With all the news, rumors and leaks regarding the Motorola Sholes/Tao, you may have missed an important note regarding HTC and Verizon Wireless. The HTC Desire, HTC Passion and HTC Predator are all Android Phones poised to launch on Big Red this holiday season. Little to nothing is known about them but that will all change very soon and right now we’re getting our first doses of disclosure – the HTC Desire just passed the FCC and got its Wi-Fi certification (PDF)!

None of the documents are particularly revealing, but they do provide reassurance to Verizon customers eagerly awaiting Android that they’ll have some options. HTC wrapped up confidentiality on External Photos, Internal Photos, Test Setup Photos and User Manual that last through December 31st, 2009 ensuring that we’re left with very little to nibble on. Check out how hilariously unrevealing the FCC label on the battery is:


Don’t let the document confuse you… the HTC Desire is not just a series of 2D rectangles and it IS an actual phone – we promise. And the little label on the battery might look a little something like this:


Meanwhile the Wi-Fi certification is equally as informing… pretty much only revealing that the phone has Wi-Fi:


The Verizon Wireless Android scene is really starting to pick up steam as the Motorola Sholes aka Motorola Tao also got FCC approval today. Now we’re awaiting leaks/rumors, an official announcement and of course more info on the Passion and Predator! Keep pumping out the good stuff VZW!
