FCC tests show Moto Droid with 3G for AT&T, Canada

updated 11:05 am EDT, Sat October 24, 2009

2nd Moto Droid works with N. Amer. HSPA

An FCC filing discovered late Friday has confirmed that the Motorola Droid won't be limited only to a CDMA version. The US agency's tests show it running WCDMA, the foundation for HSPA-based 3G access, on the 850MHz and 1,900MHz bands that are used both by AT&T in the US as well as Bell, Rogers and Telus in Canada. Many Latin American carriers also use the standards.

The examination also points to requisite support for GSM and EDGE as well as Bluetooth and 802.11g Wi-Fi.

None of the filing provides a sign of when or in which areas the HSPA-capable Droid would run; many devices pass through the FCC only to be certified as usable in the US. As Verizon is likely to have at least a short-term exclusive for the Android-based phone, it's more likely that the device is one intended for Canada or the rest of the Americas.
