Nokia 6555 Confirmed ATT
Nokia's just-announced 6555 clamshell has been planned for an AT&T launch from the outset, according to a pair of FCC filings. One recent entry shows the device with clear AT&T branding on the shell, indicating plans to bring the 2-megapixel phone to the rebranded carrier. An update to a April filing has also revealed official product shots with the previous Cingular logo, however, revealing that the American carrier has intended to carry the phone for months in advance. Both filings appear to confirm beliefs that the 6555's HSDPA Internet access would be useful in the US, a rarity for most Nokia phones in the country.
No apparent hardware changes have been made other than the cosmetic differences. Launch details were expectedly absent from the filings, though the surprise confirmation of the phone for US shores suggest that AT&T service may appear at the same time or shortly after the official September release date for Europe.
