T-Mobile USA appears to be working on a new smartphone called ‘Prism’, according to several new domain registrations this week that include names like tmobileprism.com and t-mobileprism.com.

Though a new device is only speculation, the company’s IP counsel registered the domain names through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor, on November 21, 2011, but as of yet, hasn’t officially announced any plans for the device.

T-Mobile USA originally filed for the Prism trademark back in 2009 and has had three extensions granted since that time.  In 2009, Prism was one of many names being considering for its second Android phone, which was eventually marketed as the T-Mobile myTouch 3G in the United States.

The goods and services in the 2009 filing cover, “wireless handheld telecommunications devices, namely, wireless telecommunications devices that combine wireless voice and data telecommunications functions, digital imaging functions, computing functions, permit the two-way wireless transmission of e-mail and text, permit wireless access to a global computer network, gaming and multimedia functionality.” 

The list of new domain registrations include:

t-mobileprism.com
t-mobileprism.net
t-mobileprism.biz
t-mobileprism.org
t-mobileprism.us
tmobileprism.biz
tmobileprism.org
tmobileprism.us
