HTC Marvel Passes FCC With AWS Bands On Board

We’ve had the HTC Marvel marked down for a T-Mobile arrival since back in early May and now thanks to a recent FCC passing all signs point in the right direction. Listed only as model number PG76240 the device supports T-Mobile’s HSPA+ frequencies exactly as expected. Of course the FCC listing doesn’t give up much in the way of technical details but we anticipate an 800 Mhz snapdragon processor, 3.2″ screen. In other words, the Marvel is the HTC Wildfire S with T-Mobile branding. Any takers?

    Yeah, whats the code-name for that G2X gingerbread update? Sure would be nice if someone could figure that out. I feel like this is just a cruel joke and I would really appreciate for LG and Magenta to get off there ass and make something happen, some time preferably before the G3X comes out.

    Marvel?   They should call it Wonder…  as in I wonder why they would make a puny phone like that?!

    The number one selling device on tmobile right now is the Optimus T. So whether or not you would buy a phone like this is irrevelant. HTC currently has no entry level devices on TMobile and they want into that market, and I for one think its a great move. Not everyone wants a dual core beast. I do, but more customers buy the Optimus than the sensation right now, so why not get into that action too. Good move HTC!

      I bought a used Optimus T for use as an “interim phone” when I sold my Vibrant and was considering what next superphone to buy. I bought it on eBay for $120. 

      IMHO the Optimus T is a fantastic phone, especially for the price.  I think that the reason the Optimus T is selling well is because: 1) the price; 2) it’s an Android phone; 3) it’s quite attractive; and 4) it feels great and operates quite nicely.

      The drum I keep beating is that because of the tanked economy people are not opting for a $200 to $250 superphone when upgrading, as you allude.  To be sure, if a father is buying two to three lines for the family, three to four Optimus T type handsets is far more bearable than paying $800 for top-of-the-line phones ($1000 when including sales tax and delivery charges).

      Note:  The Optimus T comes with Android 2.2, but it is NOT capable of playing Adobe Flash.  So if going on websites playing flash video you see black screens, a red X, or a message that “your phone is not capable of playing flash video.”

    il stick with my Optimus T thank you

  • DetroitTechnoFan

    WOW… for all the comparisons of this to the Optimus, it even looks almost identical to the Optimus!

    wow, everyone is hating on this….lol

    However, there is a market for this.

  • Andy

    Another crappy Android phone for T-Mobile! Yay!

  • big

    There is a HUGE market for entry level android phones, and honestly, Tmobile is the only real player in the game. QUALITY entry level phones, I should say. You go to Sprint for what, that Kyocera thing? Maybe the EVO Shift? AT&T got that Facebook small HTC. Really, Tmo is the only ones who stuck their necks out with entry level Androids besides pre-paid companies. Not everyone understands, needs, wants, or can use top level super phones. Everyone forgets the posters on this board are the sliiiiiiiim minority of phone purchasing customers.
