The HTC PG58100 (also known as the HTC Sensation) has officially cleared the FCC, making it legal to sell in the United States, which is good, because T-Mobile totally is going to sell it in the United States. Other documents at the FCC show that both front and rear cameras exist, as well as the standard Wifi and Bluetooth radios, which, of course, the Sensation (and just about every other new phone) has. This doesn't mean we'll be seeing it on the store shelves any time soon -- that part's up to the carriers.
There's some confusion out there about the PG58100 being the HTC Doubleshot (aka the MyTouch 4G Slide). It's not. We're talking two different phones here. The phone that just passed the FCC today is the HTC Sensation, according to the model number. The Doubleshot's leaked files show it to have PG59100 as it's model number, and there's no record of that one at the FCC just yet. The confusion is understandable considering the sheer numbers of Android phones and the cryptic code names they all use. (Just ask Phil; he mutters them in his sleep. Or so I'm told.)
