HTC Hero, Whitestone clear FCC

Crave gives you the details on recent cell phone filings with the FCC.

Hello to the Hero. HTC

August may be a slow month for news, but it's not a slow period for new cell phones at the Federal Communications Commission. This week we saw a CDMA HTC Hero (Sprint, anyone?) and Whitestone, the LG GD900 Crystal, the Samsung Jalou , and the return of the Sony Ericsson Satio.

Because the FCC has to certify every phone sold in the United States, not to mention test its SAR rating, the agency's online database offers a lot of sneak peeks to those who dig. And to save you the trouble, Crave has combed through the database for you. Here are a selection of filings from the past week on new and upcoming cell phones. Click through to read the full report.
