Nokia E6 Passes Through FCC Gates; T-Mobile & AT&T 3G Bands Get Nod

March 18, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Those among you who are die hard Nokia fans can look forward to a new device from the Finnish company. The new upcoming device, Nokia E6, has just passed through FCC gates under the RM-609 codename.

The device has won FCC approval for GSM 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 bands also for WCDMA bands I, II, IV, V and VIII. We guess that will bring some delight to fans awaiting the device in the United States, since it will allow the handset to use both AT&T and T-Mobile’s 3G networks.

The smartphone runs Symbian Operating System and comes with an array of simply amazing features. Images of the E6, which were spotted in the wild last month, had told us that the device would come with striking similarities in appearance to BlackBerry handsets, with the inclusion of BlackBerry-like candy bar form factor, along with a relatively large QWERTY keypad.

The  device is also expected to feature a touch screen. The earlier leaked specifications speak of a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen with VGA (640×480 pixels) resolution.

However, we are yet to gather the essential details of the phone, though some have been spelt out in the documents released by FCC. The FCC has mentioned aspects support for standard Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.

We neither have the pricing details nor the release date info to share with you at the moment. Though we are now sure that the device will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile networks, we do not yet know whether it would work on any other carrier or not.

Stay tuned as we go looking for more on the Nokia E6. Also, do not hesitate to tell us what you would expect in the phone if you are to buy one.
