The GCF (Global Certification Forum) just approved and unveiled a so far unannounced HTC (Windows Mobile) smartphone, the XV6175. According to the GCF, the XV6175 supports quadband GSM at 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz but not WCDMA (UMTS/HSPA).
What's somewhat irritating here is the fact that typically, XV is sued for Verizon Wireless smartphones however Verizon Wireless is running a CDMA network in the U.S., not a GSM network. However, this might prove earlier rumors that HTC is working on a world-phone which also supports GSM in addition to CDMA.

Further information aren't available at this time, it's even unknown which operating system the XV6175 runs but it's most likely Windows Mobile, I don't expect Verizon Wireless' first Android smartphone will be a GSM world-phone at all.

Cheers ~ Arne
