"The UMTS frequencies are 900 MHz and 2100 MHz, which are the bands supported by pretty much every GSM network in the world, save AT&T. "
New HP Pre 3 hits the FCC with world phone capabilities, including CDMA, EvDO, GSM support |
The HP Pre 3 first hit the FCC back in April with support for GSM 850/1900 and WCDMA bands II and V. At the time, the device looked like it would only be released for AT&T in the United States, but today a new version of the Pre 3 hit the FCC, this time with broad support for CDMA/EvDO bands 850/1900, GSM bands 850/900/1800/1900, and UMTS bands 900/2100, pictured above.
This version of the Pre 3 is known as the HSTNH-F30CV, and based on previous leaks (thanks Pre Central) we’re guessing that the device will be headed to Verizon. Additionally, support for CDMA/EvDO, GSM and UMTS standards means you’ll be able to use this version of the Pre 3 pretty much anywhere in the world.
Verizon still hasn’t officially announced the Pre 3, but based on today’s FCC filing it looks like the device should be unveiled soon. Verizon already has a solid stable of world phones, including Android and BlackBerry devices. The Pre 3 world phone will be a welcome addition to Verizon’s global lineup.
