Nokia N9 pops up at the FCC with photos and user manual in tow

Nokia N9 pops up at the FCC with photos and user manual in tow
Are you one of those smartphone enthusiasts crossing their fingers in hope that the Nokia N9 makes it to the US? Well, none of the nation's major carriers has officially expressed any interest in offering it, but here is something that slightly raises the chances of the N9 touching US soil after all. Nokia's first MeeGo-powered smartphone has cleared the FCC, and like the case is with most handsets that make it through, both external and internal photos are available accompanied by a complete user manual.

Digging through the filing we see something that was pretty much expected, namely that the Nokia N9 boasts support for pentaband 3G connectivity – just like any self-respecting world smartphone should. What that translates to is that the N9 should theoretically be able to run on any major US carrier that uses SIM cards. However, whether any one of them will be interested in offering it, especially with Nokia's poor smartphone sales, is a whole different story.

The Nokia N9 is expected to launch later this year in at least 23 countries worldwide, yet no concrete release date has been given yet. Until then, the hardcore smartphone geeks can go through the 113-page user manual of the device and get themselves familiar with MeeGo in advance.

I am not getting this phone, but it does look nice. The n9 is a very good example of a distinctive design that will not be mistaken as an iphone copycat, unlike Samsung and Lg phones that are iphone knock offs.

Can't wait, it looks great. Hoping AT&T picks this up so I can pay the upgrade price. I'm getting it regardless but I wouldn't mind paying less. Also it looks like the N9 doesn't have a battery hatch so the idea of an internal battery kind of scares me but Nokia has always been good with battery life. They are taking that note from Apple though, sacrificing ease for aesthetics. My only dilemma is should I get the blue or black one?

The new Nokia Sea Ray will look just like this phone and it will be running the latest version of Windows Phone 7 Mango. It should be announced within a month. I think it's already being manufactured. A few videos have popped up and it looks like it will also have a front facing camera.
