AT&T Fuze spotted at FCC
AT&T’s version of the HTC Touch Pro is pretty much an open secret, and spotting the device on the FCC database is just the final part of this Smartphone’s trudge to release. It is however the last step that needs to be in place before the device can be sold to the general public.
The FCC documents show that the handset in question bears the “Raphael” model name, which you may recall as HTC’s codename for the HTC Touch Pro. And, the mention of support for HSPA on the 850Mhz and 1900Mhz makes it safe to assume that this here handset is the AT&T Fuze.
One small disappointment in the FCC documentation is that no mention of triband UMTS is apparent, meaning this phone may be a dual-band UMTS device after all, with no European 3G.
Although, we’ve been expecting AT&T to go live with their AT&T Fuze, and this latest thumbs-up from the FCC bodes well for a near-term release – hopefully before the year’s out.
With a little luck, we’ll be able to play with the HTC Touch Pro at CTIA. Stay tuned…
