A mysterious device from HTC called the PB99110 passed through the FCC today, after being spotted on the WiFi Alliance site last month. The device offers support for quad-band GSM and WCDMA bands I, II and V, along with Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g WiFi. However, other than those specs today’s FCC filings don’t tell us much.
HTC’s 2010 product roadmap gives us some idea of what this device may be. But without further info, we’re left guessing for the moment.
Motorola’s Motus mobile phone made another appearance on the FCC today. According to test reports, the Motus, which is also known as the Backflip and Enzo, will feature quad-band GSM, 900/1900/2100 WCDMA, b/g WiFi, and Bluetooth.
FCC filings for the Motus don’t revel much else, but previously leaked specs reveal that the Motus will run Android and rock a 528 MHz processor, 3.1” display and 5 MP camera. The device also has an odd reverse hinge, which flips the keyboard behind the screen so the keys are exposed.
The Motus will be offered by AT&T, although a release date and pricing is not yet available.
The FCC filing from ASUS, above, reveals a PDA phone with the model 0100084. Interestingly, the brand for this device is listed as ‘NA’ in FCC filings, and the FCC label for the 0100084 does not show any brand, either. This suggests that ASUS is the OEM manufacturer for the 0100084, and the phone will likely be re-branded when it is released.
The test report for the 0100084 reveals support for 850/1900 GSM and WCDMA Band IV. These frequencies correspond to T-Mobile’s service in the United States, indicating that the 0100084 may be a new smartphone for T-mobile.
Other than that, we don’t have much to go on. If reports that the Nexus One will be released for T-Mobile are correct, then it appears that T-mobile will be making a big smartphone push in 2010.
