FCC receives unknown GSM handset for testing
A unknown GSM quad band phone is about to go through the FCC testing process. Pictured in black and white, the handset resembles the HTC Hero (not the CDMA version) with a chin at the speaking end. We don't know the manufacturer, but we can assume that there will be many features on the phone. We can safely come to this comnclusion because of the 1600mAh battery that powers the device. There is 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and a TV tuner. Front and rear camera (with LED flash on the back shooter) are included and there is 512MB of RAM. The unit packs 1GB of internal storage. Now, there are a number of cellphone fans out there who have been checking out the FCC approvals each week to find the HTC Passion/Dragon. Since this is a GSM model, you can scratch this off the list. Heck, we don't even know if this is an HTC manufactured device despite the similarities to the Hero and the myTouch 3G, and we don't even know if the OS will be Android. Perhaps the old bamboo under the fingernails trick will get this handset to open up.
