HTC Fireball Gets WiFi Certification, But Just What in the Heck Is It?


Late last year, we heard of two phones called the LG Spectrum, which has been officially released, and the HTC Fireball, which we still know almost nothing about. We do know that it’ll have 4G LTE (what Verizon phone doesn’t these days?) and may have GSM radios for global use.

Today you can also add “WiFi” to that last, though I don’t think there was any doubt that we’d be missing out on that. The device has gotten its WiFi certification. The device’s model number, ADR6410LVW, is included to reassure us that this is the same device we heard about months ago.

But other than that, we still don’t know much. We expect it to have at least a dual-core processor. A screen above 4 inches might be a possibility. It might even come with Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4.0.

It could be the rumored HTC DROID Incredible 3 that we caught wind of last week. With as little information as we have, we can at least rest easy knowing that, with today’s certification, we’re inching closer and closer to more details. [via Wi-Fi.org, Thanks Joe!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    1. I was just going to say the same thing, but you beat me to it :P

  1. Ice Cream Sandwich AND Android 4.0?! Holy smokes I think I just creamed my roo’s

    1. It says Ice Cream and sandwich AND SENSE 4.0, not Android 4.0 :)

  2. Is anybody else sick of all of these Android phones from the same manufacturer that are so close to the same you wonder why they bothered making a different model?

    When it comes to the standard model smartphone (candybar, no keypad, one rectangular screen – 90% of smartphones) – why do they need so many?

    What’s wrong with a flagship model, a mid-range model and a budget model – with all 3 updated twice a year. And give them names to match!

    And then the carriers? Why do the carrier in the US get custom handsets with AT&T or Verizon written above the screen? Why can’t the GSM phone in Australia be the same as the GSM phone in the US?Maybe phones would get their damn updates a little faster if OEMs stopped releasing  new hardware that has no differentiation (I’m looking at you Galaxy Tab 2)!

    I know range, variety and choice are all important aspects of Android as an ecosystem, but this is ridiculous. Surely I’m not the only one?

  3. I dont see a power button on top, meaning it must be either worn out, flush or unpressable…this must be the thunderbolt 2!!!

    I kid I kid, I can say this because I own one.

    1. haha same thing with my tmo gs2. its really really flush wish it would stick out a tad more

  4. I think HTC is having 3 phones for each carrier a high range, mid, and Low each with their own name like the HTC one.

    1. World: HTC  One V, One S, One X
      Verizon is red : HTC Fireball(low), Vulcan(mid), Inferno(high)
      At&t  is blue: HTC  Aqua(low), Glacier(mid), Arctic(high)
      Sprint is Time: HTC Shift(low), Millennium(mid), Velocity(high)
      T-mobile is wind: HTC Current(low), Stream(mid), Storm(high)
      Is this what you meant?

  5. Thunderbolt 2?
