New Nokia RM-526 swivels for the FCC on the way to Verizon

New Nokia RM-526 swivels for the FCC on the way to Verizon
Back in the middle of April, we reported about a new phone for Nokia that the guys at BGR illustrated based on their first impressions of the handset. The picture was a drawing of a square display that swiveled out of the way to reveal a square QWERTY keyboard. With a handset that has square back making its way through the FCC, we now can see that such a device exists.  The internal model is the RM-526 and it runs on dual band CDMA/EV-DO. Back last month, it was thought that the device would be running on the non-smart Series 40 interface. Nothing new has developed that would shoot that information down, or confirm it. Based on the data given to the FCC for the test, the RM-526 runs software version VN_2040T13_VZW_108. And yes, the VZW tells us that this device is headed for Big Red. Launch date and pricing is still unknown.
