Nokia N8 with support for T-Mobile 3G receives approval from the FCC

Nokia N8 with support for T-Mobile 3G receives approval from the FCC
After receiving a brutal talk down from Eldar Murtazin, the somewhat hyped up Nokia N8 still has a lot riding on its back for the veteran cell phone maker. Although the device that was previewed by Murtazin is an early version of the Nokia N8, the smartphone came out of nowhere and received approval from the FCC. Quickly finding itself in the halls of the FCC is interesting to say the least, especially after the disappointing experience Murtazin was subjected to, but the device in question is listed with the internal code of RM-596 while the shape of the FCC ID label looks to match up with the given images of the Nokia N8 so far. It's tough to say if the S60 5th Edition Nokia Nuron 5230 managed to entice consumers, but the Nokia N8 is looking to be bound for T-Mobile as it packs support for the AWS 3G band. Aside from the 12-megapixel camera it'll be graced with, the other headliner for this handset is Symbian^3 which aims to substantially compete with the graphical eye candy and intuitiveness of other platforms that have risen to the occasion recently. Nokia still has time before this device is 100 percent complete and ready for shipment – so it'd be best to polish up things so that there won't be any complaints about it the second time around.

Most importantly is that it supports AT&T, T-Mobile, and Global 3G UMTS WCDMA bands.http://www.cellphonesignal.com/nokia-n8-passed-fcc-with-9-bands-t-mobile-3g-included/
