Itching to get a Windows Phone 7 device, but the current crop of devices doesn't pique your interest? Well, if you're on AT&T (or willing to switch), a pair of new WP7 handsets have passed through the FCC on their way to Ma Bell. First up is an HTC-made device with the model number PD29130, which many people believe is a version of the HD7 capable of being used on AT&T's 3G network. The model number is only one digit off from a device that passed the FCC on October 4th that is believed to be T-Mobile's HD7 (PD29110). Additionally, the two handsets have FCC ID labels that are exactly the same size and shape.
Also in the FCC recently was a device made by ASUS: the E600. Microsoft confirmed the company as a WP7 manufacturer back in July, but we have yet to see anything from them. As you can see in the image below, the FCC kindly included a photo of the phone itself as well as some of its accessories. The filing dates all the way back to April, and there are some rumors that this ASUS device won't actually be released to the public, but that it's a test for future models. If it does end up launching, though, it'll likely arrive on AT&T's shelves, so keep your fingers crossed.
The HD7 seems to be one of the more popular Windows Phone 7 launch devices, and I'm sure that there would be more than a few AT&T's customers that would pick up the device if it landed on their carrier of choice. It may not be a brand new device, but for this 4.3-inch monster, I'd be willing to overlook that. How many of you would do the same?
