Documents seen on the FCC site provide a few details about the newly approved HTC Dream. The documents confirm that it will have quad-band GSM/EDGE radios, WCDMA 1700, Bluetooth and WiFi. That the phone supports the 1700 MHz band earmarks it for T-Mobile. HTC and T-Mobile have both recently confirmed to the press that they will be releasing a new phone based on Google's Android platform by the end of the year. The timing of this approval lends credence to rumors that the HTC Dream will run Android, though the FCC documents themselves to not mention this. Other nuggets spotted in the documents mention a camera of unknown quality and a slot for microSD cards. The Dream will be a slider phone, and will include a jog ball. No pictures of the device were available.

This plus the samsung tocco is awesome.

Finally, some good phones to coincide with the start of T-Mobile 3G. I read somewhere that T-Mobile is gonna have the fastest HSDPA on the continent when it opens up in like 30 markets. (7.2Mbps http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Mobile-and-Wireless/ TMobile-Moves-to-3G/). If that's true, plus the Android and Samsung tocco being hsdpa, this would be perfect by the time i switch. good thing to wait for.
7.2bps. air cards maybe. phones definitely no. 1.6bps at best. which is still very good. Tmo fans will absolutely love it. I am waiting for WiMax. HTC (supposedly) relesing phone late next year with sprint wimax chip. Awesome!
Um... that article you read is 2 years old and pretty much completely out of date.

AT&T already has HSPA 7.2 in operation, and claims that they will have 350 markets covered by the end of the year.
other than T919 and G1
SE will supply AWS version of W760
then later 4 months lineup is better
I was so happy to see someone list proof of this faster 3G, and the link doesnt work...

Finally a T-Mobile phone you can be proud to own...possibly

I might actually stop using my unlocked iPhone for this. It'll be nice to be able to show customers the phone im using when they ask. Kinda hard to sell them t-mobile service when the rep there is using an iPhone I swear to god if either T-Mobile, HTC or Google screw this up...
