HTC EVO 3D With T-Mobile Bands Revealed at FCC?

After landing at Sprint in the US last week, HTC’s EVO 3D is ready to take on the world; a GSM model of the Android smartphone will let users around the globe get online with this no-glasses-required 3D handset. A version of the phone recently saw its paperwork published at the FCC, and while it’s definitely a GSM-sporting EVO 3D, it may not be that international version we’re looking at.

Unlike the WiMAX-equipped HTC EVO 3D that graces Sprint’s network, this EVO 3D is outfitted with GSM bands. Employing 850 and 1900MHz for voice, and 1700MHz for WCDMA data, it’s very likely we’re looking at a model that’s destined for operation on T-Mobile (while possible, it would be unlikely to see an AWS device debut in Canada alone).

We weren’t expecting to see another US carrier get the EVO 3D like this, but it makes a degree of sense. If 3D smartphones end up being the next big thing, all the providers are going to want at least one in their stables. Sprint’s taken care of, and AT&T’s getting the Thrill 4G, so maybe Verizon and T-Mobile are starting to get a bit nervous that they’ll be left out.
