HTC PC10100 Enters FCC, Featuring AWS 3G and HSPA+

Rumors about the HTC Glacier, an exceptionally powerful device featuring T-Mobile's HSPA+, began a few weeks back, and despite there not being much more information about the device since then, it's never left our mind. Now, thanks to Engadget, there's a new AWS-equipped device making its short-term home within the FCC right now. Questions immediately arose from the specifications garnered from that listing. Is this the Glacier, or is it the already well-known G2?

HSPA+ T-Mobile G2 teaser site launches

T-Mobile has launched a new teaser site for their latest Android smartphone, the T-Mobile G2 with Google.  The first HSPA+ capable smartphone to their network, details on the G2 are in short supply right now; only a vague outline of the handset has been shown, though we have heard various rumors about different T-Mobile devices in the past. That includes the T-Mobile G1 Blaze (aka the HTC Vision), a slider-QWERTY handset made by HTC and that would certainly fit in with the carrier's comments that the G2 is the "successor" of the original G1.  However, we've also heard talk of the T-Mobile myTouch HD, a large-screen version of the keyboard-free myTouch 3G. Both are believed to be part of T-Mobile's Project Emerald.  The carrier says it will release more information on the T-Mobiel G2 in the coming weeks, with existing subscribers getting early access to the Android handset.

HTC myTouch 3G HD Breaks Cover

There's a lot of speculation going on right now, about whether or not T-Mobile's first HSPA+ device is going to be. And, while their teaser site has Vanguard written all over it (a phone manufactured by HTC, mind you), it looks like a new tipster speaking with Android Central says otherwise. In fact, it looks like it will still be an HTC-based device, but definitely not the Vanguard.

HTC Vision caught with T-Mobile branding; will launch as G1 Blaze?

A new image of the HTC Vision - in which the Android smartphone is T-Mobile branded - has leaked, with Engadget's tipster suggesting that the handset may launch as the G1 Blaze.  The QWERTY Android phone supposedly has a 1GHz processor and 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen. Right now we don't know whether the Vision/G1 Blaze is intended for the US, Europe or both; last we heard, though, T-Mobile USA were looking at it for a September 2010 launch as their first HSPA+ smartphone.  That would make it the fastest wireless device on their network.
