HTC Sensation 4G really clears the FCC, no doubt about it anymore
It was only days ago when we were pretty sure that the HTC Sensation 4G had successfully passed the FCC's rigorous testing procedures. However, the latest piece in the puzzle solves the mystery, but creates another.

You see, the HTC Sensation 4G has indeed been given the thumbs up by the FCC meaning that its launch for T-Mobile is pretty close to becoming a reality. We know because while browsing through the commission’s web page, we stumbled upon a smartphone bearing the PG58130 model number, which was clearly labeled as the HTC Sensation 4G. If that is not enough of a clue, the device boasted a 1700 MHz radio making it a perfect fit for T-Mobile’s 4G wireless network. What sparked our curiosity is that the smartphone, which we were trying to identify 3 days ago, had a different model number – PG58100. This may eventually turn out to be anything from a slightly different Sensation 4G modification to a whole new device.

Now, some of you may ask where the T-Mobile myTouch 4G (a.k.a. HTC Doubleshot) is in this equation. After all, it was believed that exactly that device was hiding behind the PG58100 model number. Well, sorry to disappoint you, but it is not the Doubleshot that we are dealing with here. The Doubleshot's ROM just leaked on the web revealing that its model number is going to be PG59100.

If everything unfolds as planned, we should see the HTC Sensation 4G launching this summer, supposedly as early as next month.

from what i know about htc is that the last 3 numbers of the model number tell the difference between different variations. the PG58100 will probably be a European model and the PG58130 is the t-mobile model. there should be a PG58110 and PG58120 model that will pop up with different 3g frequencies
