HTC Android Slider casually slides into the FCC
Remember that HTC Facebook poll regarding what name they should side with for their next Android phone that's being regarded as  “playful and full of youth?” It turns out that the winner was none other than the HTC Wildfire and it might actually be the new handset that was recently approved by the FCC. Going by the model name HTC PC70110, the device looks somewhat youthful with its daringly sharp blue accented slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Looking closer into it, we rarely get to see photos of approved HTC phones from the the FCC – so it makes you really wonder what is the exact reasoning behind it. As for the handset, it looks to support AT&T's 3G bands (850/1900 MHz), but it could also be bound to some our Canadian friends to the north as well. Below the touchscreen, you can almost make out the same touch sensitive buttons found on the HTC Droid Incredible – leaving little doubt that it will indeed be an Android powered phone. And for the first time ever, we are seeing a trackpad being utilized on an HTC slider phone. The few buttons on the QWERTY that can be clearly seen from the images looks more like the ones found on the HTC Touch Pro2. Whether this is indeed going to end up becoming the HTC Wildfire, one thing is definite about it all – HTC is clearly on a roll and it doesn't look like they're slowing down any time soon.
