Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia is gearing up for pushing the recently launched Lumia 800 smartphone to more markets than those which got a taste of it back in November. Thus, the company got the handset through FCC testing, and the results already came out.
The Windows Phone device has been torn to pieces by the Federal Communication Commission, and all of its internals brought to light for us to have a look at.
The mobile phone has just received the necessary approvals from the feds, though this does not confirm a near release in the United States.
However, it does bring it closer to the North American market, which certainly sounds great for enthusiasts.
The FCC also unveiled the user manual for Nokia’s Lumia 800, along with the aforementioned photos with its internals.
These documents show that Lumia 800 might arrive on shelves with support for 850 and 1900MHz 3G bands, which would make it compatible with the airwaves of AT&T.
Some of the previous rumors on this device suggested that the wireless carrier might indeed launch a Nokia Lumia smartphone in the first quarter of the next year, and that LTE connectivity might also be included.
In January, T-Mobile’s customers will be able to purchase another Windows Phone from Nokia, namely the Lumia 710, a move made official only recently.
Nokia has yet to announce any plans for bringing the Lumia 800 smartphone to the US market, though it might not be too long before that happens, provided that previous rumors will pan out.
Specs wise, we might expect Nokia Lumia 800 to arrive in the United States with the same capabilities as the international device, including the 3.7-inch touchscreen display, or the 1.4GHz application processor.
The smartphone also includes 16GB of internal memory, along with an 8-megpixel photo snapper on the back, with support for HD video recording.
