ATT’s HTC Touch Pro2 has many names, one FCC approval

Call it the HTC Rhodium, call it the HTC Fortress, call it the HTC Touch Pro2 or whatever else you like — the bottom line is the AT&T version of this sexy Windows Mobile handset has just received a green flag from the FCC and we want it now. Proving that big really is beautiful, the Pro2 is probably one of the most attractive Windows Mobile phone that has ever been built in every sense of the word. The giant 3.6-inch sliding/pivoting touchscreen display, the spacious QWERTY keypad, the TouchFLO 3D UI… It’s all good. Now that big momma has the green light from the FCC and presuming internal testing it on schedule, it shouldn’t be long before this puppy graces AT&T shelves across the country. Yum.

Samsung’s Android i7500 receives FCC approval

It looks like Samsung’s Android-powered i7500 has taken one small step in its long march towards an official US launch. The i7500, known to have support for T-Mobile’s 1700MHz 3G band, has made its way though the FCC with tri-band UMTS/HSPA intact. T-Mobile customers may have a long wait for this hot new handset however, as rumors place its arrival in November — just in time for the holiday season. It may seem a bit crazy considering we’ve already eyed a few more upcoming Android handsets from Sammy but hey, T-Mobile customers, you’ve got plenty to be excited about in the coming months.

FCC unveils the AT&T-bound Nokia 6750 “Mural”

The FCC veil of confidentiality has been lifted on FCC ID QMNRM-381 and it looks like Nokia has a new flip-tastic handset on the way dubbed 6750 Mural. Associated photos and manual now available to the public show a very shiny clam shell with 850/1900MHz 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, a camera of unknown resolution and a memory card slot. Oh yeah, the draft of the manual refers to MediaNet and Video Share so this one is definitely headed to AT&T. The lack of any discernible menu button suggests that this flip phone will be a Symbian S40 handset and not S60 like its 6650 counterpart, but that’s just speculation for the time being. Hit the jump for one more external photo courtesy of the FCC.

Sony Ericsson W518a is FCC approved, AT&T bound

We’ve known is was coming for a while and now thanks to the FCC, we can safely say it won’t be long before Sony Ericsson’s new Walkman phone hits AT&T. The W518a is a pretty decent entry/mid-range clam shell for those into music phones:

  • Quad band GSM and dual band HSDPA 850 and 1900
  • 2.2-inch 240×320 pixel TFT internal display
  • 1.1-inch 128×36 pixels external OLED display
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Walkman Player 3.0
  • SenseMe, TrackID, Shake control and Gesture control
  • 3.2 megapixel camera
  • 100MB internal memory
  • Memory Stick M2 support
  • Changeable covers
  • 93.5 x 50 x 14 mm, 98 grams

MediaNet and AT&T Music Store mentions confirm the W518a is bound for AT&T and assuming the carrier keeps the 2-year price way low, this little guy it could certainly be a hit with the younger crowd — amongst those who aren’t looking for a messenger, that is. No word yet on pricing or a release date but something tells us you won’t be losing much sleep over it. Hit the jump for more FCC shots.

Motorola A4500 approved by FCC; new QWERTY world phone for Verizon

Well, we have good news and bad news. The good news is that Verizon seemingly has yet another new world phone coming its way, this time from Motorola. The bad news is that it’s definitely not one of the sexy new handsets we scooped last year. While we continue to wait (impatiently) for stunners like the Flash and Calgary, the upcoming A4500 (aka, Napoleon) will do little to appease our need for sleek new designs from Moto. It will however, service as a viable option for world travelers looking for a simple QWERTY option from Verizon complete with the ability to roam globally. Reported specs include CDMA, EV-DO, quad-band GSM, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity, a fingerprint scanner, a 2-megapixel camera, a memory card slot and of course the QWERTY keyboard. Also, Windows Mobile 6.1 is still the OS of choice of course. It’s not exactly exciting but it’s also not a bad package at the right price, we’d say. Sure, we scooped it to no end way back in July of last year but feel free to hit the jump for a few more shots from the FCC doc anyway.

FCC greenlights the Sony Ericsson W995

Despite the recent wave of ho-hum handsets, Sony Ericsson’s W995 is one of a select few feature phones we’ve been secretly lusting after since it was announced back in February. Once known as the Hikaru, the W995 will be SE’s first Walkman phone to get in on the 8 megapixel action. The specs as you may recall, are pretty respectable — highlighted by the 8.1 megapixel shooter, 8GB of internal memory, 2.6-inch QVGA scratch-resistant screen, aGPS, Wi-Fi, stereo speakers and Walkman player 4.0 accompanied by dedicated media buttons. There is some bad news in all this however; this FCC approval makes no mention of the 850/1800/1900 MHz WCDMA bands we’re all looking forward to in the North American W995a. In fact, it doesn’t mention any WCDMA testing, though it does list the phone as HSPA-capable. As such, we’ll have to assume this is the Euro variant and we’ve got a bit more waiting to do before the North American version finally makes its way through the approval process. Hit the jump for a few more shots.

T-Mobile’s Sony Ericsson CS8 survives FCC Boot Camp

Sure the Samsung Memoir might have been the first 8 megapixel to be carried by T-Mobile, but considering what we thought of it we’re really counting on the Sony Ericsson CS8 to restore our faith in simple phones with beefy cameras. So take it as a good sign that the Cyber-shot branded CS8 just passed through the FCC — now you’re one step closer to having it accompany you to the beach on a hot Summer day as you take photos of bikini-clad girls while cowering behind an ice cream stand. Other than the aforementioned camera that weighs in at 8.1 megapixels, the CS8 is kitted out with GPS, Wi-Fi sans UMA, stereo Bluetooth, FM radio and the all too sparse tag-team combo of 1700/2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA. Just in case you’re wondering, yes, this is basically the T-Mobile version of the C905 and while nothing is confirmed as of yet, it is rumored to be dropping on June 24th.

LG Secret heading to AT&T according to FCC filing

Preliminary FCC documents covering the LG CF750 were first discovered back in October of last year, but it looks like some rummaging through newly-available additions to the filing has revealed some important new details. Namely, this North Americanized version of the LG Secret will indeed be making its way to AT&T. The presence of an AT&T-compatible 3G radio (850/1900 MHz) was a pretty good indicator that the handset was bound for the country’s largest GSM carrier and further digging has unearthed a draft of the user manual chocked full of AT&T references. Mentioning value-adds such as AT&T GPS, AT&T Music, Yellow Pages, MEdia Net and MEdia Mall doesn’t really leave much to the imagination. So, AT&T customers, expect to have another touchscreen option from LG coming your way soon.

Mysterious dual-sliding CDMA handset from Nokia checks in with the FCC

It looks like Nokia has something pretty interesting planned for the US market as an FCC filing has revealed a mysterious dual-sliding CDMA handset. Featuring what appears to be a 3 megapixel camera on the rear in addition to a microSD slot and 3.5mm headphones, the device supports EV-DO Rev. A connectivity along with Bluetooth 2.0 (with A2DP) and an FM transmitter. No word yet on whether or not this will be an S40 or S60 handset, but it does seem to have some of the physical hallmarks of an Nseries device. Unthinkable as it may be, we could be looking at the first Verizon-exclusive (or Sprint-exclusive?) Nseries handset. As with all things shrouded in secrecy, we’ll do our best to figure out just what this thing is all about. Hit the jump for two more images.
