A new version of HTC’s 7″ tablet dubbed The HTC Flyer, was spotted late last week crossing the desks at the FCC. According to IntoMobile via Wireless Goodness, this new version of the HTC flyer was sporting T-Mobile’s 3G bands.
The T-Mobile version of the flyer, model number: PG41120 supports GSM 850, 1900 and T-Mobile’s WCDMA IV band. What it’s lacking is the bands for either version of T-Mobile’s HSPA+. This could mean that the Flyer headed to T-Mobile is only 3G.

This is pretty interesting because Sprint is always quick to point out that T-Mobile’s 4G isn’t really 4G. Late last year Sprint Communication’s Specialist Stephanie Vinge declared war on T-Mobile’s 4G via her personal twitter account, citing that T-Mobile didn’t have 4G. Of course many of us also feel that WiMax is no 4G either.
Needless to say it looks like the Flyer is headed to T-Mobile. 3G or 4G it will have some kind of G’s to go along with the wi-fis.
Over at Sprint, the HTC Flyer, called the HTC Evo View 4G, does come with 4G (WiMax) and will cost you $400 on a 2 year contract when it releases June 24th.
