AT&T, Rogers Getting Motorola Droid? [FCC]

The Motorola Droid Tao/Sholes has passed the FCC two times already – the first time for CDMA (Verizon) the 2nd time for GSM (Europe) and now it looks as if AT&T and Rogers friendly GSM bands come with the goods. Don’t take my¬† word for it… but I wouldn’t argue with the FCC:


I wouldn’t expect this to hit AT&T any time soon… and maybe ever. This may just be a Canadian Rogers thing with Verizon getting the American exclusive, but that doesn’t mean its impossible or that you could snag it unlocked. Anyways, more Droid in more places makes everyone happy.

Am I wrong? Am I wrong? No Walter you’re not wrong you’re just… an Apple!

    this is a welcoming news. although i wouldn’t trust anything on AT&T’s 3G network.

  • Aerimus

    could it be the non-keyboard one we’ve been hearing about?

    Come on guys, both Telus and Bell are launching an HSDPA network the first week of November. It’s not as simple as GSM=Rogers in Canada anymore.

    As a canadian, all I can say is SWEET! That is the best news about the droid that came since a while (and we all know a lot of good news about the droid came recently). I had hopes since the european GSM article, and I’m so buying this if it comes to rogers (or if this version comes out unlocked of course).

  • kidphat

    Anyone know what the turnaround usually is from FCC filing to actual product? I am eligible for an upgrade but I am eying the Verizon Droid.

  • JAG

    I wanna get the GSM version

  • Steve

    Any news on launch dates of the European version?

  • Safi

    @Rod Really? Because I’m so sick of Rogers getting all the phones in Canada (iPhone and the country’s only two Android phone, HTC Dream and Magic, AAAAARRRRRRGGGHHHH!)

    I wonder if that means we should get ready for more Android phones in the norht…

  • therealsybarite

    HSDPA or not GSM so GSM still = rogers in Canada. But since they’ve got versions of this phone in CDMA and GMS, it could go to either Bell or Rogers. in a perfect world to both but we know that won’t happen.
