HTC Mango Windows Phone Graces The Halls Of The FCC
We’ve heard of several names for future HTC Windows Phone devices, and at least a few of them should be materializing as we start to see more Mango hardware arrive. Earlier this month, two of them showed up with the Bluetooth SIG, the PI06XXX and PI39XXX varieties. While it was nice to see that some of those code names we heard of were becoming hardware tasked for release, we didn’t glean much out of the find. We’re still looking for more information on these smartphones, and as if to help us out, today the FCC published the certification paperwork for one such model, the HTC PI39110.
Knowing that model number will make identifying future information on the phone a little easier, but once again, this revelation still leaves us with a lot of questions about the smartphone. The FCC docs clearly mention that the PI39110 is a Windows Phone device; other than that, details are sparse. Maybe more telling than what’s here, though, is what’s not.
The FCC tested the phone for voice and 2G data on the 850 and 1900MHz bands used by AT&T in the States, but there’s no mention of any analysis of its 3G capabilities. Perhaps we’re looking at a quad-band GSM device that’s primarily going to be released in Europe/Asia, and so has the 3G bands to match? We could still see a similar model in the US, as another iteration under the PI39XXX banner, but the FCC has yet to spill the beans on any such model.
Update: This PI39XXX has shown up again, in the UAProf record for the TITAN X310e we just talked about. That would make this baby what we knew as the HTC Eternity.
