Nokia N78 at FCC

Nokia is already planning an American version of its just-introduced N78 smartphone, a new FCC filing shows. Initially announced with Europe in mind, the phone has gone through testing at the US government agency that should clear it for launch in the US. The inclusion of 3G Internet access for AT&T is uncertain; the stock N78 already supports calling on the needed 850MHz band, but none of the tests immediately point to the necessary HSDPA.

The smartphone still includes all of the media features present on the original, including its 3.2-megapixel camera with flash, true GPS, and Wi-Fi for short-range networking. Few clues are provided as to an actual launch, though the filing was originally made roughly two weeks after the phone's introduction and suggests Nokia is working to quickly turn out a US release of the phone to match the European release in spring. The company most often releases its high-end phones in the US as unlocked models independent of any one carrier.
