T-Mobile HTC Magic clears FCC

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

The Magic might be on its way to T-Mobile. HTC Magic

A few versions of the HTC Magic won certification from the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday. Though another version of the phone passed through the FCC last month , it was not certified for U.S. 3G networks. Yet this newest Magic model supports the 3G AWS bands of T-Mobile. Could T-Mobile get its secondGoogle Android phone in the next couple of months? It would seem that way.

Besides the Magic, two Acer smartphones and a slew of Samsungs (tear off the front page) were approved as well. 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.
