It looks like Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9” 4G LTE just passed through the FCC
Amazon passed its current lineup of eBook readers through the FCC using a host of shell companies, including Hannaford LLC and Harpers LLC. These shell companies were located across the United States and each had an address that corresponded to a location of Corporation Service Company (CSC), a provider of entity services.
Yesterday, a company called Elk LLC passed a “Tablet PC” through the FCC. Elk LLC’s address is listed as Suite 100, 2730 Gateway Oaks Drive, Sacramento, CA. A quick Google search of this address shows that it is a location for Corporation Service Company, making Elk another likely shell for Amazon.
Elk’s FCC filing shows a tablet that supports GSM band 850/1900, WCDMA bands II and V and LTE bands 4 and 17. These GSM and WCDMA bands correspond to AT&T’s service in the United States, while LTE band 4 is used by AT&T as well. These FCC filings suggest that Elk’s tablet, which bears the model number 3HT7G, is Amazon’s LTE tablet, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9” 4G LTE.
Elk’s FCC filings don’t reveal much else about the Kindle Fire HD 8.9” 4G LTE than is already known. Unfortunately, all internal and external photos of the 3HT7G are confidential. You can check out Elk’s FCC filings for yourself here.
