HTC Desire FCC

The Federal Communications Commission has rather busy today, and now we've got another hot device passing through the agency for you.  The HTC Desire, which is already going to hit U.S. Cellular this year, just passed through the FCC with North American 3G bands (WCDMA I, II, and V) on board.  This is notable because these are the same bands that AT&T uses for its 3G, meaning this Desire is compatible with AT&T's 3G network.  We've heard in the past that a version of the Desire would be heading to Telus up in Canada, and what we're looking at is probably that device.  Still, AT&T has been drinking more of the Android Kool-Aid as of late, so it's entirely possible that we could see AT&T release its own Desire at some point in the future.  Until then, those customers that can't control their desire for this handset can order a model from Canada whenever it finally launches, and it will be compatible with AT&T's 3G network.

AT&T owners already have access to the Nexus One, so it's kind of disappointing to see an AT&T-capable Desire launching in Canada.  Sure, the Desire is a great handset, but it's pretty similar to the Nexus.  I would love to see a new and different device along the lines of an HTC EVO or Motorola DROID X launch with compatibility with AT&T.  It would be even better to see AT&T launch its own high-end Android phone.  I'm sure that the Android fans on the carrier are getting tired of having to import high-end devices from Canada or paying full retail from Google.  Sure, the Samsung Captivate is coming, but not everyone wants a skinned version of Android, AT&T!
