While Android-craving Verizon subscribers continue to wait impatiently for official word of Motorola’s VZW-bound Android phone, it looks as though Big Red could be preparing to announce the HTC Desire just as soon. We’ve already seen the mysterious handset allegedly pop up in Verizon’s system and now more good news for the eager legions of Android hopefuls: the HTC Desire, a.k.a. ADR6200 or ADR6200VW, has not only received a nod of approval from the FCC, it has also gained Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. A diligent and resourceful tipster just dropped word of both in our inbox and now that these approval processes are out of the way, it’s only a matter of time. Considering news finally came today that the Sholes is FCC approved as well, perhaps VZW is preparing an Android spectacular of sorts. We’d love nothing more, Verizon.

Thanks, Scott!
