The FCC is giving their standard once-over to HTC’s latest submission: the PG86300. This should look pretty familiar, as it’s simply a variation of the EVO 3D. The 86300 uses radios that we’ve already seen on the European rendition, and once they get FCC approval, we’ll have the beefed up EVO 3D for the taking. T-Mobile’s gotta love this kind of push, and there’s no doubt that the EVO 3D is already getting some market love.
The difference between the European rendition and what we’ve been seeing in the States already is the Tri-band 3G radio and quad-band 2G radio. Basically, you’ll start seeing unlocked European models in the states right about….now.
The FCC reviews every product before clearing it for American release because they want to make sure that you aren’t going to turn into a zombie for using the device. While the jury is still out on that one, we’re definitely willing to take the risk! So, do you think that the improved radio technology will make much of a difference when it comes to the sales of the EVO 3D? Honestly, the market probably won’t care about these kinds of specs until the 3D smartphone craze wears off.
