New HTC smartphone with 4G WiMAX clears the FCC

A new HTC phone with WiMAX support was spotted on the FCC’s site with the model number PG06100. We don’t know which smartphone this is, but the model number resembles the HTC EVO 4G which used PC36100.

HTC recently trademarked the name EVO Shift 4G and many are speculating this device will be Sprint’s 4G WiMAX version of the HTC Desire Z. The FCC documents specifically mentions different configurations like “slide off” and “slide right”, so it appears this device includes a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Basically, it sounds like a T-Mobile G2, but with Sense UI instead of stock Android and Sprint 4G WiMAX instead of T-Mobile 4G HSPA+.

Several of the FCC documents were dated September 20th, so this phone has been in testing awhile. How does an EVO Shift 4G on Sprint before Christmas sound to anyone?
