HTC Dream from FCC documents

Well, the cat has been let out of the bag, it seems. HTC’s Dream has popped up on the FCC’s website, and it appears to support 3G connectivity on the 1700MHz AWS band that T-Mobile has just recently started rolling out in the USA. As Engadget has also pointed out, a phone with the same DREA100 product name received WiFi certification as well.

Details are still light, and there are no external photos of the device that we can scan for branding, but it does appear to be safe to say that the Dream will be a quad-band GSM/EDGE smartphone that supports UMTS (WCDMA) 3G on the 1700MHz band used by T-Mobile. Other features include WiFi, Bluetooth, and a “jogball” navigation device that would appear to be similar to the trackball used on the Sidekicks and BlackBerry devices.
