HTC EVO 4G Approved by FCC

Although this maybe no surprise, it’s still good to hear that the FCC have approved the HTC EVO 4G for sale saying it complies with all technical requirements.

The HTC EVO 4G is the first phone that works on the 2500 MHz band from the Sprint/Clearwire network. What this means is that the EVO 4G will be capable of downloading data at around 10 times faster than current 3G devices. Of course this number depends on a lot of things such as Clearwire coverage in the area you are and also the conditions you are using the phone. If you manage to get full speed out of it, you’ll have some seriously quick downloading on your device.

The FCC filing also included the EVO 4Gs model number which is indicated as being the HTC PC36100 for those who are interested in that sort of thing.

When launched the phone is expected to cost $200 on contract. No official dates have been revealed just yet although you can expect dates to be provided with in the next week or so whereby full details of pricing plans and where you can buy it will be revealed. We have heard that pre-ordering will start this month though with a tentative launch date of early next month.
