HTC Flyer T-Mobile version gets FCC testing
Plans to bring the HTC Flyer to T-Mobile in the US grew more concrete this week after an FCC filing virtually confirmed its existence. The Android slate has gone through testing on the 1,700MHz band needed to get HSPA 3G and HSPA+ '4G' on the American carrier's network. Little else has changed in the seven-inch tablet, which runs on a 1.5GHz single-core Snapdragon and loads both five-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras.
The approval leaves a wide but specific window for when the Flyer would arrive. Rumors have suggested it could be as early as July 6. HTC's confidentiality request, though, asks that most of the tablet's documents be kept secret until October 19. A Sprint equivalent, the Evo View 4G, is due June 24. [via Engadget]
