No 3G love for North America as the HTC Desire HD enters the FCC
posted by John V. / Sep 17, 2010, 1:30 PM
The HTC Desire HD recently entered the great halls of the FCC where its filing can be traced back to the device announced in Europe after spotting the product code “PD98100” on it. So it basically means that the handset seen by the FCC does not have support for North American 3G bands – hence why the EVO 4G is still the big name on the block over here. Sure the HTC Desire HD offers a lot of hope to GSM users all around the world, but sadly, North American users will have to look elsewhere since the Desire HD won't be flaunting support for current generation data speeds over here.

if u meant were slow over here in europe u are wrong we are also getting 4G once verizon gets 4G because vodafone owns half of verizon . and over vodafone already announced 4g LTE by the end of this year . so yea we are not behind we will be getting 4G around the same time u get 4G .
