Earlier this month, Sprint announced they would begin to offer Windows Phone 8 devices on its platform from smartphone manufacturers Samsung and HTC that would be considered “current“ phones. The month isn’t even over yet and we’re starting to hear about one of the first Windows 8 devices hitting the FCC, and it’s from one of the manufacturers Sprint announced earlier this month, HTC.
The HTC PL80110 has already made its way through the FCC approval process and, even though details on the HTC-made Windows Phone 8 device are scarce at this point, we do know this is certainly a Windows Phone 8 phone made for Sprint due to its use of band 25 LTE, which is a frequency specific to Sprint. Other than that, it looks like we can expect NFC to be available with HTC’s Windows Phone 8 device.
If you’re a Sprint subscriber who has been wanting a taste of the Windows Phone 8 experience, due to this device passing through the FCC, we wouldn’t be surprised if we hear more about it at MWCnext month.
