chick all sexy like. Maybe its ment to be ambiguous like that so everyone thinks he is looking at them regardless of orientation. Think of that? lol.

dude, i wear pink shirts, imagine him with a black shirt and tell me he's not ghey.
18. PeterIfromsweden (Posts: 1230; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
He looks like a bög (that's the swedish name for what that man in the picture looks like...) even with a shirt of any color.
