HTC Bliss arrives at the FCC showing its love for Verizon - plus, first shot found in mailer?
Now that it has made its way to the glorious halls of the FCC, we should be expecting to see the HTC Bliss making its way fittingly to the hands of female consumers seeing that it has been touted as a device specifically catered for women – or possibly even males?

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?
