Finally the HTC Himalaya PPCPE 2003 better known as O2 xda II or T-Mobile MDA II received the FCC approval. This is required to sell an electronic device in the US and furthermore it's an important step to get i released there.
Devices without approval can not be sold nor imported into the US.
Now I wonder which US carrier will pick it up first - might be T-Mobile since they will launch it in Europe as well, might be another one but for sure it have to be a GSM carrier like T-Mobile or Cingular since the Himalya is a GSM device, not a CDMA device at all (today).
