HTC’s Desire HD gets FCC nod with North American 3G bands; coming to Telus

Earlier today, HTC’s Desire HD crossed the FCC’s desk with a welcomed surprise, North American 3G bands. The 4.3-inch device — which boasts a 1GHz processor, 720p video recording, Android 2.2, and much more — is rocking WCDMA bands II and V, which makes AT&T, Bell, Telus, and Rogers all potential suitors.

Shortly after the news broke, a trusted BGR source came forward and stated that the device will definitely be hitting Canadian carrier Telus — an assertion blog Engadget also echoed. Our source indicated that they have physically seen a Telus branded Desire HD, running on Telus’ network, in the hands of a company representative. No word on when we could see this device officially come to market, but we’ll keep digging.

We’re happy for Telus customers and all, but wouldn’t this thing look extra sexy with a Death Star logo on it?

Dell Venue Pro with AT&T 3G gets FCC approval

Dell is having a hard time getting its T-Mobile compliant Windows Phone 7 handset — the Venue Pro – shipped in time for the holidays, but that hasn’t stopped the company from sending at second iteration of the device to the FCC for approval. A Venue Pro sporting WCDMA bands II and V — AT&T’s 850MHz and 1900MHz 3G bands — has crossed the government agency’s desk. If you’re an AT&T, Bell, Rogers, or Telus customer, and fancy the vertical-sliding device, this is encouraging news. While FCC approval doesn’t guarantee a release, it is certainly a step in the right direction. Any customers of the aforementioned carriers interested in the Venue Pro?

BlackBerry Bold 9780 coming to AT&T, Bell, Telus, Rogers?

Blog driphter.com has new images of the unreleased BlackBerry Bold 9780 equipped with 3G bands 1, 2, 5, and 6. The bands operate on the 800 MHz, 850 MHz, 1900 MHz, and 2100 MHz spectrums and are what the folks over at AT&T use on their network. Previously, the device had only been seen with bands 1, 4 and 8, indicating that the device was potentially headed to T-Mobile USA. In light of this new discovery it looks like versions of the 9780 could hit T-Mobile, AT&T, Bell Mobility, Telus, and Rogers if RIM so chooses. Anyone out there prefer this more familiar form factor to that of the new Torch 9800? More →
