Another phone snuck its way into the FCC records, recently. Chinese-bred Commtiva has cooked up a new Android handset – called the Blaze – and it appears to be carrying T-Mobile’s 3G bands. According to CellPhone Signal, the phone is set to launch for regional carrier Cincinnati Bell, who uses the same bands T-Mobile does.

No processor, storage, or RAM/ROM information yet, but it will ship with Android 1.6, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, a 5-megapixel camera and WiFi. It’s unlikely that we’ll see this thing launch for T-Mobile, but if this phone interests you and you’re a T-Mobile customer (or you don’t have Cincinnati Bell support where you are), you can keep hope alive that you’ll be able to use it whenever it launches.
