Nokia Rover appears on FCC with support for T-Mobile USA 3G bands

Nokia Rover appears on FCC with support for T-Mobile USA 3G bandsSo 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
  • Wi-Fi
  • 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!

Quad-band is as good as it gets with GSM, anywhere in the world.

The two of the three US bands for WCDMA are a move in the right direction, but there are five bands (six with Japan’s 800). 2100 is the most common outside of US/Can but what makes it difficult is that some countries have a mix of European/Asian/African UMTS and North American. Australia and New Zeeland have 850 and 900. In some parts of the US the operators have UMTS 1900 and GSM850 (= coverage for voice) but in others they are relying on UMTS 850 and UMTS 1700 to get if not coverage then at least capacity, without GSM850, and as we know low frequency means indoor and wide area coverage for any technology.

So… this is not a worldphone., it is not even a US WCDMA phone When can we see four or five (or even six) band UMTS please please?
