FCC Tips Huawei as Next T-Mobile MyTouch Maker
Documents seen on the Federal Communications Commission web site point to Huawei as the hardware company that will create the next MyTouch smartphone for T-Mobile USA. The FCC recently approved the Huawei U8680 with support for the 850/1900MHz and AWS 1700MHz bands, which are the spectrum bands used by T-Mobile USA. Also, several of the documents published by the FCC refer to the U8680 as the "T-Mobile myTouch." HTC and LG have made MyTouch devices, which are historically Android smartphones, in the past.The FCC documents reveal little else, other than that the U8680 also supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Neither T-Mobile nor Huawei has announced this device.
