HTC PB92300 Passes FCC, Hints at Aria-Like Handset
HTC has just gotten FCC approval for a smartphone whose ID label is shaped and colored to seemingly match the company’s Android-powered Aria handset almost perfectly. However, since the Aria has already been released by AT&T, the so-called PB92300 is most likely not the same phone — although the Aria’s model number was the alphanumerically-similar PB92110, leading to speculation that this may simply be the HTC Gratia, a nearly-identical European model. Since most of PB93200’s specs are cloaked in confidentiality, all we can say for certain is that it supports AT&T’s GSM (but not necessarily 3G) bands, and is equipped with both WiFi and Bluetooth radios. There are also indications of a second, front-facing camera, although the documents don’t make that completely clear.
The Aria is a solid, mid-range, Eclair-powered handset with 600MHz processor and 3.2-inch HVGA display. It retails for $130 with two-year contract.
