HTC PD53100 Hits the FCC, Could Be the Brew-Based F8181

Labels: , , , , , ,

Something a bit interesting has just hit the FCC and it's the HTC PD53100. Engadget believes that the handset in question is the Qualcomm Brew-based F8181 handset that will be going to AT&T sometime in the future. This handset will be a decent addition to AT&T's mid-end phone line-up because Brew-based handsets are pretty rare in this day and age.
