FCC approves LG Arena with US 3G support

LG Arena at FCC with US 3G

The FCC has tipped LG's hand by publishing a filing which confirms a version of the KM900 Arena is coming to the US with native 3G support. Without showing the phone itself, the documents clearly show its model number as well as the mention of both 850MHz and 1,900MHz WCDMA support, the combination of which would let the Arena tap into AT&T's HSPA-based 3G network.

It otherwise appears to cling to the reference design. Although only wireless technology was detected, the Arena should have a 5-megapixel camera, 8GB of internal storage plus microSDHC, GPS and Wi-Fi.

There are no additional indications that the Arena is destined to become an official choice at AT&T, though the deliberate conversion from international to US 3G makes this more likely. LG hasn't typically sold its cellphones unlocked within the US and instead prefers to tie them to individual carriers.
