Two phones heading for Sprint, HTC Tiara and ZTE Vital, visit the FCC

Two phones heading for Sprint, HTC Tiara and ZTE Vital, visit the FCC
Back in February, we told you about the HTC Tiara. This is a Windows Phone 8 handset that is apparently heading to Sprint with the GDR2 updated version of Windows Phone 8 pre-installed. The device also showed up in a Windows Phone 8 roadmap seen early last month. While the phone has yet to be introduced, it has visited the FCC as the HTC PO88100. The model features both CDMA connectivity and connectivity to Sprint's LTE pipeline.

There is nothing spectacular about the specs here. The HTC Tiara will feature a 4.3 inch Super LCD2 display with resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA). A dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is under the hood and 1GB of RAM is on board. 8GB of native storage is inside and the back and front facing snappers weigh in at 8MP and 1.6MP respectively. An 1800mAh battery powers the phone. Watch for a release of the HTC Tiara sometime this summer.

Meanwhile, the ZTE N8910 also took time to visit the FCC. Originally known as the ZTE Quantum, the Sprint branded phone now answers to the name, ZTE Vital. Offering LTE connectivity, the handset is equipped with a 5 inch 720 x 1280 display and a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU is driving the phone. There is 1GB of RAM aboard and 8GB of native storage inside. A rather high 2500mAh cell should keep the phone going all day long and on back, there is a 13MP camera with flash. Powered by Android 4.1, the ZTE Vital could launch anytime now for an on-contract price of under $100. As we told you the other day, Real Racing 3 comes pre-installed on the unit.

Sprint really, really does not care about options. This WP 8 fro. HTC will turn no heads and add and very little to Sprints Line up. But I guess @Ruckus is correct: It is a start.
