The folks over at the FCC might want to do a double take on the latest HP Pre 3 that has arrived at their doorsteps – after all, they have seen it in the past before just last month, so to have a similar device arrive so soon might leave some feeling puzzled. The HP Pre 3 that is sent there this time around is slightly different from the previous one that supported just GSM 850/1900 and WCDMA bands II and V, as this model will offer a broader range of support including CDMA/EvDO bands 850/1900, GSM bands 850/900/1800/1900, and UMTS bands 900/2100.
For those who are interested in model numbers, this particular version of the Pre 3 will be known as the HSTNH-F30CV, and according to previous leaks, Verizon Wireless will be the carrier behind this smartphone. After all, support for CDMA/EvDO, GSM and UMTS standards translates to this being practically a world phone.
While Verizon has yet to make any official announcement concerning the HP Pre 3, we won’t be surprised to see them add on to their stable of world phones which previously were limited to Android and BlackBerry operating systems. Might as well complete the collection with webOS, no?
