Mysterious Nokia handset gets approved by FCC

The FCC has recently tested an unnamed Nokia handset for approval in the US, though very little information about the device is known. The handset, codenamed QTKRM-658 by the FCC, will support T-Mobile's 1,700 and 2,100MHz 3G bands and confirms it as the only possible carrier.

One possible contender is the Nokia E73 that was rumored to be arriving at T-Mobile in June. The E73 is believed to sport a full QWERTY keyboard, a 5-megapixel camera and Symbian S60 3rd Edition.

The Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) make up a spectrum opened up to US carriers in 2006 and is used primarily by T-Mobile, although Cricket and Leap make limited use of it as well. Wind Mobile in Canada is the most notable international carrier on the extra bands. [via T-MoNews]
