Nokia Rover appears on FCC with support for T-Mobile USA 3G bands
So yesterday I told you that I am dropping my AT&T account and sticking with my T-Mobile family plan. I stated in that post about how I wished Nokia would launch a device that supports T-Mobile USA’s 1700 MHz 3G frequency and according to the FCC documentation found by Engadget, there is a device that may be coming soon that does just that. The device may be the rumored “Rover” that could be the first Maemo-powered smartphone with a form factor between a smartphone an an Internet Tablet. There are very few details known at this time, but we may find out something more at the upcoming Nokia World event. I sure hope this device is real so I can still get some 3G love from a Nokia device.
Also, just like I stated in my post yesterday, the FCC documetation shows it my support ALL three 3G GSM bands for the USA, 1700/850/2100, and if that is the case it will support 3G on T-Mobile AND AT&T! A few other specs from the FCC data include:
- Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, tri-band WCDMA (850/1700/2100)
- Bluetooth + EDR
- FM Transmitter
- Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
- Nokia BL-5J 1320 mAh battery
I am liking the QWERTY keyboard spec and all this T-Mobile 3G goodness. Bring it on Nokia!
