HTC Nexus One Receives the FCC Blessing
Remember the Google Phone aka Nexus One, we’ve seen pictured over the past days? Now it turns out that the FCC approved it as model number PB99100, built by HTC. This Android 2.1 is confirmed to pack a microSD card slot, support for 802.11 b/g WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.
Also, we learn that the device supports quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSUPA, plus it’ll be able to do 2Mbps upload and 7.2Mbps download thanks to its 3G capabilities. We remind you that Nexus One will be sold unlocked, hopefully for a reasonable price. The latest documents published by the FCC show that this phone will support HSPA 900/1700/210 connectivity plus quadband EDGE.
What does this mean? It’s “bye bye” Google Phone for AT&T and good news for T-Mobile USA.
