HTC PB31200 jumps through the FCC flaunting CDMA bands
Trucking along without a decent sounding codename, the HTC PB31200 made its way though the FCC today and is looking to sport CDMA/CDMA2000 850/1900 MHz bands. So it basically means that it may make an appearance with either Verizon or Sprint. In addition to the FCC filings, the HTC PB3100 shows that it'll pack 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Other than that, it could be any guess to anyone as to what this may end up becoming – but test reports show that it uses a different battery than what's found on the current GSM version of the Nexus One. One other possibility points it to being the HTC Incredible, but it's only speculations for right now – or it could potentially be some handset that hasn't been revealed just yet. There's no stopping HTC from going all out and attacking the smartphone market after the rain of news surrounding some decent handset offerings.

Verizon and Tmo customers get all the manufacturers' love. AT&T customers (like me) feel so ignored.

I really hope this is not the Incredible because this means it's not going to be out for a while...from the leaked video that was release earlier this week, the phone already had the Verizon splash page loaded. I'm not too familiar with the FCC filings and all, but I was under the impression that most phones that go through the FCC are very generic, straight from the manufacturer. What does everyone else think? I was hoping for an Incredible release around the time or before the Nexus is to launch on Verizon; end of March. The Nexus is rumored to launch the first week of April.

hmm I always thought that once a phone passes through the FCC is was out in a month usually. I'm probably completely wrong tho lol. I hope the incredible launches soon too!

from what I can tell from the FCC website, it can vary. It appears the manufacturers send the initial design and specs to the FCC for preliminary approval and then they work with whatever carrier the phone is aimed for on various software/hardware tweaks, phase II and phase III testing, and then after all of that is done, it goes back to the FCC for final approval. I don't know for sure, I could be wrong, but from what I could tell, that is basically what happens.

The request for confidentiality states a date of August 6, 2010 so unfortunately I don't think a release is imminent, but hopefully they're just giving a lot of wiggle room. https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/prod/oet/forms/blobs/retrieve.cgi?attachment_id=1239600&native_or_pdf=pdf
