Some new entries in the FCC database reveal a pair of HTC devices going through the certification process. This is good news for Nexus fans as some of the supporting documentation indicates the devices are the upcoming Nexus devices from Google that should be launching soon.
The item that gives away the fact that these devices are the new Nexus smartphones is a paragraph in a letter outlining the draft user guide that was included in the FCC submission. In that letter, HTC provides a Google Nexus URL as the public website where both the draft and final versions of the user guide will be made available once the phones are released for purchase by the public.
The model numbers provided in the FCC entries are NM8G-2PW2100 and G-2PW4100. Sources think the first one of those two is the smaller device, codenamed Sailfish, while the larger Marlin corresponds to the second model number.
Some more good news regarding the filings was discovered in the cellular testing information. That data indicates the phones will be compatible with all of the major US carriers. This should help the devices sell a little better if potential buyers can more easily elect to stay with a carrier that they like, notably Verizon.
