Nokia 6500 slide at FCC

Nokia's 6500 slide could be available in the US, courtesy of a new FCC approval. Following closely behind its candybar equivalent the 6500 classic, the slider should bring equal support for 3G broadband access over AT&T's HSDPA network but replaces the 1GB of internal flash with a microSD card slot for removable storage. The front camera is also intact but may only find one-way use through AT&T's Video Share service.

A draft version of the user manual for the 6500 slide shows no evidence of AT&T branding, however, and the device itself is also clear of any logos or other clear signs that the phone will be available directly from AT&T itself. Without changes, the Nokia handset is most likely to be available in the US solely as an unlocked phone that can be bought separately from any provider and used in basic form with T-Mobile as well as full support for AT&T's Internet service.

Both the slide and the classic are due to launch in Europe before the end of the summer, and may be available shortly afterwards through third-party shops in the US. [via Wireless Info]
