HTC Desire gains Wi-Fi certification and FCC approval -
Last week we received news that HTC and Verizon were working on launch details for three new Android powered phones. At the time, all we knew was that there were three code names floating around the internet. Today, we have confirmation from the W-Fi alliance and the FCC that at least the HTC Desire is a real phone with a CDMA radio chipset. Unfortunately the only real new news we have from this is the product number on the label: PB00100. That is all we have to go off of for right now. We aren’t even able to confirm that the HTC Desire is an Android powered phone. Speculation indicated that the HTC Desire could show up on the Verizon network by the end of October. It’s been nearly a year since T-Mobile launched the G1. It’s nice to finally see other networks supporting the Android platform and giving consumers an open market.
