The HTC PB31200 made an appearance on the FCC today. The device sports CDMA/CDMA2000 850/1900 bands, suggesting a launch on Verizon or Sprint. FCC filings also show 802.11 b/g WiFi and Bluetooth.
Other than that, we don’t have much else to go on. We don’t think this is a version of the Nexus One for Verizon, since test reports show that the PB31200 uses a different battery than GSM versions of the Nexus One. It is possible that the PB31200 is the HTC Incredible, although this would be purely wishful thinking on our part.
We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
Palm formally announced the Palm Pre Plus last week at CES. Among other things, the device will feature 16GB of memory and a standard induction charging cover.
Today, it appears that the device made an appearance on the FCC as the P101EWW. The Permissive change notice from Palm (above) mentions an increase in storage from 8 GB to 16 GB, and an increase in RAM from 256 MB to 512 MB. Both of these specs are in line with announced specs for the Pre Plus.
Additionally, the description of the P101EWW’s operation (below) mentions a sliding mechanism, confirming that this device is of the Pre ilk, not the Pixi.
Other specs in the test report confirm support for CDMA/EVDO, as well as 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth.
This filing confirms that the Pre Plus is indeed on its way, and on track for the announced January 25th release date.
LG passed their MT310 AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) phone through the FCC a few days ago, and today they followed up with two more AWS devices: the MN240 and LW240. Typical of LG, today’s filings don’t provide us with much info. However, we do know the devices will support 850/1900 GSM and CDMA, as well as AWS CDMA. Support for both CDMA and GSM make this a versatile phone for the US. Although since only CDMA AWS is supported, it’s likely that this device will end up on Verizon.
Over the past year, several AWS (Advanced Wireless Service) phones have been rolling out to carriers across the US. Today, the MT310 mobile phone from LG passed through the FCC, boasting support for AWS and 850/1900 CDMA bands.
According to the MT310’s test report, the device will feature a camera, Bluetooth, MP3 Player and GPS – but that’s about all we know about the device.
We’re guessing that the MT310 will be released for Verizon, since it supports 850/1900 CDMA bands. The only other carriers that operate on these bands in the US are Sprint and Alltel, both of which didn’t win any AWS spectrum.
No word on pricing or a release date, but we’ll keep you updated as we learn more about the MT310.
Samsung passed their SCH-i225 mobile phone through the FCC today. This is a CDMA/EVDO device with Bluetooth, and if the information phone number on the label of the SCH-i225 is any indication, this device will be sold in the US.
There’s not much more information in the FCC filing, although we do get an idea of the SCH-i225’s form factor from the label placement pics above.
